My only complaint is how limited your colour selection is

More colors please
I have these tops in several colors, bought when they were available at a local boutique (they no longer carry). I finally found a store to order them but the color selection sucks. Please add more colors. Looking for a light denim blue color. I love these tops, they wash well and I get compliments every time I wear one.

Please carry larger sizes!
I am a hippie from the sixties. I am menopausal, which in my case means I am no longer skinny :D I wear a size D cup and basically wear a 2X. I have your sun/moon poncho in the black/grey tones and I am in love with it, But I wore guaze tops like the one in this listing all the time. Won't you consider plus sizes for the fluffier women in your soul family?

I ordered this top in white. It is nice to have a semi see through look with this color, to wear a printed cami top underneath.( For a well complimented unique look) :) It had a scratchy feel so I washed it in cold water on delicate and let it air dry. That created a much softer feel... I am definitely ordering more to compliment the other items I have gotten already through Soul Flower!!! Enjoy your journey!!!

Classic Hippie Gauze Top
I ordered this in BLACK. I am 5.3", petite, 120 pounds, short waisted, bust 34-36, waist 29, hips, 37.5. I have to RETURN this top because mostly, the back of it bloomed out, way too much fabric especially in the back, at least for me. Nice bell sleeves. Didn't like the white buttons on the black, but the main reason was I was floating in it.

Soft and roomy, beautiful!
I have wanted one of these indian gauze tops for a long time, and thanks to the reviews I ordered two! They are so soft and the stitching makes them look elegant. The ivory one is slightly see-through but a cami will fix that. I am 5'7 150lbs and these gauze tops fit wonderfully, flowy, and still roomy!

Hippy Peasant Blouse!
I just received my gauze blouse today and I had to put it on immediately! My new favorite shirt! It's loose and breezy, overall very comfortable! I ordered the white one and it was slightly see through but it was no issue! I wore a white cami underneath it but I would have been find with a black bra! Definitely my new favorite shirt! Soulflower also sent me a free infinity scarf and some hemp chap-stick! They make you feel so valued as a customer here; They are amazing! :)

Wonderful gauze shirt!
I was look for a comfortable gauze white blouse for Kundalini yoga. I saw this one & thought I give it a try. I measure a full-figured 45-ish inches across the bust so one size doesn't always mean me. Lo and behold! Its just right. I am soooooooo happy!!!!!!!

Nice fit, good quality. It is a scratchy material but that is to be expected with these type of indian kurtas

I'm 5'8, 160 lbs, and wondered about this 'fits all' blouse. Washed inside-out , cold water , delicate, then the dryer incrementally. Love them! Burgandy + pale blue.

Finally - the perfect gauze kurta!
I have been wearing gauze kurtas forever and a few years ago I noticed that they were all strange. Too thick or thin fabric. Huge sizes. Scratchy texture.
I got this one in a green color and white also. They are awesome. I washed them separately on gentle cycle and then put them in the dryer until they were the size I need. They are just the right weight of fabric and are very soft. I am going to order more as soon as I get paid. It is very hot where I live and these are going to be wonderful this summer.

Wonderful Gauze Top All Season
I live on the coast and these indian gauze kurtas are PERFECT in hot, humid weather...the 100% cotton also keeps you warm when its cooler and cool and dry when its hot...how do they do that? I have one in every color and they are cute with boho/gypsy earrings and most any casual pants...always get compliments! I usually wear a camisol underneath but except for the white, they're not see-through. This is a well made top at a good price. They wash well and dry quickly - doesn't need ironing if you don't want.

Kurta fits good
Love the cut. I wear a XL or 14-16 and like things loose. This fits just right, not baggy, just loose and comfy. The white one definitely requires a bra, it is pretty see thru. I washed in cold water, no dryer, still fits the same. I will buy a colored one. The sewing quality is good, typical for things made in india.

The Most Versatile Top Ever
These are my absolute favorite tops ever (THE classic gauze kurta). I've been wearing kurtas like these for almost twenty years and they are my go-to shirt for all occasions. They are, as I said in the review title, versatile. Dress up, dress down, layer, jeans, skirt, leggings... they go with everything. They hold up fairly well to constant wearing and tearing too, especially if you hand wash and air dry them. I have had to replace a few over time, but believe me, I get more wear out of them than most clothing. Here's a helpful note about these: lighter colors may require a cami underneath due to some sheerness. The fit is extremely flattering as well- when I have one on, folks ask if I lost weight (even though I hadn't). That's always a bonus ego boost! So like the other reviews have said, buy one or two or ten; you won't be disappointed!

I bought one of these and liked it so much, I ordered one of nearly every color. They fit perfectly (I'm a size 14), look great, aren't too heavy, and wash well. (Yes, it says handwash only, but I do them at the laundromat without any issues so far). I love them as a work top that looks professional while still showing my style.

