Pedralta cholis are acknowledged worldwide as the very best fit in dance tops. They're suitable for all sorts of activities: dance, yoga, hooping, pilates, aerobics being just a few. They're also great for festival wear, holiday wear and clubbing.
"I just love the fit of your cholis" (Meliai Tribal Dancer)
I originally developed the sleeveless ones for practice wear, but I'm completely hooked on them now and so is the troupe. We wear them under a coin bra. They just add a little extra something so you don't feel you're dancing in your undies.
Plus, they add a great splash of colour to a black coin bra.
Because we add that extra layer to the front, you get extra support and coverage (low nippleage factor :) so they're safe to wear even without a bra, although, because there's good coverage at the back too, you could wear a halter bra underneath if you prefer.

Tips on fitting your Pedralta choli
Pedralta cholis are designed to fit a whole range of shapes and sizes. The soft stretchy fabric moulds to fit your curves. The fronts are cut very low and depending on your height, you may feel a little exposed.
The fronts are designed to be long enough to accommodate taller dancers. If you want a little more coverage in the front, try adding a few stitches to the "V" at the front. This can make all the difference and create a fit that’s right for you and gives you a little more support.
The fabric is so stretchy that it adjusts to give a great fit around arms and the generous stretch ties can accommodate most figures.
