Cropped Brigantine Bodice

Starting at: $124.00

We have taken our awesome Brigantine bodice and given it a twist for those ladies who want to crop it up! Perfect for belly dancers, fairies and fantasy characters, it also works fabulously for pregnant ladies who want to have great cleavage without pressure on the belleh! And yes, it's been field tested for this very purpose.

Because of the sweetheart neckline, you'll find cleavage you never thought you had. Extra busty ladies please email me before purchasing. We may need to customize it to fit you better. 

This is a completely original Odd Bodkin design. It works great as a base for all sorts of fantasy and belly dancing costumes to add charms, coins, trim and such too. Use your imagination and go crazy! Because this is cropped, you should feel comfortable with a lot of exposed skin. This will support the bust and shape the back, but only comes down about 4" on the sides so keep that in mind.
