These are super comfy tights, my 9 yr old loves them, but they didn't even last a month!! I ordered two pairs, she danced in them twice a week each pair from 1-4 hrs and before the month was up, she had strings and holes. WASTE OF MONEY!!
I bought these for my daughter since they were inexpensive and she dances most nights of the week. She has also worn Bloch and Capezio. When I was ordering her another collection of tights, she said she only wanted Natalie because they were soooooo soft and comfortable.
Ordered 2 pairs of these for my 11 year old and they both either began shredding/pilling or ran the first use. She's a competitive dancer and takes good care of her things and she knows how to manage tights. While Capezio's can last her 2-3 years, these did not. Having to replace them now just weeks after purchasing them. Go with Capezio or Body Wrappers.
Ordered my daughter two pairs to use for beginning modern instruction. First pair snagged on the initial wearing. Second is holding up for time being, but ordered different brand this time. We prefer Bloch brand for footed but could not locate a child size convertible.
