I had purchased this leotard, to go with my lady bug Halloween costume. It matches my costume perfectly. After trying it on, I also realized just how comfortable it is. This leotard will not only be a great addition to my Halloween costume, but it will also be very great to wear to my dance class every week! The fit is near perfect, and it is stretchy enough to allow a lot of movement. The color and design also matches both my white tights and my black tights. Even when Halloween is over, I will look forward to wearing this to my dance practices, as well.

The product is good, just not great. However, for the money, it is a good buy. I bought a pink leotard and it is almost see-through on my daughter. The white has a full front liner, maybe the other light colors would benefit from a liner as well.

Comments about Balera Short Sleeve Leotard:
I exchanged for a smaller size as this runs huge. ordered for my 10 year old, it would probably be too big for me. hopefully the one I exchanged for will fit. material is thin and cheap looking. wouldn't recommend it. I exchanged just to not loose the money I have already spent.

I just needed something for my own practice dance routine. I was a little worried about relying on the size chart but this leo fits true to size chart! Very smooth material with stretch!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Looks great but small

Cut small I need to exchange for a size up. I used the measurements on the guide and still small. But it seems like a great material.

When we decided on a group costume based on the Sailor Moon Senshi, we knew the leotards would be the most challenging part. After looking at the collective sewing skills as well as the variety of body shapes within the group we decided to go with purchasing a set of these leotards from dancewearsolutions. When the leos arrived and we all got to try them on I was pleasantly surprised at how flexible the fitting was. Everyone was comfortable in their outfits (from the tall skinny girls to the short and built ones) and the material worked perfectly with our costumes. It was a solid white color even for those who wore black underneath, perfect for photos and definitely good quality structure.

We purchased this for our 14 year old daughter for dance class. It is a beautiful color and fits well. It is a little long for her but probably true to size as she is on the shorter side. The only big problem she has with it is that her bra shows through. I have suggested several times that she need not wear a bra with the leotard; however, given the degree that the bra does show through I'm not sure that going without is a great option for a 14 year old. Aside from this issue we love it. It seems to be made well, feels nice and is cut well. I'm going to try a few different things to see if they work better so we'll see... I probably would recommend this to a friend, except in a different darker color maybe.
I bought red for a Christmas show and it is perfect! The red is a perfect Christmas red. My daughter loves that it is "soft and comfy" Great buy at a great price!

Leotards are for dancing and this is a great one. If you like undressing every time you visit the restroom you can wear it anywhere else, but I personally prefer not to. Nice leotard, though, and price is right. Bought this one for a student. She loves it!

About Me Practical
I was recommended this product by the school she dances with. I had to have this product by a certain day. when I got it had the stitching coming out of the body in arms. I didn't have time to return it so I had to fix it myself. It was very inconvenient.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
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.
