WearMoi 206 - wide waist


A European import, WearMoi was started in 1992 by a husband/wife team - both former professional dancers.

Excellent for partnering and performance, the wide waistband WearMoi features a 3" "soft touch" uncovered elastic full circumference waistband and a stretchable thong.  

Wearing tights without a shirt and don't want your dance belt to show?  Then the WearMoi narrow waistband is a good alternative.  Like its wide waist cousin, it's designed to hide and make you look good in tights.  The 1½" "full circumference waistband doesn't provide any back support, so choose the wide waistband model if you're doing partner lifts.

WearMoi's pouch features a substantial foam cup middle layer that smooths out anatomical detail and provides minor impact protection.  It creates an idealized 'Ken Doll' large round mound look in tights.

91% cotton/9% Elastene (Spandex)

WearMoi USA website & online store

Online retailer boysdancetoo advertises that WearMoi is "The best dance belt available.  The wide elastic band is outrageously soft. The cup has a soft interlining padding that provides support, comfort and a good look under tights.  The thong is thin, flexible and as comfortable as a men’s thong can get."

 COMFORT NOTE: The T-shaped seam near the bottom of the pouch can be incredibly stiff and annoying if it ends up between your legs right at the perineum.    It joins far too many pieces of fabric and inner-lining to smoothly sit without rubbing.  Adjusting it by pulling the whole pouch forward moves the seam out of the danger zone.  Once done this dance belt qualifies as one of the most comfortable.

 


The pouch is also right on the cusp of being too small, without enough vertical room to accommodate an up-facing penis.  I'm going to make an exception to my policy of illustrating this website with mannequins to illustrate how a penis can protrude above the pouch, into the waistband.  The picture is from a WearMoi's online catalog, so presumably they feel this is acceptable positioning.  If I was wearing it that way, I'd complain.


 





I frequently cut labels out of dancewear.  For instance, MStevens tights have one that is mid way down the rear seam.  If you don't remove it, it tickles!  

But this label placement is even worse - something important goes there.  A pair of sharp scissors solves the problem.

Part 2 of Asher Taylor-Dawson’s review of the WearMoi 206

Here is what others have said in online store reviews about WearMoi:

“PDXdance", a professional dancer says it’s better than others:     I'm still on the fence about the fit of this particular dance belt - it definitely sits low on the waist, but that can give some unflattering lines under tights/unitards etc. The elastic is also quite stretchy compared to others, so I'm curious to see how long it will hold up. It is quite comfortable when everything is in place, but it doesn't offer much coverage so it can take time to get things situated.  The padding in the front does a MUCH better job than the M.Stevens does of disguising what it needs to - and I feel that that is important.

Dora tried several brands getting her son into his first thong:     My 11 year old son was miserable when his [thankfully male] dance teacher told him, it was time to switch from a “full-seat” to a "thong" dance belt… He was in tears when he first tried one on because it was so uncomfortable. He couldn't get through his 1.5 hour class wearing one, so he had to change back into his old dance belt half-way through.  I bought him every style dance belt the site offers in hopes of finding one that would be okay… Unfortunately, there’s no "magic bullet" - you just have to get used to wearing it… After two weeks, I am happy to say my son has totally gotten used to wearing his dance belt and sometimes even forgets to take it off after class!!! [Best advice: don’t try to avoid the inevitable…Put the thong in your butt to start, because it’s gonna end up there anyway, and that way you can position it where it fits best] He wears all of the belts - none of them fit badly - but says this style is his favorite.
