General Information

This leotard was manufactured by Capezio and was first introduction for sales at Amazon.com in Oct 2004. As manufacturer’s introduction, the product features soft, breathable, quick-drying, excellent stretching fabric, multiple color choice and it can be well used for Team Basics, dance, costuming and team cheer.

The material

This leotard is made of 90% Nylon, 10% Spandex or 100% Nylon (may vary).

Commonly, nylon is a synthetic fabric that has excellent toughness, abrasion resistance, and is easy to wash. Nylon garment product features characteristics such as smooth, soft, lightweight and high resilience. However, unlike cotton (such as: Capezio Women’s Classic Short Sleeve Leotard), the nylon drawbacks are poor heat resistance and poor absorption to sweat thus people may feel uncomfortable to wear this leotard in hot conditions (hot weather, inner home). Moreover, the nylon fiber is easy to be static (like human hair) in rubbing condition or humidity, which involved itchiness to skin in some cases. Though this material makes this leotard easy to dry, it is recommended to use electric iron after drip-drying to avoid static and wrinkle.

Spandex (or Elastane) is an elastic polyurethane material. It is suitably added (10%) to this leotard so that it has more breaking length and better fitting to body. You can wash this cotton-blend leotard in cold water or with machine without problem. Nevertheless, cleaning with the delicate cycle on the washer helps prevent leotard from shrinking better.

The design

This bodice leotard has classical designs with no colorful patterns or diamantes. However, it is available in large range of sizes and colors for different choices. Scoop front, scoop back and a traditional lower ballet leg line make dancer confident to stand out. In addition, this leotard has a wide strap that gives a supportive solution of nipple coverage, especially in sudden movements some dancers could feel protected. However, you should look for a standard bra for better protection in your performance (because Capezio does not sew it into this leotard to cut off the price) unless you aim for a “sexy art” in the photography studio. Bonus downside: for lazy people, buying this leotard means they have more things to wash.
