The price seemed high to me at first, but I wound up trying this elastic anyway. I'm really glad I did, it's blends in well and is durable (also comfortable directly against the skin). It came with enough elastic in one package for me to sew it criss-cross across the top of my pointe shoes. My shoes just wore out but the elastic still looks like new, I might try to reuse it.
I love this elastic.It provides excellent support, and doesn't occassionly hold you back. Even though the color is a little more golden than my Russian Pointe Sapfirs, the elastic is invisible.It is very long, one pack is more than enough for single-band elastic. If you criss cross like me, I recommend buying two packs. Overall theses elastics provide excellent support and are very comfortable.
The Chacott mesh elastics are amazing! They are the only kind that I use for pointe shoes. Great appearance and very tender. Definitely hold better than mesh elastics of any other brand. It is worth the price.
