1. Baby Wipes!
They must be unscented. Everything that you use to wipe or wash your cookie with should be unscented.
If you get the white deodorant stains on your bra or bikini top–they WILL glow in the dark BUT, if you have baby wipes–you can wipe them right off! If your makeup is messy, smudged, or running…baby wipes can save your face! Baby wipes will save your life as an exotic dancer. You will sweat a lot after dancing so you need to have baby wipes to clean yourself up and keep yourself smelling fresh in all cracks and crevices.
Also, as I mentioned in my Pros and Cons list, customers love to lick us dancers. Baby wipes will help soothe the disgusting feeling and make you feel a little less dirty.
As a dancer, you should always, always have deodorant in your locker but I never do. WHY?! Baby wipes help me when I forget but they’re just not as effective as deodorant.
3. Back-Up Heels
You need another pair of dancing heels in your locker! Heels break easily and you don’t want to go home just because your heel broke–you’ll want to stay so you can make more money for a new pair of heels! My heels have broke on the job too many times to count but I’ve always had my uncomfortable back-up pair.
4. Garter or Money Bag
Personally, I think if you carry a backpack or purse, you’re ruining your look. I always keep my money in a garter (they’re not exactly the same as the wedding ones, they’re dancer ones, lol) around my ankle otherwise I’d have a small wallet that I could carry around my wrist or a clutch I could hold in my hand or under my armpit. You need something to put your money in. You can’t just carry it around all night or go into the dressing room to put it away every time.
5. 1 Extra Outfit
Maybe it’s just me but I need every single one of my outfits with me. I like to have options. Some girls bring one outfit for the night but I’m sure the smart ones have at least one extra outfit. Accidents happen. Drinks spill, too many girls are wearing the same color, fabric tears, etc.
