  1. Hello everyone, For my uni dissertation, I am trying to create a leotard that has support for dancers with larger bust, and to try and enable them to be fully supported without having to wear anything else underneath. I would be really greatful if anyone could fill out my short questionaire, it should take less than 5 minutes. It would be great to get the opinions of those dancer with bigger busts, but even if you don't, it would still be great to get your opinions. I really appreciate any help. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdxwnKu6ysjuH6PT9cr0cbZU1KMqWpoypLn0wbJ6oLFGRkqGw/viewform?usp=sf_link
  2. Hi dancers, I wanted to know whether I'm not alone... I've been ballet dancing for about 7 years now and absolutely love it. I regularly wear leotards to classes but find that they are really thin and don't give me much support/cover me around the breast area. So sometimes I wear sports bras to give me the extra coverage. But then the sports bra ruins the whole style of leotards (especially low backs, mesh, camisole thin straps). I've tried some skin covered innerwear from Bloch and Capezio but don't think they cut it, it's still thin enough that you can still see my nipples protrude!? Does anyone else relate?
  3. Can anyone recommend a bra that doesn't show under a leotard? My 12 year old dd is very self-conscious and needs a bra to wear under her black leotard. The leotard has quite thick straps but her bra straps show at the back and also the leotard is quite low cut meaning a bit of the bra cup shows at the front. Any recommendations please?
  4. My 16 years old daughter is tiny.. she’s a size 4 but has an F cup bust. She does vocational ballet, ballet, tap, modern, contemporary and national. She really struggles to find supportive Dancewear and cannot wear a bra that can be seen. Her teachers also prefer high leg leotards. She could wear a S or Xs leotard but her chest does not fit in I am having to buy an M and gave it taken in and even that does not support her bust . Can anyone suggest a leotard that isn’t low leg that would support her? She can wear black for some lessons but is required to wear pink/raspberry / fuschia for vocational work

    Hi, DD's teacher has just announced a new uniform for older girls. Frustratingly it has been designed as a fait accompli... And is low back and high leg! Not so good for a fully mature young woman (E cup). She has been wearing crop tops and sports bras, but has been told off as these are not considered subtle enough. Before I go out a spend yet more money on what may or may not be suitable support, does anyone here have recommendations on subtle, nude (?) support undergarment/bra. Goodness knows what will happen when exam time comes. :-( heeeelp!!!
  6. DD (19) is struggling with audition wear which she can wear a bra under. She is 2nd year and college say no visible bras - but it can be street wear she just needs to be able to dance in it She loves this https://www.prettylittlething.com/carlita-green-lace-choker-plunge-thong-bodysuit.html but it has a low back Any recommendations?
  7. [quote name="Pas de Quatre" post="91696" timestamp="1399742899 However I am pleased to see that nearly all Vocational schools now have cap sleeve or vest top leotards available as part of the uniform, which allows a bra to be worn. However, bras are not allowed to be worn - something that I keep having discussions with my DD about as I think all the girls should be wearing sports bras in their day to day classes. Even if relatively small up top, it can still stretch the ligaments and may cause issues in later years. She is adamant that they are not allowed to wear bras of any description and some of the girls are quite well developed!
