Dance belts

Recommended Posts

I think it is better to get the boys into a dance belt before they really "need" it. You don't want to wake up one day and say, "Yikes!" There is a great website called "Doctor Dancebelt's Guide" that can answer all of your dance belt related questions. I got some great advice there about how to put them on properly and how to fit them. (The "Doctor's" rule of thumb is age 11). Recently, Body Wrappers has come out with a new belt called the ProBELT. My son likes it far better than the Wear Moi version.

We ended up waiting a while and have just now bought two Capezio dance belts - he's 10. He hasn't started developing but was ready to wear one. We went for the string. He did say it was uncomfortable the first time he wore it but he also liked the way he looks. He won't go without it now. I'm glad we got the first one before puberty as now hopefully it will just be a matter of me buying a couple of new ones when I think he needs it and not too much awkwardness.

I bought the first pair to my son when he was eight. Because of the white tights he was wearing in performances. Those were full seated Wear Moi's. He grows very fast, soon the next one was g-string model. It felt weird for him at first and he refused to use it. I told him, that db protects him and keeps him healthy. And all dancing males wear them. And finally "I'll give you two euros if you'll use them in one class" :lol: He agreed and after the class he said "It felt weird at first, but then I got use to it". 

He hit his puberty in the age of 11, I'm so happy this dance belt thing is perfectly normal to him now.
