    To wipe your bitter tears away as you come to realize that the world is laughing at you for wearing the matching costume.

    Actually, it's probably not for belly dancing. It's probably for folk dancing. In some of the middle eastern folk dances, the dancers "twirl hankies"....Although, usually they are not decorated with this many sequins.....

    I have seen this in Turkish Caberet costumes and as a matter of fact have inherited some costumes that came with the "hankies"...the "hankie" is folded and placed at the hip to create a focal point when accenting hip movements. Some of the ones I got were a bit bigger in size, perhaps it was used not only as a hip accent, but a modesty piece as many skirts' slit came "way up there".
