SUGGESTIONS for SELECTING YOUR *NEW* fairy cove BELLY DANCE HALF CIRCLES
SIZE Selection of Your Half Circles
FIRSTLY, let's figure out the SIZE you want,
....then we can go from there to decide the WEIGHTof SILK you would like. FINALLY - let's decide color! EASIEST RULE OF THUMB IS TO GO WITH YOUR HEIGHT
If You are shorter than 5'4" you will most likely prefer MEDIUM
If you are taller than 5' 8" we suggest XLARGE for your taller body frame and reach
If you are very short, prefer small sizes, or for children, try XSMALL or SMALL
Many weights are available to please you, so decide on your size... then the weight!
WEIGHTS & WEAVES Selection of Your Half Circles
We offer many varieties of silke - weaves are commonly made of Habotai, but we offer Half Circles in Silk Chiffon, Silk Satins, and even Silk Crepe!
Each weave has different characteristics, and each weight of each weave varies as well... The larger the number, the heavier the silk. Smaller number, the lighter. USUALLY lighter silks are easier to handle, and there are many benefits in heaviers silks, especially in performing with double veil. We suggest if you are unsure, consider a 6mm weight for being a light, durable weight that will last, flow well, and not be too heavy or too light. You may find less of these on our site, if you see them instock, they are a great find!
With all that said, many factors come together, in your decisions. Lighter silks are more affordable, so choose materials that meet your budget and purpose. 5mm is cheaper than 6mm -- and currently 6mm and 8mm share the same pricing as they cost about the same. The differences are subtle, and worth exploring.
Also, there is no CORRECT size/weight/weave of half circle - this is why we offer so very many! Lots of preferences and each size has special qualities that make them worth owning. You will likely find you have preferences and this will help you decide to order or purchase something you see instock, but is perhaps an unknown fabric or weight to you. Dont worry! All of our Silk Half Circles are AMAZING!
