Leotard of the Month June
This Amelie leotard by Ballet Rosa comes in both black and navy
Looking at adding some florals for summer into your dance wardrobe but don’t suit patterns? Ballet Rosa have got your back (quite literally with this design)! The Austrian embroidered lace on the mesh panels in this leotard are a subtly feminine way to welcome in the warmer weather without going all out colour and florals. The front is clean and simple - it’s a style that pairs well with anything, but it’s the back of this leo that gives the real wow factor to inspire your classmates with envy. The back opens up to reveal an oval shape of skin down your spine, intended to both highlight the edges of the embroidered lace and balance out the high neck. The lace runs down your spine and ends just above the small of your back. It’s finished off with a dainty little ruched detail that adds some more shape to your figure.
Can I dance in this?
The stretchy performance fabric moulds to your figure for a streamlined fit, but it’s also clever enough to respond to your moves. You’ll experience no restriction from your leo in this style because of the lycra blend. The lace on this leotard is delicate and pretty, but Ballet Rosa have designed it with all of your possible moves in mind so you can wear it to dance class!
Just look at the gorgeous embroidered detail on the lace!
Will this look good on me?
Don’t shy away from turtlenecks! They can help to balance out features on your body that you don’t necessarily rate your best. This turtleneck look is flattering on lots of different body shapes. The lace on this leo can help to soften the sharpness from the high neck style and make it more feminine and less severe. High necks are especially pretty on dancers who sport a ballet bun! If you have a larger bust, you may find that a turtleneck will actually draw attention to it rather than hide it because there’s no skin in between your chin and chest to break it up a little. So small busted girls, this may be the leo for you! Do you have a not-so-flat stomach that you’re looking to dress well? A turtleneck can work to elongate and slim your torso! Slim necks and narrow shoulders look best in this style, but dance is about confidence so you should feel empowered to wear whatever you love!
Where would I wear this leotard?
This look is so elegant that it naturally suits the classicism of ballet. Especially when paired with a ballet bun, you can really show off both your fashion sense and your figure in this style. This feminine lace and high neck look also goes really well with both short and long ruffle skirts for ballroom and latin!
