Spectacular Dancewear, that you can wear a bra under

Recommended Posts

That one would be really difficult as it's also low at the sides so no chance of a bra or any support!

It's more traditional than her choice but have you looked on the eleve website? You can customise the materials so could stand out at audition and some styles would be possible with a bra http://www.elevedancewear.com

Eleve leos are absolutely gorgeous. Just be careful of the Post Office and Customs whacking on about £12 in addition to the cost - import tax plus a hefty PO "handling fee". :(

the handling fee that RM / PFW  charge is  one of the smaller ones and a lot smaller than if you  got a customs agent  to do it ... 

 

the only semi legitimate way to avoid it  especially from the US  ( where postal offences are federal felonies and the USPS has it's own  police force to enforce ) is if you have a firend / family member  in the US /NAFTA  who can  get it delivered  to them repackage it and send it as a gift ...

I have ordered a custom leotard from LaBella dancewear before and managed to avoid any customs / RM charges. Not sure if that was down to luck or because their prices are a bit cheaper than Eleve (especially if you catch a promotion) and so the value of the goods imported was lower.

 

In any event, I love the leotard I ordered so thought I'd share the link.

you may have scraped under the VAT thresholds  if it was a single leotard, but that is unlikely  you may have been lucky  or  got away with it becasue it was under  the 39 gbp threshold rather than  the 15 gbp threshold ,   a single leaotrd would be unlikely to hit the threshold for duty  unlike custom costumes etc ...

I've bought a couple of pairs of pointe shoes from online dance stores in the States before; brands you can't get anywhere else. On every occasion the import charges cost me more than the shoes. [Had to have them though !! .]

  the  handling fees  are the killer on  small purchases  as the handling fee from the courier acting as customs agent is the same whether it;s oen item or  a box full

Slightly curious as to what she is auditioning for and needing the added expense of a 'special' leotard if she is in her 2nd year. is this for within the college? Or getting prepared for graduation year?

It's for Move it - Performers do a display & it's hard to get noticed (if you aren't a third year)

 

TBH it's a long shot but pantomime auditions start in May so it won't be wasted ;)

 

Edited to add - but realistically she will need this sort of leaotard for a good few years; so sites to look on are great

Actually the second one is similar to what she bought ;) hopefully she will look good in white, her skin will be quite a contrast

 

She would be in costume on stage....she just needs to be good enough :rolleyes:

Thanks Fizz, I remember our first visit to Move-it & I never imagined she'd be going to perform this year

Congratulations to your DD Katymac, and thank you for sharing the performance.  I watched it live at move it 2 years ago and it was lovely to see it again.
