  1. Thank you, I'm starting to feel a bit more confident. I didn't know about toe spacers either πŸ˜† (complete novice)!!! I think making a note and going back to the shop was what I was thinking, I don't think I'd be confident to order online, I want to get a good fit for DD. Thanks for your help, much appreciated πŸ˜€
  2. It's nice to hear fitter was genuine and wanted to fit the best shoe not just make a sale. I've had a chat with DD and she is more aware that it might take several attempts. Thank you for your advice πŸ˜€
  3. Thank you. I still feel really lost but can now explain to DD that it might not be as simple as going to one fitting and getting the perfect shoe. DD is desperate to get shoes before classes restart after summer πŸ˜” If DD goes to a fitting can I take a note of their recommendations and order later? Or is it better to take the shoe she tried during the fitting? Are the measurements pretty specific to that make, shape and size of shoe and ordering later will still get DD the same shoe? Does the fitting cost extra? I've also seen different advice about what to wear: should DD wear ballet tights or not?, should DD have padding or toe protectors before fitting? πŸ˜€
  4. Thanks for your reply. I think looking online has also added to my confusion. I'm now thinking it may take more than one fitting in one shop 😏 I am now going to try and find shops around Glasgow and Edinburgh that we can visit during our stay. Your advice has been really helpful. Thank you πŸ˜€
  5. Thank you, I think holding back with sewing is a brilliant idea (I have no idea how this is done) and will show DD this post to reassure that this is what others do. Your advice is much appreciated πŸ˜€
  6. Thank you, this is fabulous advice. I know DD will want to get a pair during our visit as we are making the trip especially as don't live anywhere near. I am now wondering if I should make several appointments at different fitters? Would this work?
  7. Thank you, and I will try phoning Edinburgh tomorrow. Much appreciated ☺️
  8. Thank you for your reply. ☺️ I have read through some posts but feel like it's written in a different language, does every parent feel like this at the beginning? Feel rather lost πŸ˜•
  9. Hello all, Please can I draw on your knowledge and experience. DD is to have first fitting for pointe shoes and I am totally ignorant as to how this works and where it is best to go in and around Glasgow. Are some places better than others and how do I know? Thanks in advance
