Flexers Light Professional Pink Ribbon

Style No: BH310LPP

OUR PRICE:$5.00
RETAIL VALUE:$6.00 (Save 17%)

This is the ribbon Bunheads has offered to dancers of all levels for many years. It is durable quality 7/8" single faced satin in Light Professional Pink. Many female dancers develop Achilles' Tendonitis due to the nature of pointe work. Too often, ribbons that are tied too tightly restrict the ankles and create excessive pressure on the Achilles' tendon. Flexers are designed to help alleviate the pressure that causes this irritation. They are snug and secure, yet stretch with the movement of the ankle. They enable the dancer to rise from plie, through demi-pointe and onto pointe with minimal constriction and no bagginess. Recommended by physical therapists, used by professionals.
4 ribbons per set.

Size: 2.5 yds. long.

  • Look pretty, bad quality

    by: MTdancer22 - 12/15/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I am usually a huge fan of bunheads, however I really didn't like these ribbons. The elastic is thinner then the ribbon, giving the ribbons a choppy look. The elastic is only sewn once across and has huge extra bits of elastic hanging out. Don't cut them though, because then the elastic will fray, which it did. I highly recommend Gaynor Mindens TLC ribbons. Much softer, stronger, and better quality.

  • They work well

    by: TabiBallerina - 05/06/2015

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I bought these at my local dance store for my first pair of pointe shoes and they work pretty well. They are a little hard to sew though. The color is a light pink and matches my Bloch Serenades fairly well, but my pointe shoes are a little darker color of pink. The only problem I've noticed with these is that the elastic is starting to fray a bit.

  • Nt practical at all

    by: Freckles - 12/10/2013

    Durability:

    Sewing these into the shoes was tricky because you have to calculate how much ribbon to leave so that the elastic part ends up in the right place (at the back of the foot/heel where it would work). My daughters' ended up on the side (over her ankle). On top of that, the part of the ribbon which is attached to the elastic shredded within a few dance classes. BIG waste of time.

  • They did their job...

    by: emily79 - 09/29/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    First of all: Don't get these if you wear Russian Pointe. The color looks ridiculously pink when it's on Russian Pointe shoes. I really don't like how the elastic is thinner that the ribbon so that there's a gap between the top of the ribbon and elastic. That didn't make sense... basically it's not smooth all the way across the top. The ribbon slips out of place all the time and never stays tucked into my shoes. Also I think the elastic isn't very comfortable, it's very thin and the stitching starts to come undone very easily. Overall I guess these ribbons did their job and helped prevent me from getting tendonitis, but I will not be getting them again.

  • I refuse to use any other ribbons

    by: DancingGoddess - 06/12/2013

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I'm one of those people who is always worried about tendon damage (one of my phobias in life is breaking a tendon). Regular ribbons either look loose if I tie them loose enough to not put pressure on my tendons, or are uncomfortable if they're tied tighter. The elastic pieces in these shoes take care of this problem. They do take a little longer to sew in because you need to make sure the elastic is in the right spot, but for the extra two minutes I won't complain. These ribbons match perfectly with Grishko pointes.

  • Perfect!!!!

    by: nycballerina - 12/26/2012

    I thought these ribbons were perfect. There really wasn't anything bad about these ribbons. The only thing that I was a bit annoyed with was the fact that the seam that was connecting the elastic and the ribbon was coming unraveled. Luckily, the pointe shoes died before the ribbon did. My friend has these ribbons, but not for their purpose. She says that if your regular pointe shoe ribbons always become lose while dancing, these ribbons will help them stay nice and tight. That may help anyone whose ribbons keep becoming lose. These ribbons are perfect for every dancer's needs, even though I don't use them anymore.

  • Nt Bad

    by: PrettyInPink - 12/12/2012

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    I got these because I do tend to tie my ribbons too tight. They feel amazing. The color really matches the three shoe brands I buy; Gamba, Grishko, and Russian Pointe.

    Work great for me - love them. Way more comfortable then regular ribbons, plus they don't gape at all. The only thing I would say that you need to be careful of is to not tie them too tight - I did that once and my ankle was really swollen by the end of class. It's really easy to forget that they can cut off circulation lol. Otherwise, get them - you'll be really glad you did.

  • Great but bad color

    by: Maya - 07/21/2009 - Texas,

    These ribbons are great! They have helped with my tendonitis so much! The only problem was that the color was too light for my pointe shoes.

  • Brilliant

    by: Elizabeth - 09/30/2007 - New England,

    Comfort:

    Durability:

    Why didn't I find these sooner? These ribbons are absolutely incredible. My ribbons before always looked beautiful en pointe, but when I was on demi-pointe or flat, they gapped and looked ugly. These ribbons totally eliminate that problem! They also make pointe work so much more comfortable - grand plie is so much better! No stress on my Achilles! The health benefits are wonderful. Prevents Achilles tendonitis, and who wouldn't want to avoid that? These should really be a requirement. They are so helpful. They're a bit trickier to sew on since you have to worry about the elastic lining up where you want it to, but it's well worth the extra 2 minutes that takes up. They match my Bloch Serenade MKIIs perfectly, and I don't think the elastic at the heel is at all unprofessional or ugly looking. Completely unnoticeable if you're more than 6 feet away. Love these, PLEASE get them! You'll look and feel so much better!

  • Best

    These are the best ribbons. You just tie them without stretching them and they will stretch, but you'll always have support and they never pull on you.

    Before I used these ribbons, I could not go on demi-pointe without crying out with pain. These ribbons give me support on pointe but also allow me to plie and go on demi-pointe. Without these, I wouldn't be able to do pointe-work. I will never dance without these again.
