The color is really nice and the mesh back is beautiful. I do agree with the other review that says it is harder to get on then other leos because of the lack of stretch but it hasn't ripped and I LOVE it once it is on.
This leotard is gorgeous once you get it on, but actually getting into it is problematic. The neck opening is barely big enough to get over your hips and shoulders, and you can't be rough with it because the mesh is so delicate - if you got a hole in the mesh it would ruin the entire look of the leo! The mesh also has limited elasticity, again making it hard to get on. Once it's on, though, it's definitely pretty. Just don't buy it if you don't have the patience to spend a couple of minutes getting it on and off.
One of my best friends has a 17 year old daughter who's been practicing ballet since she's 4. Her passion and drive is somenthing that amazes me. So, everytime I have the chance I try to pamper her with ballet related gifts for her birthdays or any given holiday related to kids. It's my way of supporting her. We used to be roomates but now we live in differrent countries so she pointed this website out to me to pick a leotard for her for her birthday. She loved it! It's very comfortable, it fit her perfectly and it's very elegant. Fabric is not itchy, and soft. Higly recommended!!!
