What makes a showgirl? How do you know whether you are watching a showgirl or another type of performer? Do you know what makes a quality showgirl? Well, here are some helpful pointers.
The one thing you need to keep in mind about all showgirls is that by definition, they are not sexual objects. They do not perform sexual acts or movements that should provoke arousal from male audiences. They are meant to be wholesome and fully-clothed at all times. Do not mistake showgirls for topless waitresses, topless dancers, escorts or strippers. While you may be led to believe that showgirls can be interchangeable with all of these terms (and more) do not be fooled. That is a misconception born from laziness and complacency. A stripper is a stripper. A topless waitress is a topless waitress in Brisbane. A showgirl is a showgirl. As long as you know how to distinguish each type of employee, at least they will appreciate the effort.
Showgirls are typically very tall. Well, tall for females anyway. You should not be surprised to see showgirls that at least could stand toe to toe with you. At the very least, they will be just under your chin. Statuesque showgirls are a common occurrence no matter where you go. In fact, it has been stated that the shortest a professional showgirl can be is five feet, 8 inches. That is very significant — and that is the new minimum, possibly because it became harder to find women taller than that on a regular basis. The old minimum height used to be five feet, ten inches. When you consider that your typical school girl hovers around the five fee, four inches and five feet, six inches mark, that becomes more important. Showgirl businesses are always searching for the women that can be a man’s height equal.
Of course, the ideal showgirl figure — when taking into consideration the height requirements — should not be all in the upper body and comparatively little below. No, if anything long legs are an absolute must. The typical male gaze is evidence of this, no matter how uncomfortable it can make the target. You always start at the legs — when you’re not starting at the backside — and work your way up. If you are gazing for several seconds and still seeing leg, you know you have a showgirl candidate in front of you. At the very least, she will deliver a swift and painful kick to any number of sensitive parts of your body if she feels affronted. The benefit of long legs from a showgirl perspective is that they emphasise the costumes. You would be amazed at how much more dazzling a costume can be when combined with legs that could be taller than your upper body.
Showgirls are still very much a respectable part of society. You now know part of what makes a good one.
