As someone who is short (5"2') the beledi is the perfect length for me! It's slinky, shiny and comfortable. I recommend sizing up if you are unsure about sizes. The material clings to you so sizing up doesn't affect the wear and shape. I danced in this without any "rude parts" showing as the slits are cut are the perfect height. Now I also have an amazing going out dress-- score!!

I Just received my Beledi dress and tried it on. I happened to pass my husband and his jaw dropped. He couldn't believe this gorgeous dress was "just for Bellydance!" He said, "come Saturday night, we are going out and you are wearing that dress!" The fit is fantastic and the fabric is buttery soft. This Dress is so stunning and comfortable, I may never take it off!

Talk about feeling like an absolute goddess! This dress hugs me in all of the right places and accentuates curves. The fabric feels like heaven. I have a new "little black dress" but with some flair <3

Everything about this dress works. The fabric is amazing: stretchy, soft and gorgeous. The dress is super flattering even on my 5'2" curves. It's perfect for stage, markets and haflas on its own or with harem pants or a skirt underneath. It'd be equally awesome for a night on the town. I'm in love!

The silhouette of the Beledi is ultra hotness. I'm a lady who enjoys showing off my shoulders as well as favoring elbow-length sleeves, and the Beledi neckline is deeeeelish. Love layering it over the maxi skirt for a longer look as well. It's not sheer at all as I'm happy to go topless underneath too thanks to its supersoftness. Please keep this design a MeloStandard! Dreaming of future color and fauxssuit opportunities... <3
