Bessie Choli Dress “Maqsoum”


Purchase on Etsy

A brand new garment for FCBD®Style dancers, the Choli Dress is literally a choli sewn inside an open-backed dress. The choli hugs your curves while the dress floats gracefully over your curves.  The new version, “Maqsoum” features a wide criss-cross back if you choose to wear a bra and want to cover the straps. Cap sleeves, over-lapping side slits that open where your hips curve-no pulling across the mid-section!

Obsidian Black

95% Modal/5% Spandex. Hand wash, line dry or dry clean.

Thanks to Dala Tribal Dance Company for modeling the dress!

Sizing for the Maqsoum Choli Dress

The Maqsoum is soft and generous. It needs to conform to the body fit snuggly in order for the dress to drape over the curves in the right places.
Sizes: XS, S, M, L, XL, 2XL and 3XL in both A/B cups and C/D cups. We can fit your body!

If you are a small frame with a typical C/D cup, consider your usual dress size but with the A/B cup. If you have a large frame, order the C/D cup.
Sizes correspond to Flying Skirts sizing for The Easy Fit cotton/Lycra Choil. For a great resource on choli sizing, please visit the Flying Skirts website.
