Sizing Guidelines and Chart for Leotards
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Here are a few tips to help you and your members with leotard sizing.
Particular attention needs to be given when ordering lined leotards.
Please note that our sizing chart and recommendations are a guide only and will address the majority of sizing situations. If sizing advice is required, our staff are more than happy to assist:
The new ordered leotards will be a firmer fit than the tryon leotards. In addition, matt lycra is slightly firmer than shiny lycra.
The cut of the leotard also affects the fit. For example, a style with thin straps will be less restrictive than a style with more fabric around the arm and shoulder.
When a leotard is lined, the stretch is reduced by approximately 2/3 in both directions as compared to an unlined leotard.
if measurements fall comfortably within a size range then that size would be appropriate Note: allowance needs to be made if sewing in a body stocking.
if measurements fall in the top end of a size range, then we recommend going up a size.
Size recommendation for lined leotards:
if measurements fall in the lower end of a size range, then that size would be appropriate.
if measurements fall in the mid to top end of a size range, then we recommend going up a size.
How to Take the Girth Measurement:
The girth measurement is taken by beginning at the centre of the right shoulder and extending the tape measure over the bust, down through the crotch and up back to the starting point.
