Today's question comes from one of the Blog followers. Here is her question:
My name is ----- and I have been learning belly dancing from your site for a little over a year now. First, I would like to thank you for doing what you do and sharing this beautiful art form with us.
Second, I would like to ask a few questions about belly dance and body size/shape. So I am pretty busty (like DD busty) and my hips are wide. So when I am practicing moves like chest lifts, drops, and shimmies, hip drops, shimmies, and Mayas they don't look as "neat" or "controlled" as I (guess) they should. Is there a technique that I could do to make all of these moves look more "neat" and "controlled." In addition, I was wondering if you knew of places (online or otherwise) where I could buy belly dance tops (specifically like the one you have on in the video linked here) that accommodate women with large busts?
Please contact me at -----@yahoo.com at your earliest convenience to let me know.
Thank you again for all you do!
Check out the video below for the answer to the first part of the question regarding the moves.
Regarding the 2nd part of the question asking about plus size tops, I have posted earlier links to some beautiful Choli tops available in different sizes up to XXL. These tops are from Miss Bellydance which sells a lot of belly dance wear for up to XXL.
I am listing that same link here for you below.
We all know how important a beautiful choli top is in class but we all know even more how important that the choli top provides the best support and allows for movement comfortably.
Miss Belly dance makes some of the best choli tops that fit any size from small to Extra large in comfy fabric and and gorgeous designs.
These some of my favorites. I own some of them and my students have purchased some and swear by them. So if you are looking for a new choli top, try one of these. The best is that they ship from the US so you get it very quickly and they are quite affordable as well.
