Melaya Leff (or Luff) is a light-hearted dance from Alexandria. Although it looks like (and is!) fun, it's actually quite challenging because the melaya is so much bigger and heavier than a veil. A melaya is similar in length (or slightly shorter) than a belly dance veil, but it's much wider - an authentic one should reach from your shoulder right down to the floor.
If you're looking for a short, flirty Melaya Luff dress - sorry, I'm still trying to find a reliable supplier. Keep your fingers crossed!
