Bellydance bras standards- The bras’ bust sizes are elastic and come with several hooks. You are free to add a bra extender to gain in a few seconds, inexpensively and very discreetly several centimeters in the back.
- Concerning the cup size, it is made so it can be worn by 1 or 2 sizes, usually cup B and/or C, C/D or even E/F, according to the indications given in our store.
Bellydance bras handcrafted in Egypt- The bras have specific hooks that you can move as you wish (by unstitching them and then sewing them back) depending on the size of your bust size but also behind the neck.
- The bust size of these bras is usually very long, so the greatest number of dancers can easily adjust it to their morphology by fitting the hooks to their size.
Ajustable bras and topsThese are tops and bras with adjustable long straps in the back and behind the neck to suit a large number of dancers with varied morphologies. These tops and bras fit very easily without any sewing work just by tying 2 knots, one in the back and the other behind the neck.
Extensible skirts and pants
Depending the models, they stretch more or less around the waist so fit, for the majority of them, size 36 to 42. For larger sizes, sewing work is advised such as :
- cut the elastic band at the waist of the skirt/pants to add a small strip of fabric or extra elastic band to gain some cms
- unstitch/open the skirt/pants on one side (lateral opening) to add fabric on the length (either with similar fabric or with the same one bought exclusively for this sewing work). It is not unusual that some groups of dancers all buy the same skirt + an extra skirt of the same model to be cut so they’ll be able to adjust the skirts of all the dancers in the group.
Belts from sets standards
They come with several levels of velcro. However, if you are a few centimeters short, go ahead and add a piece of fabric, elastic band or use safety pins in the back, it’s very discreet!
Ajustable belts from sets
These belts have long straps in the back, to tie according to one’s morphology and waist size and so they’ll fit the largest number of dancers...
