Announcement   Belli Phat is the unique belly dance costume company run by Bellatrix Ali of Kansas City. From headdresses to bra bases to pantaloons, I've got ya covered (or not covered, if that's what you prefer!). ALL SIZES & SEXES WELCOME!! Because I ardently believe that you don't have to be a size 6 to bellydance, and you don't need to have the "perfect" body to look amazing while doing it!

In addition to the items listed here, we also offer a variety of custom services on a case-by-case basis. Everything from turkish vests to showgirl headdresses to decorated bellydance bras. As these items can vary on cost, depending on the fabric/materials, and are very specialized with sizing, we like to find out the customer's needs first, then we'll post a "special order" for the item. If you have any questions about these or any other items that may tickle your fancy, please don't hesitate to drop us a line! We also accept Alchemy requests! :)

These pants are great! They are so comfortable and I've been wearing them almost everyday. I'll definitely get more in the future.

About

Everybody can belly dance, and every BODY can look amazing while doing it!!

When I started belly dancing, I noticed that there weren't a lot of costume options out there for plus-sized dancers (which is the category I squarely fell into). And the options that were out there still had to be heavily altered in order to fit my specific proportions well -- afterall, when you're onstage performing you want to look and FEEL your best!

Very frustrated with the market, I decided to teach myself how to sew & started making my own costume pieces. Almost immediately, I had other dancers (esp plus-sized dancers) asking where I got my costume items. When I told them that I made them, they excitedly asked if I would make things for them. "Oh, no, I'm not a professional seamstress", I'd reply. In the meantime, I had started sewing for my other troupe members as well -- which was great, as they were all different body shapes, so I got to learn how to fit garments & make patterns/pattern alterations. I loved learning new techniques!

Finally, after a few years of people asking me to make costume items for them, I felt comfortable enough with my skills to be able to say YES! And that was over six years ago... Now, Belli Phat is a business that I am pleased helps dancers *around the world* find costume pieces that they cannot find anywhere else -- and that, at times, make them feel more beautiful than they have ever felt. I cherish being a part of someone else's dance journey.

Belli Phat is the belly dance costume company run by BellatrixAli out of Kansas City. We are the place to get all of your plus-sized belly dance needs -- from assuit bras to megaloons, we've got ya covered! (...or not covered, if that's what you prefer!) Because we feel that you don't have to be a size 6 to belly dance, and you shouldn't have to have the "perfect" body to look amazing while doing it!

Accepted payment methods

Payment
We accept Paypal (credit cards and checking account payments) & payments via money order at this time. As per Etsy policy, payment must be made at the time that the transaction is created. If you are purchasing with a money order, please let me at the time of purchase so that I know that is your intent. We reserve the right to cancel an order for non-payment & relist the item.

Orders will be shipped according to the timelines outlined below, and only after payment has been received & cleared. Custom orders will begin to be worked on once payment has been received & cleared.
Shipping
All ready-made items will be shipped in 3-5 business days of receiving a cleared payment.

CUSTOM-MADE items (pantaloons, entaris & hair accessories) will be shipped in 3-4 weeks of receiving a cleared payment, receipt of any necessary measurements, and selection of any fabric/materials. In other words, if it takes 2 weeks for me to receive your measurements or for a decision on fabric to be made, the 3-4 week turn-around time doesn't apply until after all of that is done.

CUSTOM-MADE BRAS & BELT BASES will be shipped in 4-6 weeks of receiving payment, receiving any necessary measurements, receiving any bra/fabric items shipped from the customer, and selection of fabric/materials desired.

If more than one CUSTOM-MADE item is purchased at the same time, one week per additional item is added to the timeline.

All shipping costs listed with an item are for USPS First Class Mail or Priority Mail (determined by weight) with insurance (usually takes 2-5 days for arrival after item is shipped within the US). Items are shipped with insurance to protect both buyer & seller in the event that the item is damaged or lost during shipment, as well as to provide a tracking number to locate & track the package/item. Shipping costs also include handling & packaging (besides just straight postage costs), but any shipping overages of more than $1.00 will be refunded after shipping.

If you want/need it sooner than above time frame(s), please email for timeline confirmation and for a shipping/rush fee quote PRIOR to purchasing your item. We will do our best to accommodate your needs along with any other current orders that we may have. Depending on the time frame, orders needed sooner than the specified time frame may be charged a RUSH handling fee of 30% in addition to the higher postage costs & depends entirely on schedule availability.
Refunds and Exchanges
If there are any issues with your item, please notify me within 5 business days (ie, one week) of receiving your purchase (determined by the "delivery date" on your mailing/USPS tracking number) & I will do my best to accomodate any issues that you may have.

Returned items may be subject to a restocking fee. Any refunds given will be done so in the manner in which payment was received and only upon receipt of the returned item in its original condition. As is standard with most online businesses, any return postage will be the responsibility of the buyer (unless it is being returned due to my error), and the original postage charges will not be refunded.

I reserve the right to re-sell any item which has been returned, including custom-made items.
Additional policies and FAQs
All sales to MISSOURI residents will be subject to a 5.3% Sales tax, per state regulations.

Most items are custom-made to order, so please keep in mind that we will be contacting you for needed measurements and the timely-ness of your item relies upon receiving those measurements from you as soon as possible. The 3 or 4-week outshipment timeframe for custom orders applies *after* we receive payment & all of the information required for your item(s).

If a SPECIAL ORDER item is listed for you, payment for that listing must be received within one week of the listing date or the listing will be removed. Any discounts, time frame(s) and/or services offered/promised in that Special Order listing will expire at the time that the listing is removed.
