Great to add a little flair in jazz class. Comfortable, movable and polished looking. They do not get stretched out, so they look fresh after hours of dancing. They do hug the body nicely, so order the smallest size you think will fit you.

Waist too big for shorts

Waist (elastic) is entirely to large for the size of the shorts! The shorts fit in the thigh and the rear, but the waist gaps out over and inch- close to 2 inches! Plus- one of the pairs was in a package labeled small but the shorts where actually medium. I will never order from this company again! Months ago I had issues with an order but thought it was a mistake- now I learned my lesson!

My daughter uses them for gymnastics practice

Great accessorie over bodysuit or on its own!
I bought these shorts for dancing. And they look very cute. They fit just a tiny bit small. I ordered through the sizing chart, but they are just a wee bit snug. Not to snug to be uncomfortable.
Love these shorts!!
from Bonney Lake Wa
These are perfect gymnastic shorts, the colors mix and match well with all of my daughter's leotards and they fit great!
A little short, short!

I bought 2 pairs of these shorts for my daughter to wear for gymnastics. The gold ones match beautifully with a gold based leo she has and the silver, to match many of her others. The shorts look really good and my Daughter's only complaint is that they ride up alot, exposing her (leo covered)butt- particularly when doing bars.
Wayyyy too big!
from Chicago, IL
I had to return both pairs that I ordered for my daughter. Instead, we went back to our normal Balera Competition shorts that fit true to size.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Daughter loves the sparkles

I am a costumer for local musical theatre working on a show with lots of crazy dance numbers. The shorts look great on my girls and provide perfect coverage. I love all the color options and excellent quality for a reasonable price. So much better than typical "costume" pieces. I recommend your site to my cast members often! Many are very experienced dancers, but some are not. Thanks for always providing great opinions within our budget!

They run way to small.
To measure girth, place tape measure on center of right shoulder, run through crotch and back to right shoulder loosely (as shown in diagram).
Remember, the girth is the most important measurement.
When in doubt, let the girth measurement determine size.
The below sizing information is a guide to help determine the recommended size. It is not a guarantee. Actual sizes may vary.
