one of the reasons is probably because it doesn’t fit. I think the person wearing it does not know it is a belly dance costume and is supposed to fit.
but that weird patch of sequins doesn’t help either
I think wire. Bella costumes have been using wire in the costumes forever. It lasts long, but uit will have to be replaced eventually and I think for those thin ornaments that would be a pain!
I’m not a fan of the ultra sexy costumes, they can look good, but audience would be concentrating...
Oh that one with buttons have been around for years, maybe 10 or more! Unless it is a very identical new one 😂
Etsy is notorious with non handmade things and yet really nasty to honest sellers I heard.
