The unitard that I received differs somewhat from the picture, in that it has a low scoop back rather than being cut straight across. That is not a problem - I rather prefer the low cut. Overall it does have odd proportions though. The legs are quite long, but that doesn't surprise me, as I am only 5' tall. The torso, however, is VERY long. I could easily take out 4" to mimic the fit shown on the models in the photo. The center-back seam is also cut very straight, so that it pulls away from my lower back when I stand straight, and I'm not even sway-backed. The legs are strange in that they are cut with a lot of extra fullness around the knees. If one turns the unitard inside out and lays it flat, the side seam of the leg actually curves considerably - in an almost bow-legged way. Thus it appears baggy at my knees. It's made of a light weight spandex, and unlined, so following a suggestion from a previous review, I'll add some soft bra cups. With a few fixes this can be a very simple and elegant garment. Only, for this price, and the amount of sewing I'll be doing on it, I could have purchased fabric & sewn my own unitard. It's most likely designed for a very tall person with a flat back, long torso and long legs.
I have this unitard in both black and raspberry, and I love it! Perfect, snug fit, runs true to size. Sometimes I roll up the legs beneath my knees to have a capri look. It doesn't have a lining, but isn't see-through, so you can either wear it alone or wear a cami sports bra underneath if you need more support (I sometimes do a contrasting color. It looks really cute!). Really nice material. It has a slight sheen to it, but isn't too shiny to wear in class. Overall, great!
This unitard is gorgeous! It is very comfy. The raspberry color is wonderful and its durable as well. I am an aerialist and I perform on silks and this material is very slidy, I should have known that...other than that its just one wonderful unitard. If you are a dancer you gonna love this one...
I ordered two of these in black because I was looking for a unitard that was nylon/lycra so that shirts, shorts skirts would slide smoothly over them. Also, I wanted something that would eliminate wearing 3-4 layers of clothing (underwear, leotard, shorts/tights, skirt w/sewn-in pants, etc., and also eliminate an underwear line).
I intended to cut them off and mend them at capri-length and shorts-length, but I like it full length as well, and will be ordering a third so I can have all three.
This unitard is not lined, so if you're not wearing anything over it, you will probably want to wear underwear or put in some bra cups.
My only complaint is that the material gaps around the bottom of the knees. I wish it was a little more snug around the knees, but I suppose if they made it tighter, it might not fit everyone.
I really like the material. It feels nice and seems to be very good quality. The only reason I gave it 4 stars on durability is because I just received these a week ago and have only worn it a few times, so I can't answer how it will hold up over time.
