How to choose a leotard?
First decide in choosing fabrics of the leotard. In our shop there are leotards made of different fabrics: cotton, lycra, microfiber and velvet lycra.
Lycra leotard made of synthetic material. The lycra material stretches well and sits well on the figure. It shines a little bit and looks bright.
Cotton leotard made from a natural material with a small % of Lycra for stretch. So cotton leotard also sits very well on figure and it is very soft. It is a pleasure to feel cotton on the body.
Leotard made of microfiber gives the product extraordinary lightness. Microfiber leotard keeps warmth and has another advantage: the liquid does not penetrate into microfiber threads and therefore sweat stains are invisible on the leotard. Microfiber leotard does not fade after washing and fast drying.

If a girl does rhythmic gymnastics, for the first year when she is 3-4 years old, you can buy a leotard with a skirt. Tights without foot with or tights with a hole in the heel can be worn under the leotard. (Advised not to wear pantyhose for trainings because a gymnast can slip. Naked foot or heel will help to avoid this). You can wear leggings or shorts over the leotard.
For the second year of practice, when gymnast begins to learn more complex elements of gymnastics, the skirt can interfere. Therefore it is recommended to buy a leotard without any skirts and wear it with tights, shorts or leggings. If cold, tights without fot or without heel can be put under the shorts.
If a girl does artistic gymnastics, acrobatics, trampoline, the skirt can interfere, so it is better to purchase leotard without skirts. Any leotard can be fitted: long sleeve, short sleeve, straps or wide straps. Usually shorts or long tights are put over the leotard.
It is important to wear a sports uniform for any sports training or dancing. Wearing sports form gives a serious attitude to training. The girl looks toned and feels a real athlete or dancer.
