Tuesday, May 11th, 2010

Petticoats are a beautiful article of clothing. Sadly, there are very few local or department stores that sell them. It isn’t an article of clothing that you can normally just go shopping around for at the mall.

That leaves a huge market for online shopping. Online shopping now has a huge market for unique and diverse things. It is a convenient way to shop for many people.

Petticoats in general are best found online. There may be exceptions to this rule, but the truth is that underskirts are not found in department stores anymore. If you want to find a variety of styles, colors, and materials your best option is shopping for them online.
Petticoat
Look for the size guide to determine what size you need to order. Since you won’t be trying on anything physically you want to match your measurements as closely as possible. If the size guide says “fits generously” take that in to consideration and order a size smaller than you normally do.

Find out what type of petticoat you need. A lot of bridal gowns and prom dresses already have built in pettiskirts. Decide what size petticoat you would need for your particular dress to give it the fullness you want.

Keep a picture of your dress handy while you shop. If you are searching for a pettiskirt for your wedding dress it is also a good idea to keep your color palette next to you as well for reference. That way you can make sure the petticoat matches your wedding colors.

Pros and Cons of Letting Your Boy Join Dance

Sunday, January 3rd, 2010

Dance normally is viewed as a feminine sport. A boy that is in dance will more than likely be made fun of by his peers at some point for being a dancer. Whether it is right or not, that is a fact of life.

If your son does want to dance there are many benefits. For one, dance allows an opportunity for a boy to express himself in a safe way. Dance is an expression of one’s self, and can be a constructive outlet.

Dancing can also be a great way for boys to get to know girls. There is a social trend for boys to not want to play with girls, and dancing allows this social behavior to be non-existent. Boys will have to interact with girls, and can continue to have a good relationship with them as they dance.

As the boy gets older, the more confident he will become. Girls who love to dance will really appreciate a boy who will get out on the dance floor and dance with them. If a guy knows how to dance he can most likely get any girl out there on the dance floor.

Dance is an expression of movement with the body. If a boy learns how to dance it is going to teach him how to control his body. Some dance instructors feel that this is an advantage that most boys don’t get, since they will have to be aware of their body, their thoughts, and multi-task when it does not naturally come to them.
