  1. Hello Ballet Dancers, Do you have any issues with your leotards? If you have a spare moment of 7-minutes, please partake in my survey about ballet leotards and dancers preference. I am an adult dancer and also a student taking a Technical Apparel Design program. This survey is for my school project. The requirements is for ballet dancers 18+ age (due to school requirements). I would appreciate the help so much! https://www.surveymonkey.ca/r/jlgazelle
  2. A query for those of you who are avid adult ballet dancers and/or lovers of dancewear! I'm sure this has been asked many times but I did a quick search and couldn't find the answer... My adult ballet class only ever seem to be able to get black dancewear and the class looks like a funeral gathering! They're all sick of it and would love to be able to get leotards and skirts that fit the average womanly figure (size 12/ 14/ 16/ 18) with bust support or that can be worn with a bra. I'd also be interested in a long-ish wrap skirt that actually wraps around my post-lockdown tummy! All
  3. I'm very sad that the day has come where I have grown out of some of my favourite leotards, but hoping they will find a happy new home. All are in very good condition and have a high cut leg line. Photographs available on request.

  4. 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/1FAIpQLSdxwnKu6y

  6. My DD is starting to develop and the leotards she has are fairly unforgiving. Can anyone please recommend leotards that are sufficiently lined in the chest area to prevent embarrassment?
  7. I have two leotards for sale: Black Capezio leotard size Child Medium. Style CC101 https://www.capezioeurope.com/princess-camisole-leotard Pale pink Mirella leotard size 8-10 years.

  8. DD needs a leotard for a Cecchetti competition - I know from another mum that there are strict rules about leotards but last time she was in a group so I just put her in what everyone else was wearing and didn’t have to worry. Is there a list of the rules, or the right type of leotards? From memory it was tank style, quite high necked, with a belt - is that what I need to look for? Do they have rules on colours? I’d be really grateful if anyone can point me to a list of the rules or of the allowed leotards, googling has not been much help.

  10. Central School of Ballet first and second year leotards for sale in good condition. Please message me for further details! 😊
  11. Has anybody of you experience in how So Danca leotards run in comparison to the brands Ballet Rosa, Wearmoi, Repetto, Capezio or Grishko? According to the size charts, I´d need size 2A for children in width, but size PA in length. However, that is not always true, in Ballet Rosa, for example, size 12 years fits perfect although it should be too short as well...
  12. Hello, i wonder if anyone has any recommendations for leotards more flattering for larger dancers? I’m an overweight student with an exam soon. I’m just looking for something to cover me up a bit more than the RAD Faith leotard that is the standard for my school - it just sits too low for my personal preference. Thank you xx
  13. 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 voca
  14. Hi, looking for some advice. My dd is a JA with RBS she has an audition with elmhurst coming up for full time training. Just wondering what she should wear should she wear her JA uniform or not? Thanks 😄

  16. Would any of you lovely people be able to recommend leotard brands and sizes for me? I’m expecting this to be a bit of a ‘how long is a piece of string’ question but ideally i’d like to buy online rather than traipsing into the city to try loads on. My daughter is 8 (almost 9) but small for her age (usually age below in clothes). She’s petite but leotards are often too short in the body so we either end up with a baggy bum and straps, or looking lovely in the body but constantly going up her bum! 😬 She’s starting an associates class in September (there’s no fixed unifo
  17. Does anyone have any ideas what sort of leotard styles and colours would be preferable for a girl auditioning for a year 7 place at both WL and Elmhurst ? I had chosen a burgandy inter mezzo leotard but her JA teachers isn't too keen . I now have the choice of sky blue or raspberry .
  18. I have read lots of posts about buying and selling on of degas leotards and wondered what is it that makes them so special. DD wears lots of different brands, some nicer/more flattering than others, DD particularly likes high legged designs. DD starts senior associates in September and kit list just says black leotard (I haven’t actually read properly, just skimmed it so I might have this wrong) but assuming haven’t misunderstood I was considering trying a degas, so I would be interested to hear thoughts on what sets Degas apart from other brands.
  19. Hi I’d like to buy my 12yr old DD a non regulation leotard for her upcoming 13th birthday as a surprise but she is petite (wears age 11 clothes or sz 4 in primark) and I’m not sure what size to buy her? There is less choice in the age 12 -14 sizes and I’m a little wary of buying too small with no growing room however I’m not sure if adult petite/ XS will be too big. Any advice would be much appreciated!
  20. I have 3 new leotards for sale. My daughter excitedly received them this Christmas as presents, took the labels off 2 of them to try on in the house and to her disappointment realised that they were too small. We couldn't return them as they had been posted by well-meaning relatives from abroad. So Danca cap sleeved lace leotard midnight blue (more like a deep blackberry purple) label (still attached) size 12-14 2A So Danca cap sleeved lace leotard back label size 12-14 2A Claudia Dean (Australia) Juliet leotard midnight black child XL (same size as leotards above) They do
  21. Can anyone recommend any nice leotards suitable for auditions? My eldest DD has a few workshops coming up and is after some new dancewear. She's a ladies small and has a gorgeous hourglass figure with quite a large bust (she's incredibly self concious). She doesn't feel comfortable in two piece sets so we're looking for leotards to suit her figure. She can't really do without a bra so the strappy back ones aren't ideal either. Are there any bras that can be recommended too? She's a 32dd so we struggle to find supportive ones for under dancewear.
  22. Hello everyone, I was wondering if anyone knew where I could purchase some pretty long sleeved leotards for my 14 year old dd. They need to be full arm length ,not 3/4. This is due to certain issues that we are faced with. I have found some some but they all tend to be very plain and not flattering which is not the quite the look my dd is going for. Thanks for any help anyone could give. BM13 xx

  24. Hi, where is the best place in the U.K. to buy these leotards?
  25. My daughter needs a Bloch cotton Lycra leotard, she's currently in a Roch Valley 9-10 shiny leotard. Do the cotton Lycra ones have as much give?
