I love this leo! Unfortunately it won't be my go-to simply because it doesn't stay on the shoulders very well. I didn't realize the make of this leo until I'd already bought it, and it's too much hassle to do a return. I should have sized down.
This is a leo for a much taller dancer. If you're a tall girl, this one's for you! Get your usual size.
If you're average or shorter, you'll want to try sizing down to help bring the length down. I'm not going to get into how directional stretches in textiles works.
It is a BEAUTIFUL leo.
After looking at the various reviews of many of these leotards, I had hoped that this Large would be a good fit - but alas, it really was too small. While the sizing chart made me think that I, a 5'8 1/2" woman, about 152 lbs, could fit into this leo, that would be the total MAX it would allow.
As I am an older dancer, trying to get back into a class and into good shape, this wasn't the product for me.
This leotard is ridiculously pretty and confortable!! It makes me look skinnier than usual. Even my legs look longer! I'm 5'8'' and bought a medium. It's a little big and the straps sometimes fall off, but it doesn't matter that much since the sleeves always stay on properly. Overall this is a gorgeous leotard.
