Rated 2 out of 5Â by CarieB The sparkles don't last.
I thought this skirted leotard was adorable for a great price, and I bought three of these for my two daughters. They wore them for ballet once a week all last year. However, the bow and heart sparkles on the skirt and sleeves came off in the washing machine. They were significantly faded after the first wash, and there was no sparkle left within a few washes. It wasn't as cute without the sparkles. The studded bow on the top of the leotard held up much better though, for at least six months before a couple of the studs came off each one. I washed them about twice a month in a mesh laundry bag. I wouldn't have purchased it if I'd realized that the sparkles wouldn't last. You will have to wash it eventually.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by absent the dress is great, but very small
Reading the reviews before buying for my grand daughters, I ordered bigger sizes. But they are still too small. My youngest is 4 years old, and very petite. The small, which is a size 6-7 is still too small for her. She is normally in a size 4. I will have to give her the medium which I purchased for her 5 year old cousin, and get a large for the 5 year old. The medium is a size 8-10. So you need to double the size your child normally wears. Aside from this, the dresses are very nice, and pretty. The girls love them! Just beware of size.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by musicdenise Super cute, but did not run small for us
This leotard is super cute. It looks just like the picture -- at least the pink one that I got, did. My daughter does not like anything that is itchy and this was comfortable for her. However, it is too big. Because of all the reviews warning that this runs small, I did not get the small (6-7) that I would have gotten. My daughter just outgrew her 4/5 leotard and I got this one to replace it. So I got the medium (8-10). It is too big!! I would go with the dress size of the girl you are buying this for. My daugher is wearing 6s in most all of her dresses and if I'd gone by that, I would have been spot on. I cannot imagine that the 8-10 would fit any girl who is normally wearing a size 4. But that was our experience. I will be saving this one for when she grows into it and buying one that is the right size.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by DanceMomNH Love it!!
Read all the reviews, so bought 2. One in a small 6/7 and one in a medium 8/10. My daughter wears a size 5 and is thin with a long torso. The small 6/7 fit her perfectly. I bought it on sale with thirty percent off so it was such a good price I kept the bigger one for her to grow into. I love the quality. It is soft and and the skirt is adorable. She's very comfy at dance class! Washes well, too! It landed in the dryer by mistake and didn't shrink or fade.
