How to Pick Your Dance Competition Dress
Now that you’ve got your feet figured out, it’s time for the fun part: the dress! Searching for a dance competition dress can be loads of fun, but it can also be difficult if you’re not sure what you’re looking for. Most times, you will want to consider the styles typically worn with the dance you’re doing, but there will still be room for creativity and personality in your competition costume.
Before we get into the dance competition costume trends, let’s first go over a few key points to consider when choosing a dress.
- Your body type. As with buying any item of clothing, the first thing to keep in mind is your body type and what shapes fit and flatter it the best. If you have broad shoulders, for example, it might be smart not to get a dress that’s constrictive to your shoulder. And if you have a small waist, choose a cut that accentuates your curves in the best way possible.
- The color. Don’t buy a hue that will wash you out or clash with your hair color. Even if you love the style of the dress, make sure what you buy will attract attention for the right reasons.
- The fit. Luckily, most competition dresses come with adjustable straps and material, but you will need to make sure that the bust area is fitted correctly and the straps are secure but comfortable. If you feel the dress is too tight or too loose in the dressing room, the ill fit will only be magnified on the dance floor. Venus Dancewear will provide Free custom size services.
