Designed by Pharonics of
Egypt, this beautiful costume photographs well, moves well and looks
fantastic under lights.
It comes with
skirt-in-one, bra, veil, arm bands with bell sleeves, an anklet, a
headband and a hair comb with gold flower (never worn.) There are also
detachable short sleeves (which I am not wearing in the photos, but
you can see it with the sleeves in a different color below in a photo
$450 U.S. plus shipping.
The costume is very
gently used, and there is no bead loss. I wore it for photos, but
beyond that I have only danced in it a handful of times. Basically,
the only reason I'm selling is that, though it is a beautiful costume,
I've never been excited about the way the bras from this particular
designer fit on my particular frame, and so I haven't worn it in at
least 8 months.
This costume has an
elasticized skirt top and some stretch to the fabric, plus room for
adjustment in the bra, and additional fabric at the hemline to adjust
The costume would
likely fit from 32-B (with pads) to 36C or 38B, and up to a 36"
top-of-hip measurement. Length could be easily adjusted to fit a
dancer 5' to 5' 5", depending hip fit and your length preferences.
Those of you who know
me know that I'm personally a little on the smaller side (5'3", size
32C bra and 33" at the top-of-hip-belt line), but this costume is
fairly simple to adjust out to the size mentioned above.
Basically, it's actually a little big on me. there is a good 1 to
1-1/4 inches of hem that could be let down (I have long legs for my
height and wear my skirts long or dragging so someone a good 2-3
inches taller would work, depending on the preferred fit.) I had the
bra hooks/straps are overlapped by 4-5 inches in back and about 1-2"
at the neck, plus there is room for padding. I had also cinched the
elastic in the top of the skirt to bring it in in further, and have
let that back out.
