While there are many styles of thoub worn by women, the silhouette remains the same. Tailors today section the traditional thoub in the same manner. The main parts of the thoub are made up of the body (bidan), large square sleeves (chem), triangular shaped pieces (ibat) often in a contrasting tone, and the rectangular idkhala section ties the top part to the tinfayeh bottom part.
