Every dancer has to look elegant and charming in their dance attire, and plus-size women are no exception to this rule. A dancer should have a leotard as a basic dancing accessory, but it need not be boring. Plus size dance clothes also have many types of leotards, like:
- Long-sleeve leotard
- Short-sleeve leotard
- Camisole leotard
- Sleeveless leotard
The leotards can be dramatically combined with skirts of various kinds. You can choose skirts of varying lengths each time to make your clothing theatrical. A skirt with pleats, whether full or short, gathered at the waistband is the best bet. These skirts will not hamper your movements while dancing. A sarong as a skirt is an innovative idea. The ballerina skirt is also an option you should consider. The other skirt types are wrap-style dance skirts, elastic waist dance skirts, and Juliet skirts.
Dance dresses are also an option you can consider. There are many kinds of plus size dance dresses from which you can choose to suit your taste. Cross-back, jewel neck dance dress, jewel neck skate dress, Juliet, liturgical skirt are some of the dance dresses you can choose from. You can also combine a liturgical skirt with a leotard.
Belly Dance Clothes
Belly dancing helps a lot in weight loss. Clothes for this type of dance normally come in bright colors, and are flowing. Usually, some metal pieces that make noise are attached to these clothes. This is to draw attention to the movement when dancing. Harem pants also have their own place in belly dancing. These costumes consist of a dossier, a skirt, and some funky jewelry. Veils and long scarves are normally used by people who do not want to show off their midriff. They are at times used to add the dramatic touch to the clothes. Some dancers also choose to wear full-length dresses which are fitted above the waist, and flowing below it.
The double layer skirts with mirrors and thick waist bands are a hit with plus size belly dancers. These skirts are made of chiffon and can be combined with dossiers or dossier-length long sleeve blouses, although the midriff remains exposed. Since these skirts are long in length, they cover up the legs, but the chiffon fabric makes them lightweight.
Free-flowing gypsy skirts are also in vogue this season. The yards of flowing fabric add elegance to the attire. Circle skirts are also used as by plus size belly dancers. Both these types of skirts can have embellishments in the form of laces.
Ballroom Dance Clothes
It is easiest to find clothing for ballroom dancing, as this dance form does not have a set dress code. It is suggested that you choose an outfit which will not entangle your partner. Silk fabric is free-flowing and does not get entangled, while the chiffon fabric, although free-flowing, can wrap itself around your partner. Also, this attire should not be heavily sequined.
