CPYB Dress Code LeoSATarday 1

This is a little bit of a different LeoSATarday post because I will be blogging about a leotard AND tights. 🙂

Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet has a very strict dress code. Traditional leotards, pink tights. No criss cross, no mesh, no lace, no halter, no crazy low backs, no double straps, nothing multi-colored. Since I only owned one leotard that fit the “traditional” description and would be taking at least 3 classes a day, I did some shopping. Of course I couldn’t just buy multiple leotards of the same style, I had to find as many different “traditional” leotards as possible. This includes: just plain cami, pinch seam in front with tank straps, pinch seam with cami straps, princess seams, etc. I try not to buy cotton leotards because I feel like they turn gray quickly and show sweat easily.

LeoSATarday: Bloch Lynx Cap Sleeve

2180-1You know how I feel about cap sleeves (see Mirella’s Cap Sleeve Post or just read on) but I really love the elegance and simplicity of this leotard! The mesh top adds a fun, dressy element and the seam above the bust is a nice finishing touch. I still worry about the capped sleeves inhibiting movement and being annoying but this leotard is lovely to look at it. AND THE COLOR!! I used to hate pink vehemently and still will probably never wear baby pink but this fuchsia/magenta color is exciting! The website calls this color “Red” which makes me think my screen is making it seem more fuchsia then red. Does anyone have this leotard? I’d love to see pics and here your experience with it!

My one gripe with the Bloch website (UK and US version) is that a lot of their photos are one-sided. We only know what this leotard looks like from behind by looking at a line drawing:2183It would be nice to see the back on the model even though you get a pretty good idea of what it will look like from the drawing.
