The benefits of using nylon lycra in our leotards

Dancewear Universe is a family owned business with over 30 years of experience in gymnastic wear retail. Because of this, we understand how gymnastics fashions and materials change. This is why our leotards for girls by Tappers & Pointers feature nylon lycra.

Nylon lycra, also known as Spandex, is a modern synthetic fabric that was developed in 1959. Today, it is commonly used in active wear, particularly in leotards. The development of the material has had a surprising impact on performance, supporting gymnasts in particular.

Lycra is the preferred material in gymnastic leotards due to the soft, lightweight and comfortable fit. Equally, the molecular structure features a rigid section that allows for strength and durability.

The material, while soft and flexible, is tougher than rubber and won’t be damaged by sweat, detergents, and sunlight. This makes it perfect for gymnasts who practice regularly, especially those who perform physically demanding routines.

Our leotards for girls are made with these benefits in mind, without compromising on style. We sell a large variety; from sleeveless, to long sleeves, plain styling or sparkles; there is a leotard suitable for every gymnast. Plus, we offer a range of colours, from the deepest blues to the brightest, most vivid pinks.

By choosing one of our leotards, your child can practice and perform knowing that their outfit will be comfortable to wear and keep looking fantastic, time after time. The eye-catching designs will also ensure that they stand out from the crowd.
