Sounds like an interesting article Littlesue, must try and track that down online.

Chrisanne are selling off a few old Strictly costumes. Here's Flavia's sparkly gym knickers from 2009 (she danced with Craig Kelly) a snip at just £1145

And DSI have a number of this years' dresses up for sale already. Up close, Chelsee's pink ballroom gown is lovely.

Hee hee! Just also saw the blue dress from the Aviva advert on DSI.

Sorry to go off on a tangent!

oooh we have a dedicated sub thread! How special is this Big%20smile

Yep, I clocked the waist measurements on those dresses! Mind you, there is always a little stretch in the costumes, they can give up to about two inches or so owing to the lycra content. A bit like those M&S Egg tights we all wore in the 90's - murder to get into but they sucked your wobbly bits in a treat!

Looking at some of the latin dreses on DSI and I thought it interesting to see that Alex's and Holly's are displayed without belts. I think they both look better without and wonder why they were added in the first place.  Unless both ladies lost weight between the last fitting and show night? This might mean that belts were added to stop the dresses from gaping. It does explain why I thought Alex's lace up belt looked sloppy at the back - it wasn't part of the original design and was clearly an add on.
