How does the Barong fit around the torso?

The Barong is traditionally a loose-fitting shirt. Due to the lack of stretch in jusi & Piña fabric, Barongs made of these fabrics are always made with a generous at the chest. This allows one to comfortably move his/her arms and torso while wearing the Barong. The cut of the Barong is "straight," which means there is no tapering of the torso.
