The Different Types of Belly Dancing Bras

May 22, 2008
A Perfect Fit for the Belly Dancing Bra

The Belly Dancing Bra like the belt belongs to the whole costume set. One bra can be worn with several skirts, so it looks like a new costume every time. Bras have many nice beaded designs and colors.

Two Styles

There are basically two styles of the Belly Dancing Bra, the Turkish style and the Egyptian style. But Egypt is the country where some of the best costume makers in the world are found and they make both the styles.

There are many designs of the Belly Dancing Bra on websites of shops and dealers who sell them. If you need a large size Belly Dancing Bra which cannot be bought off the shelf, you can order it at one of the shops you choose and they will custom order it for you.

The Belly Dancing Bra comes with gold coins, silver coins, beads and sequins. Also the bra and belt come as a set, and is often sold together. For a belly dancer the size of the bra is the most important factor. The fit has to be proper and comfortable at the same time. Also it has to be appropriate for use in belly dancing.

Size and Fit

A costume bra and your normal bra size may not be the same size. If a Belly Dancing Bra is marked 34 B, and you normally wear 32 C, it is a probability that the bra may fit you well with a few adjustments to the circumference. Actually a Belly Dancing Bra should provide ample coverage.

Since there are beads and sequins on an average professional Belly Dancing Bra, you require perfect support for it. Hence you cannot afford to have elastic, and definitely need a non-adjustable bra. Pick a bigger size, so that the size can be made smaller, by reducing on the band or the shoulder straps.

Many shops who sell costume bras leave one edge of the straps unsewn, so that you can attach it wherever you like. This saves you the trouble of ripping out the seams and reattaching them.

Affordable Bras

A Belly Dancing Bra for a professional dancer is an expensive affair. But there are more affordable ones available for students and semiprofessional dancers. These cheaper types of bras are a good deal lighter and there are many styles too. There is a greater range of sizes and adjustability.

Corset-Style

The corset-style Belly Dancing Bra offers adjustable lacing and can properly fit more than one band size because the criss-cross style of straps provides ample support and helps to distribute weight evenly. These bras have been tested and sized by real women and not just plastic torsos, so that a proper fit can be ensured and the dancers can enjoy their dancing totally "accident-free".
