STRAIGHT - RECTANGULAR SHAPE (ATHLETIC FORM)
Your shoulders, waist, and hips have approximately the same width and your muscles are well-defined. Good news! most leotards styles work for your body shape. To highlight your figure and your athletic shape, our leotard Aura will be a great choice.
Love your curves! Your hips are the widest part of your body, you have narrow shoulders and a small bust. If this is your case, look for a dance leotard with details around the bust or a high neck style to balance your shape. We recommend Penélope.
Your bust and hips are the same widths and your waist is very well-defined. We encourage you to highlight your waist with a leotard like Alda, to keep the top and bottom of your body balanced. Also, the open-backs and athletic styles like Aura are ideal for you!
INVERTED TRIANGLE SHAPE
When your shoulders are wider than your hips, we recommend you avoid high neck styles and leotards that emphasize your upper body. If you like sleeveless leotards you should try with thin straps or with a round or V-neckline leotard such as Diana. Long and 3/4 sleeve styles will suit you well too.
This body type is defined by narrow hips and a medium to large bust. Look for ballet clothes with details that enhance your waist, like a belt or a waist seam. Leotards with higher-cut legs and delicate details on the bust will also suit you well. Try it by yourself! We recommend Aria.
Whatever your body type is, there will always be a leotard that fits you well. The most important thing is to find a style that enhances your body shape and makes you feel comfortable and confident.
