My Ballroom Dresses....
I'm posting these pictures of my ballroom competition dresses for two reasons;
1. I want to have a photographic inventory that I can use for insurance purposes. If anything every happens to the dresses and my computer....I will now have proof of owning these dresses.
2. They are beautiful dresses; I love them and want to share the intricacy of the stone work and the loveliness of the colors, the fullness and floatiness. The dresses make me feel like a princess and help me to get into the role of ballroom dancer.
Ballroom dresses are specially constructed to allow freedom of movement and yet stay in place on the body. They body is usually lycra because it moves with the body and doesn't gap. It has stretchiness, but it retains it's original shape. Ballroom dresses also have built in bodysuits so that they don't ride up when dancing and for modesty when doing kicks or moves that cause the skirt to lift.
