Capezio N26 cotton-Lycra

This is Capezio's most basic dance belt, offering light duty support suitable for everyday class.  The 2½" wide elastic waistband is covered with cotton/Lycra fabric.  It only wraps halfway around, allowing extended pouch height.  

Unlike padded and quilted dance belts which have a structured pouch design, the front is a simple double layer of the sweat-absorbent cotton/Lycra, darted at the bottom to form a pouch.  The thong is made from the same stretchable fabric.

Not recommended for partner lifts.
Doesn't smooth the bulge enough for performance.

90% cotton/10% Lycra

With typical Capezio attention to size, some N26s have thongs that are too long in relationship to pouch length, while on other dance belts the same size they're too short, making it hard to get the pouch bottom to fit properly.

From online store reviews:
"Nerd of Thunder says ”It’s like a sports bra for your dude parts:    I am taking an areal silks class and found some of the movements to involve high potential for testicular discomfort. This keeps everything out of the way quite securely, and is about as comfortable as it could be. 

Centurion:     I would also normally buy a M but the L is still a tiny bit tight (which is probably good) so be sure and order a size up. I think they make the thong strap going up the back wider than it has to be, but it doesn't cause me discomfort. I just ordered some more.

"VDancer" from San Diego:     I got a small for my 29" waist.  It keeps everything in place. However, the lining in the front digs into my skin and an elastic piece on the inside comes out at the top. Over time it begins to hurt. I typically wear it for 2-3 hours at a time and after about 2.5 hours, the lining starts to itch and feel uncomfortable, but this is probably because I got a size too small. I would recommend it if you can deal with the itchiness after wearing it for a prolonged period of time. 

 "Joseph":      I have about a 29 inch waist and I ordered the medium size and it fits great. The back thong gets a little uncomfortable but hey, it is a dance belt after all. Very good quality, durable and long lasting. I used my first for about a year and a half.  I still have it and it is in great condition.

“TSutz16”    Very comfortable, as far as dance belts go. The material is soft and stretchy, but also holds things in place. Great product, would definitely recommend it.However, as far as sizing is concerned, go one size up. I originally ordered a large and had to return it for an XL because it was too small.

“Liam”:     This is a good quality dance belt, but it's very small. For casual wear (a few hours at most) it's fine, but when you're teaching/training all day the constriction and chafing get painful. Particularly in the butt strap and lack of pouch.

“Nano”:  It was perfect for the production of CATS that I'm in. I can dance for literally hours and I never have to worry about uncomfortable landings from a leap. Safe, secure, and reliable!