Update of previous review
First of all, I adore these shirts, and have worn them since the 1970's. Thankfully, they're still made and available right here. A couple of points, though. These shirts hold up very well if you hand-wash them in cold water and let them dry naturally. The saturated colors (dark colors) will release a lot of dye. Just soak and don't fret--it'll be fine. If you need the shirt to shrink, put it in the dryer. That's also a caveat in case you don't want shrinkage!

Love it!
I wore this style top in the mid '60's, and have been looking for another for quite a while. I am delighted! While this garment is roomy, I don't feel that I'm swimming in it. It covers the butt, and is cool without being too filmy, great body to the fabrics it hangs well. Perfect summer cover-up to and from the gym. Upon washing in hot water, it crinkled up a bit, which was fine with me, and the sleeve length shortened so I don't need as many roll ups. I will order more! (I'm 63, 5'2", 118 lbs.)

Fits too large for me
I really liked the color, purple, but it is just too big for me. I am a size 8-10 and the top wasn't flattering on me.

I am a size small or x small typically, so I was a little weary of the one size fits all thing. I thought i'd be swimming in it and itd have no shape. BUT it fits perfectly!! its not super baggy and hanging off of me looking frumpy...its beautiful and flowing! I love it so much i want it in all the colors. Also, I got white. A review on here said it was crazy see through...but i couldnt see through mine :) LOVE LOVE LOVE this item and everything I get from soul flower for that matter. <3

Carol Kirschenbaum
My go-to summer top
I've been wearing gauze kurtas just like these since I moved to abominably hot Austin, Texas,in the early 1970s. REALLY! Even have a photo with my newborn and me wearing a white kurta. Whenever it's hot here in Portland, Oregon (which happens a LOT), I call on one of the many gauze kurtas I've bought from Soul Flower. I'm petite, and I find washing and drying them will shrink to my needs. Covers your arms giving critters and UV rays more of a challenge. ;-)

I had a shirt just like this for years, and lost it somehow. I am so glad to have found the perfect replacement. I am about a size 12 and it fits me loose and comfy. Quality seems very good as well.

Do not (machine) wash this
Do not (machine) wash this, it will cause start to fall apart. Other than that, it is a beautiful top.

Little Bee
Classic Kurta
I guess I'm on the fence with this piece. I'm about a size 6 and it's really, really big. Did I say 'really'? It's pretty (light blue), and I'm probably too lazy to return it. Maybe I'll wash it and see if it shrinks up a bunch.

The Hippie Art Teacher
Most Versatile & Flattering Top Ever
I loooooove this kurta! I own three, all picked up at different times and places, and the one I received from Soul Flower is high quality. Don't be afraid of the free-size; it'll fit just about any body type and look great, from petite to full figure. It is a classic and a staple for any type of wardrobe.

classic gauze kurta
omg I found my top. I jumped for joy--its identical to a top I've owned for approximately 20 years--which is really worn out. Will definitely purchase another color real soon. I typically don't write reviews! this is a TEN in my book.

Indispensable items!
I ordered the purple one first, and liked it so much that I ordered the red and black. These fit beautifully. I agree with the reviewer who said they'd fit up to a size 16; they're nice and roomy (though not sloppy at all), cool, comfortable. I'm thrilled that I found these!

Pretty, Feminine Top
This is sooooo pretty, classic and not too hippyish-looking. I think that's because it has French seamed side panels, making the fit better than you would expect from a one size garment. It tapers in ever so slightly as it heads south, then widens out again in the right places. The bust is generous for me but it still looks good because of the way it hangs, which is just lovely. I am a size 12 and this gauze blouse drapes on me perfectly, even skimming my hips. I would imagine, depending on how your body is built, a person up to a size 16 could wear this. The weight of the gauze is not the see-through, tissue paper kind. It is a bit more substantial and feels like you are actually wearing a blouse. I bought one in white and can wear it with just a bra underneath on a hot day. Whether alone, over a tank or a turtleneck, I will get a lot of wear from this. It's really pretty.

What's not to like :)
This boho gauze top is comfy & roomy, but with a flattering line due to side panels. It is one size fits all, so as a result it runs on the larger side, but as you can see on the model who is trim, it still looks good. And with someone heavier (i.e. yours truly), it actually is thinning, which is always a plus. :) It is tunic length on me and works well with pants and skirts. I got my boho gauze top in burgundy and it is a beautiful color and a fun shirt to wear.

Beautiful Boho Gauze Top
This boho gauze top is beautiful. I was a little bit worried when it said "one size fits most" but it really does look lovely on. I'm planning on eventually buying all the colours!

Gorgeous in person !
The details show up much more in person - and they are gorgeous. I've got 3 colors - think I need more ;) Never thought I'd be able to find these again. Thanks Soul-Flower, for letting me feel "young" again :)) Old hippies never die !!

Love this boho peasant blouse!
It fits perfectly, I'm petite and it shrunk a little bit after the first washing - a good thing! It comes out of the dryer ready to wear - no ironing needed. I would love a white one!

Very Cute
Prettier in person. Though since one size fits all it is a little wide. I have the one in burgundy and very nice color.
