My daughter got this for a competition dance. She just today wore it one time for 45 min to practice in it. It ripped at the arm seam at the back of the underarm. You can also see little pulls at all the seams (normally seen after washing) which means the threads are already pulling/breaking. Also, my daughter's is the only one that "fits" properly. She is very slender with a small rear but the other girls that are busty or with rounder rears have issues of fitting with the leotard. It rides up horribly! I couldn't imagine having to DANCE in it!! It is a cute design but the durability is lacking! This has to last through 1 showcase, 4 comps and a recital in June. YIKES!!
I bought this for an audition where I was requested to wear "fosse-style" clothing, and this is perfect. It's sexy, without having body parts hang out, so I'm less self-conscious about my winter belly weight gain. It is very delicate though. The zipper is hard to do by myself mostly because I'm afraid of ripping the lace on either side of it. But overall I love the style. I debated between S and M, and am glad I went with the bigger size.
fits nicely and looks great but daughter had it on for 10 mins in a class and it ripped at the seams. unfortunately they would not except my return because she had worn it. mother in law reinforced seams but still ripped from the seams.
