Almost all saris show the belly, although it depends on the sari blouse and its length.
It actually depends on how you wear them, there are quie a few different ways to drape a sari.

Traditionally the sari is viewed as the national dress of India, with the shalwar kameez the national dress of Pakistan, but these days they are interchangeable and in some ways always have been.

Letizia's red dress at Mary and Fred's wedding is one of my all time favourites, it's timelss and to me anyway, iconic.

One of my favourite dresses worn by Queen Rania is her stunning blue caftan by Elie Saab in 2002 at the Arab Women's Summit:

But mean when pakistanis wear Sari,they always hide the belly,inlike indians.

not true Salomé.
I can show you tons of pictures of Pakistani women not only showing generous amounts of their backs and stomachs, but also wearing very skimpy sari blouses, sometimes with spaghetti straps, other times even strapless.
There is no standard difference between how Pakistanis and Indians wear saris.
It all depends on the individual.
My mom wore them when I was younger and she never hid her stomach.

Letizia's red dress is in my opinion the most fabulous dress I have seen. Everything came together for that evening; Letizia'a coming out in the royal arena, she glowed as only a bride to be does, a fabulous body to be able to carry off such a dress and the most handsome man by her side. Even if she wears the dress again the circumstances will never be the same and the total impact will be different.

Yeah, she made a point with that dress: here I am and I am going to stay whether you like it or not

Very true, Humera. My cousin recently got married in Lahore and alot of her friends/family wore saris and short skimpy blouses are very much the fashion, they have been for years. As for sleeveless blouses they've been going since the 60's.

My mother's saris all reveal a bit of stomach, as do the few I own. I've always found it odd that people are so willing to accept the "flesh-flashing" that goes along with a sri but not otherwise.

I loved these gowns of Diana's:

Letizia

I agree with everyone that Letizia's red dress at the Danish Royal Wedding is magnificent. It will stand the test of time and will be a classic in 20 years time.

No, Irene was born in June 2005, so Cristina got pregnant in September/October 2004.
