How to Pick the Perfect Leotard

Posted by Claudia Dean on

When it comes to ballet, there’s no denying that the real MVP is our leotard. Not only do they provide freedom of movement to give us an optimal range of motion and mobility, but most importantly a good fitting leotard will give you confidence - which is the one thing in ballet that can’t be taught! 

With so many different styles to choose from, it can be hard knowing which one is right for you and your body, so let me break down a few of my favourite styles so you can find your perfect fit. 

Universally Flattering 

The Odette is one of our bestselling leotards - and with very good reason. One of the best features of this leotard is the sweetheart pleated neckline, which is flattering on all body types. The support levels of this leotard are completely customisable thanks to the adjustable straps (which are rose gold of course) so you feel confident and secure knowing nothing will accidentally slip out. What’s more? The Odette leotard comes in a whole host of different colours, whether you’re a pink or pattern type of girlie.

More Support 

Featuring all the same high performance details of our Odette leotard, our Aurora just has thicker straps, which offers a little bit more support through the upper body. The Aurora features the signature CD high cut leg lines, which elongates the look of your leg to give you killer extensions! Our Aurora leotards come in a whole host of incredible colours, including a range of limited edition colours. I’m absolutely loving the Limited Edition Pineapple shade for summer.

More Coverage 

If you prefer a little more coverage (you might even have a bigger bust) our Clara Leotard is perfect! This style features a flattering cap sleeve, love heart mesh neckline for modest coverage the mid scoop back makes it one of our most comfortable leotards, which flatters every dancer's body!

Elongate Your Torso

If you’re a little more on the petite side, one of the easiest ways to elongate the look of your torso and in turn your height is with high necklines as featured in our Giselle Leotards. The high boat neckline provides additional coverage at the front, but has an eye-catching deep square back (as they say - business in the front, party in the back). Giselle is a feminine cut with elongating seams and high cut leg line.
