The costumes of the Bharatnatyam dancer are gorgeous. The costume consists of a dhoti for both male and female dancers. It is usually of richly embroidered needlework or shimmering silk or satin. It fits easily above the ankles and is pleated along the legs, which it protects. Over the dhoti, in the middle, is a pleated or frilled cloth hanging from the waist to perhaps the knees. The upper part of the male dancers body remains bare save for a necklace Women wear a tight fitting choli of the same colour and material as the dhoti.

Dance costumes are colourful and attractive.The costumes vary with the dance and region.We can see light coloured costumes as well as very bright with highly ornamented costumes.In mohiniyattam,thiruvathira,margamkali etc only light colours like white,offwhite,cream colors are used.Bright colours are seen in ritual dances also,mostly red,orange green are used.

Dance costumes are the part of the dance. These costumes are colourfull and different for different places as per their localised dresses and also as per the require,ment of dancer. Sometimes costumes also gives the idea of the character dancer is playing.
