Hippie Bohemian "One Size Fits All" ClothingPay attention to the garment measurements located in the description of every item on this site. You will need this information to see if the item will fit you. Make sure that the garment measurements are at least 2-3 inches BIGGER than your body measurements.
So many of the really authentic hippie bohemian clothing comes as "Free Size" One size fits all" or "One Size Fits Most".
In reality, One Size clothing means that the style item is only manufactured in One Size rather than One Size is meant to fit all.
Obviously, one garment could never fit "all" people, but this type of clothing is usually meant to be worn loose and the cut of the garment is meant to drape nicely on a wide range of sizes.
Even within one clothing maker, the cut of the "one size fits all" clothing can vary dramatically between styles as well. For example an Indian kurta will be cut larger than an Indian camisole top and both are "One Size"
Because of this, any good online website that specializes in selling this type of clothing should include the measurements of each garment so the shopper can determine if the item will fit. Make sure to read the garment measurements of each item on this site to prevent size and fit issues.

You must measure yourself accurately!
Measure yourself (Bust waist hip) with a measuring tape and don't pull the tape tight. It should be loose. Make sure you are measuring the fullest part of your hip usually 8 inches below the waist.

Make sure the garment measurements are at least 2-3 inches BIGGER than your body measurements and you should be fine.
Some styles are worn looser than the average 2-3 inches larger than your body measurements. In this case measure one of your favorite fitting garments and compare those measurements to the items you are shopping for.
Remember the garment measurements must be BIGGER than your body measurements.
