Pleasantly surprised with how cute and well fitting this leo is. My daughter is a very slim 8 yr old and the Child Intermediate fits her perfectly. She says it is soft "inside and out". We purchased in the Mulberry color and will likely buy more colors for the price!! Highly recommend!
Ordered this for my 7-year old daughter who wears a size 6x. Intermediate (IC) size fits perfectly. The cotton is not the softest material, but it has enough stretch. The top is a good height at the chest where she won't feel like she has to tug it up constantly. The lower V back is very flattering. Wish the leg opening was a littler higher cut. Sits below the hip. Don't know yet how it will holdup with washing. The turquoise color is pretty. Not too bright.
The style of the leotard is nice, the color is great, the sizing runs true to size. However the durability and quality of the workmanship is very poor. The fabric is also poor as well. This leotard has been worn less than ten times by my daughter and the seams in the back have come apart already. The seams attaching the straps to the front are stretched out as well, I don't know how much longer before it completely falls apart. My daughter has other Theatrical brand clothes and they have held up well.The price was what attracted me to buy this in this first place. I'm glad I resisted buying more at the time, because you get what you pay for with this leotard unfortunately.
This was the most uncomfortable leo ever, according to my 10 year old daughter. The cotton did not stretch as other brands do, so it was a little difficult to get on. Once it was on, it was uncomfortable and stiff. Felt really cheaply done, we'll be sending this one back! My daughter said it was the worst leo ever!
If you do find a reason to try it out, order a size up!
My 10-year-old daughter was ready to branch out from the standard short-sleeved leotards, and asked for a halter style. I chose this one because she didn't want a tie at the neck. She is a small age 10 and the Child Large fits her perfectly. The material is substantial but soft, and the top front is nicely-lined. She loves it and has I think forever ditched the short-sleeves. It washed nicely - washed in the machine in cold and line-dried. We will likely buy more in other colors.
I chose this leotard for my daughter, she wanted a halter leotard, and after reading reviews on several others, (that were too small) I went with this one. I got her a M - and it fit great, just like her other M leotards. It goes up and over the head (no attachment in the back or anything - just a solid piece as the halter strap) and she doesn't mind it a bit.
She says it is cozy and not at all itchy, and doesn't pull down on her neck like others seem to.
