I bought this for my 11 year old daughter who wears in regular clothes a size 10/12. The sizes only come in 8/10 or 12/14, so I ordered up to make sure it fit. The leotard fits good on the shoulders, but the length is too short causing it to ride up. We had to return it.
I loved the fancy back on this leotard, and so decided to order it, even though it only came in children's sizes. I was 4'11", 65 lbs when I got it, and I had a girth of 49", so I ordered a large. The material is smooth and thick, so it is comfortable and doesn't show sweat very easily. Also, it hasn't faded or torn despite being washed and worn. The back detail is also very pretty. However, it is too short. The shoulders tugged a little, but being cap sleeves, they couldn't move much. So, the crotch pulled really hard and ended with a very high leg line. It was expensive, so I didn't want to just throw it away, so I kept wearing it with booty shorts over the top to cover my bum, and only wore it for one class at a time. The leotard is lovely, but make sure to order a size or two sizes up from what the girth chart tells you.
