    Taffeta. Gotta have layers upon layers of taffeta. And the old-school sequins on the bodice. Oh, I wish I could draw! :lol:

    No kidding! I could easily catch an earring, shoe, lead's shoe in that within a minute. How do those ballgowns hide sweat? I'm sure you ballroom dancers work up a pretty good sweat during your routines. Ther is NO WAY I could ever wear anything like chiffon, not to mention those beautiful, light colors, forfear my sweat marks would show! :oops:

    Chiffon is relegated to skirts, so that isn't a problem sweat-wise. And the dresses are lined with the built-in leotard, so that helps too. If you look, a lot of the dresses are sleeveless or have mesh sleeves, so that mitigates the problem.

    I think I'd still manage to soak one of those with sweat... :oops:

    I forgot to mention -- in the US at least, they chill the ballroom down to practically meat-locker temperatures :) That helps a LOT with the sweating problems, too. Also, when you're competing, you're really only dancing for at most 7 1/2 minutes at a time, so although you do work up a sweat it doesn't have a lot of time to soak into your clothes -- and there are sometimes stacks of "sweat towels" around so you can blot yourself (or stick the towel down your dress and absorb what's there, if needed).

    That makes much more sense! AT those bloddy salsa clubs, it's pretty warm to begin with(a lot of people don't dance, but choose to sit around drinking and schmoozing. Those people are the cash cows for the clubs, so we can't have THEM being uncomfortable, can we?!). One can easily look like something the cat dragged in after 30 minutes or so of salsa...
