We used these costumes for salsa team performance. We got the plum color which is beautiful!!! It's more pink than purple but it's a nice shade of pink, nothing too childish which was good since we are all college age girls on the team. The fringe does wonders for accentuating hip movement. Didn't have any problems at all with itchiness on myself or any of the girls. The arms holes also seemed just fine. The briefs are like granny panties and do ride up if the costume is worn without tights but with some nude tights or stockings, they stayed in place. We used the costumes about 6 times and although the elastic on the shorts are showing, they are still holding up. The dress does sparkle with the light :The other benefit is that it really fits all shapes because it doesnt hug your body but it still somehow manages to look flattering. Got soooo many compliments from people on campus.

The dance trunks had to be repaired well before the show: the waistband fell apart and the fabric ran. The dress shed fringes, but that's to be expected. Color was as pictured. NO support for bust -- I had to call to find out that info, but at least they told me accurately.

Good dress but fits small!
from Los Angeles, CA
Comments about Balera One Shoulder Fringe Dress:
The dress is made of a stretchy comfortable fabric that moves well with the body. However, the sizing chart does not quite apply as I am normally a size Small but the S was far too short and tight under the armpits. Definitely go up a size.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Good Dress for Variety of Body Types:
About Me Adventurous
This dress is being used for an amateur salsa team performance, and easily fits the bill for being festive and flattering for a broad variety of body types. The fringe is high quality, and the jersey body of the dress stretches well. Also, the fringe is placed in such a way that it camouflages areas that many women are self-conscious of, like the lower belly.The only drawbacks are that the angle of the sequins can look a bit unflattering on larger breasts, and the Adult Small size runs VERY short. I am 5'2", and it barely covered my backside. If you are between sizes, or on the fence, I would highly recommend ordering both a smaller and a larger size, and returning the one that doesn't work.Overall, we are very pleased as a team with the dress, and will probably order again from dancewearsolutions!
Very happy with this purchase!
from Seattle, WA
This dress was purchased for a 1920's themed jazz routine. I ordered the dress in black which looks very classy and high quality. Everything about the dress is perfect! The only complaint I would have is there isn't a lot of breathing room under the arms but that isn't a reason to not purchase this dress because it isn't uncomfortable or distracting. The sparkles on top are a little itchy but that's hard to avoid in a dance costume. The dress comes with black bloomers but I prefer spandex shorts so I wore my own shorts underneath the dress and it still looks like a part of the costume. I am very happy with this purchase and definitely recommend this product!
A favorite for any performance!
Dress is a regular in our shows. Very comfortable and easy to slide in for quick change of costumes. Adds great movement to the dancing. Audience love it!

Cute, but too tight for women
from New Jersey
I often buy size XS, 0-2 at the stores. I ordered a size S because it is the smallest for adult size. there was no XS. However, when I got the dress, I was very surprised how small and how tight this dress is. It feel like a junior dress, not an adult dress. The front cuts exactly the same as the back, which leaves no room for your women's breats. The neckline also cut too close to the neck. I don't think if I exchange it to a size M will help . The back of the size S fits perfectly now, which means the size M will be too large at the back for me, even if the front fits better. I haven't wore it yet because it is not comfortable for me to have my chest all "tied" tight, can't breath. The dress is very cute though. it may be better for juniors who have not developed their breasts.

from Xenia, Oh
Dresses were great except for the length. They are really short even my short performers were showing a little to much!!
This dress is for a dance competition--the dance has a Latin feel. The dress s perfect! It is swingy and, sassy, and fun. It looks great on stage. I am very impressed with the quality. The dress also arrived within the stated time -- just in time for the competition!

About Me Classic
I expected the fringe to come off when dancing, but never had a problem! It was a little pricy for my liking since I only wore it once. The only downsides are: the sequins makes your underarm irritated and the positioning of the sequins on the chest is a bit awkward. It's definitely designed for girls/women with the "straight and narrow" figure.
Very cute dress. I ordered a size bigger for my daughter because of the other reviews on here that stated it ran small. It turned out we probably could have gone with her regular size.
To measure girth, place tape measure on center of right shoulder, run through crotch and back to right shoulder loosely (as shown in diagram).
Remember, the girth is the most important measurement.
When in doubt, let the girth measurement determine size.
