We recently received a gorgeous leotard from the team at Dancewear Direct, an online dancewear store based in Toowoomba, Queensland. The first thing that struck me was how quickly the parcel arrived once we booked the review. In fact, 24 hours later the goods were on my doorstop and I was over 150km away from their warehouse.
The second highlight was that the garment was well packaged and encased in a clear zip lock bag so it was easy for me to visually acknowledge that the goods that arrived were in fact what I had ordered.
What struck me about the leotard was the fabric combination. It felt soft in hand and according to my 12 year old daughter, it was comfortable and nice to wear. The leotard had a fitted bra top within the leotard and that made for a more comfortable fit, particularly when moving rapidly across stage.
The Showstopper Showcase “Serenade” Low-Back Camisole Leotard is great value for money at $29.95. They stock both the Azure Blue and Black colours in sizes from Ladies Petite to Ladies XL.
“Serenade”is a stunning designer camisole, featuring a pinch-pleat V-front and a gorgeous, pleated low back, shelf-bra lining – and it’s beautifully constructed from genuine Supplex®/ Lycra®.
Genuine Supplex®/ Lycra® is an outstanding dance fabric because:
- It has the look and feel of cotton. Supplex® is breathable, odour-resistant, has a matt finish and is cotton-soft (26% to 36% softer than standard nylon fabrics);
- It has exceptional moisture control (Supplex® wicks moisture away from the body and dries faster than cotton by 56 minutes);
- Supplex® is strong and durable, resisting abrasions, punctures and tears. It also holds it’s shape and vibrant colour, resisting wrinkling, shrinking and fading (so your gear looks newer for longer); and
- Genuine Supplex®/ Lycra® provides gentle support, superb fit and great freedom of movement.
