Belly Dancing Apparel Online

When it comes to belly dancing apparel the options can seem outrageous and limitless. Belly dancing clothing comes in many styles, colors, materials and even sounds. Some apparel is detailed and intricate and other outfits are simple and plain. There are so many options you are bound to like a lot.

Your belly dancing clothing should depend on your style and type of dance. Drumming songs would be performed well wearing short shimmy style skirts, great for fast hip movements. The traditional Turkish and Egyptian music would be well suited with a longer skirt.

Belly dancing tops or bras can be as intricate and as heavy as hip scarves. There is a variety of patterns of coins and colours to choose from. If you are looking for a revealing top, those definitely exist as well.

Some belly dancing skirts are fish tail style or have long slits that show off the performers leg. Silk is a very common material used for making belly dancing skirts. The layering, ruffles and material of a skirt can make your spin look beautiful and graceful. Silk and Georgette (a sheer lightweight fabric) are the most common materials used for veils. Veils can be used to give variety to a routine, emphasize a move and cover the face for an intriguing look.

Hip scarves can come in a variety of different colors and materials. A hip scarf (when moved properly) is what catches the audiences attention. The amount of coins on your scarf determines the weight of your scarf. The amount of coins on a scarf is sometimes defined as tiers of coins. A series of 4 rows of coins would be referred to as a 4 tier belt. Different tiers and amounts of coins will give different chimes. Some belly dancers purchase additional coins and sew them onto a skirt for extra weight. Hip scarves are also called hip belts.

Necklaces, anklets, earrings, bracelets and headpieces together can make a dancer look elegant. If you choose to also wear this jewellery outside of dance you will get lots of complements on the uniqueness and quality of it.

Harem pants or geisha pants are often used as well as yoga pants. These pants can be paired up nicely with a hip scarf.

Remember where you want your audience to look. Your clothing should show off your belly and arms but there are no strict rules when it comes to your belly dancing apparel. The options are yours to choose from.

Choosing your belly dancing clothing (your tops, skirts, veils, hip scarves, jewelry and pants) can be time consuming but it doesn't have to be, there are many sites that will allow you to get everything in one place.

Enjoy the shopping.
