A Huipil is a loose-fitting tunic made of joined pieces of fabric.  Some are made with two, others with three which are then joined together.  There is only an opening left for the arm.  Huipiles are not meant to be tight-fitting or to enhance your body curves. You may use a belt or shawl around the waist.
