MY recommended leotards

I thought it might be fun for me to share some of my FAVORITE leotards with you.

Dance Department Scoop Tank Leotard
$9.15 (Child) $10.95 (Adult)
My review: I got this leotard when I was 8 years old, I jumped from taking 2 hours per week, to taking 6 hours per week, so my mom decided to buy me a second leotard since I was taking ballet 3 time per week. We ordered a black, medium, child. I really liked it. It was very comfortable, and easy to move around in. It seemed a little small though, so I would recommend buying a size up. I don't know about the life span, because I only got to wear it for 6 months, then I moved and had to wear a light blue leotard.
I give it 4.5 out of 5 stars

Bloch Scoop front tank leotard
$10.50 (Child)
My Review: I got this leotard when I was 9 years old, I had moved up to Ballet 2, and I we had to wear burgundy\maroon. This was a nice leotard. The cotton gets a little scratchy after washing it twice a week for a year, but it holds up very nicely. Unfortunately, it is only sold in child sizes... So if you are 5' 7" like me, you can't get it. AGAIN, I don't know about the life span of this leotard because I only got to wear it for a year, then I changed schools, moved up to ballet 3, and wore navy blue.
I give it 4 out of 5 stars

Capezio Camisole Leotard w\ V back
$10.95 (Child) $13.95 (Adult)
Cotton\Lycra Spandex
My review: I got this leotard last year (when I was 11), in navy blue when I out grew my other navy blue leotard (WHICH WAS AN AWFUL LEOTARD). THIS IS MY FAVORITE LEOTARD EVER!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! Later that year, we had to get black camisole leotards for a dance concert. I got the same leotard (only black), and we ordered with two friends. They both complained about the seam at the top pressing into there spine and hurting, but I haven't had that problem at all. I (AGAIN) don't know about the life span, because I only wore it for the navy leotard for one year. And the black one for a show, an audition, and helping out with Creative Movement for 4 months, but I will be wearing the black one again next year since I moved up to ballet 4!
I give it 5 out of 5 stars!

You can find, and order all three of these leotards at Discount Dance Supply.
