Size: One Size / Free Size

Trajes are made of loose fitting fabrics that are fitted by folding and tying with belts.  Because of this naturally flexible style, huipils and cortes are able to fit a variety of figures and body shapes with ease. In fact, some huipils have no formal seams, and are only tucked into the waistband! Often, huipils are fitted only with an arm seam, allowing them to fit larger busts with out alterations.

If you have larger arms, or are concerned about the fit of your traje, please feel free to contact us at coordinator@tramatextiles.org
