Showgirls are one of the most iconic representations of Las Vegas and have helped make our entertainment industry what it is today. The statuesque beauties needed only to parade their elaborate costumes around the stage. With ornate headpieces and hats, the costumes may have looked glamorous but were very heavy, some as much as 70 lbs, and over time caused neck and back problems. Not to mention what the high heels did to your feet.
The costumes aren’t as heavy as they used to be but showgirls of today don’t only parade the outfits around the stage, they are expected to be dancers as well.
