After a lot of issues with achilles tendinitis, my teacher recommended I switch to a stretchy ribbon for my pointe shoes. She had a spare pack of this ribbon and I immediately loved it. What I didn't expect after that was how hard it would be to come by! So glad DDS carries this now.
It has a great matte look, and while the color may not specifically match the shoes I've worn in the past (Russian Pointe, Suffolk, Gaynor Minden), it looks good over tights which ends up tying the look together over all. It also lasts well, as I've used the same ribbons for multiple pairs of shoes. I personally find it to be plenty supportive while still being gentler on my ankles than traditional ribbon has been.
I have been using these leotards for a while now. They are stretchy, so it is VERY easy to tie them too tight.When you tie them just right, they are very comfortable. The clor is not very pink, closer to a tan,white or nude color.But, they are easily dyed to match your pointe shoe color.These ribbons are good for those with tight Achilles, like me. I recommend these ribbons, and suggest being careful when things!
i have used these before, but i got them from my local dance shop instead. i hoped that they would have these on discount dance and now they do! these ribbons have fantastic longevity and are matte. i love matte ribbons because they blend with tights much better. they are also great for pancaking your shoes to make the skin color. the bloch elasticated ribbons are shiny so they are supposed to look like satin, but they just look shimmery and weird. these ribbons also stay tucked in. the pillows for pointe brand stretchy ribbons don't and pop out quite easily. these ribbons are a must!
