Dance belts

I do recall a story from an ABT dancer who did burn someone's icky dancebelt. A few grains of Franencense would be appropriate.

 

 

Cheers,

Mel. I understand the concept of girth but where do you measure from and to? Which anatomical landmarks are you using?

I need a wide waistband to provide support for a medical reason and at 33inches waist I find that is medium. The Wear Moi 3 inch medium fits very well on the waist but needs another 1 or 2 inches on the girth. The Capezio quilted medium has the girth but I prefer a full elastic waistband rather than the cloth panel of the Capezio. I also prefer the wider thong on the Wear Moi. I have tried the Capezio comfort and personally found it very uncomfortable.

I would like to try the Bodywrappers 4 inch but it is not available in the UK and tax etc triples the cost to order from USA. I might be able to have one custom made for less.

Advice please.

Grandad, Mel is no longer active on this board, and there have been quite a few advancements in dancebelts sine this thread started in 2002.  I suggest that you go to http://www.dancebelt.info/ for more info.

GTLS Designs. Thank you for the info. I had a good laugh at his top 10. On his list of suppliers I found a new UK supplier and a make I have not tried. Dans ez. They are out of stock of my size at present but when they are back in stock I shall be trying one.

To update. Dans ez still out of stock so I purchased Ballet Rosa dance belt size 40 (medium). It is very similar to Wear Moi but with about 1/4 inch wider waistband at 80mm and the thong has about 1 inch extra stretch which I find more comfortable to wear.

Further update. I finally managed to buy a Dans-EZ dance belt in Large. Very well made, enough girth that it fits on my waist rather than my hips and still firm support around the waist . The question now is,  what to do with the collection of dance belts I now have?

Use them as Christmas tree ornaments?

The dancebelt.info website is really helpful and the time I wrote the owner the Doctor answered me and helped me choosing a dance belt.

I have 3 dance belts: capezio 5930, capezio N26 and one from DanceJox. This last one is by far my favourite one, wish I had more of them. The only problem was the tax and customs I had to pay, the total price was a fortune! Sadly, here in Portugal the boy section in ballet stores almost doesn't exist.
