                                           Don’t be this guy!

While some cosplayers say “nothing comes between me and my spandex”,  pictures such as this are the inevitable result.  Skintight spandex superhero costumes look lumpy with normal underwear and even worse with nothing beneath.  There’s a lot of suspect information online about what you should wear under a spandex costume.  Trust me, a sports cup isn’t the best call (unless a prominent male bulge is part of the look of the costume).

Dance belts set the Gold Standard for male bulge control.  Unlike any alternative, they were designed to be worn under tights.  Wearing anything else is a compromise.

Many guys buy their first dance belt to wear under a costume but are concerned they won’t enjoy the party because they’ve got a thong stuck up their butt.  It’s OK - just because you want some bulge control and smoothing doesn’t necessarily mean you want to deal with a professional ballet grade dance belt’s iron grip designed to keep your genitals safe performing an Entrechat six.

Fortunately, not all dance belts are created equal.  
- If you want the ultimate smooth look & no-shift support, consider a relatively comfortable pro grade dance belt such as the Body Wrappers narrow waist ProBelt.  
- If you 
have zero dance belt wearing time, you might opt for a lighter duty model.  Any of the dance belts listed as NEW COMFORT KINGS would be a good choice.  Expect occasional adjustments will be needed.  

The Body Wrappers M003, the new Mariia “Kamil, and the super-lightweight M Stevens 1007 fit the bill for under-costume wear.  Pouches on these are soft and flexible.  You can expect a bit more ‘slippage’ that a tighter dance belt might prevent, but with greater comfort so you can enjoy your Con or Halloween party.

No matter which you select, read the “comfort" section of The Complete Guide to Dance Belts, then wear your new dance belt around for awhile to get used to it before attempting an all-day session at a Con.
