Turquoise Velvet Egyptian Costume - £175 + postage
This beautiful and unusual costume was one of my first professional costumes and has been worn a lot - despite this it is in excellent condition which goes to show the high quality of workmanship. The only real sign of wear and tear is on the bra lining, which is stained by fake tan, so you may want to replace it. Otherwise all the beading and fringe is intact. It's made with a vibrant turquoise velvet. I added clear straps to the back of the bra to hold the bra band up - these can be easily removed if you want. I originally bought this from another dancer who had added a strip of matching lycra to the top of the skirt, with the waist strap sewn to the top. This would be easy to remove and convert back to the original style if you prefer.
Bra: Backstrap: 37, Cup: C - please see photos for more detailed measurements. There is padding that could easily be removed.
Skirt: Upper hip: 33 inches at very top, 36.5 at original top, Lower hip: 38 inches unstretched, 43 inches stretched, Length: 40 inches including lycra insert, 37 from original skirt top.
