You will find that the sizing table is not structured as usual. This is because the width of the fabric dictates the maximum horizontal circumference. I recommend you choose a fabric that is at most 50cm (20") and at least 20cm (8") wider than your full bust measurement. You can also control the intensity of the ruffles by increasing or decreasing the difference between your full bust measurement and the width of the fabric. If the difference is small, the ruffles will not be as pronounced and vice versa.
The Story Behind The Name: 'Xochi' (pronounciation [sochi]) is derived from classical Nahuatl 'Xochitl' and translates to 'flower' ?. It is also the name of a Toltec queen of the late 10th century. Xochitl called upon other women to join her in battle, and created and led a battalion made entirely of women soldiers. She died on the battlefield. The later Aztec culture saw the Toltecs as their intellectual and cultural predecessors. I chose this name for its beauty and also for its empowering namesake.
When wearing the Xochi dress and two-piece, think of Xochitl and you might just feel as brave and strong as her when she lead her warriors into battle!
