Finding The Best Belly Dancing Skirt

Sep 2, 2008
Belly dancing can be a great deal of fun. It is also a great way to get some exercise and tone up your muscles. Once you get past the beginner stage and want to take your dancing to a new level you will want to find a great belly dancing costume. The right skirt can make the whole costume. The selection will largely depend on your particular tastes.

The skirt that you ultimately choose should be comfortable enough to dance in. It should be loose enough for the intricate moves you will be making while you are wearing it. If the skirt is too tight you will not be able to perform to the best of your abilities.

The Fabric

The fabric that is used on your skirt is very important. It is one thing that will make your costume the best it can be. The fabrics that are most often used are velvets, satins, silks and chiffon. If price is a concern you will find that silk and velvet are the most expensive fabrics to use. Satins and chiffons are not quite as expensive.

Chiffon is a very alluring fabric because of its sheerness. It almost gives the appearance of being transparent. This can be perfect for enhancing the movements of the belly dancer as she performs her routine. If you have a need to be more modest you will probably want to stay away from chiffon skirts. Satins and silks move and shimmer while the dancer moves as well. They are very light and can catch the air as the dancer whirls and turns on the stage. Velvet is a heavier material and might not be the ideal choice for someone who is looking for a flowing lightweight look.

The Styles

The styles of skirts are very varied. You will want to consider your routine and the audience before you make a final choice. The selection of a fuller skirt is appropriate for a dance routine that has you twirling and whirling around the stage.

A dance routine that showcases your legs might be best served by a skirt that is not quite as full. A skirt that is sheer and shows off your legs is a more appropriate belly dancing skirt for this type of performance.

You can choose a skirt that has slits to show off your legs. This is perfect for an audience of men that will appreciate the look of your legs that will flash in front of them as you perform your routine. Belly dancing skirts come with some beautiful embellishments and adornment. Look for embroidery and jewels to add some extra drama in your skirt.
