This is almost identical in design to Capezio's N26, offering light duty support suitable for everyday class. The 2⅜" wide elastic waistband is covered with cotton/Lycra fabric. It only wraps halfway around, allowing extended pouch height in front.
Unlike padded and quilted dance belts which have a structured pouch design, the front is a simple double layer of the same 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.
88% cotton/12% spandex
I have a 32" waist and almost always wear size L dance belts, so that's what size Body Wrappers I bought to test. Their size charts indicate this size should be correct. But this dance belt is so small not only couldn't I wear it, but it wouldn't even fit onto my mannequin for pictures!
Unstretched, the waistband is about 25" in diameter, 30" stretched to the max.
Since I don't really like my Capezio N26, and can't wrap my head around needing anything sized XL, I probably won't spend any more money buying another Body Wrappers to review, hoping to get the right size.
As always, if you are a fan of Body Wrappers, please send me your impressions, which will be included as a contrary opinion.
UPDATE May 2014: Body Wrappers has decided to re-size this model as a result of my review. Stand by for further details.
