GREAT LEOTARDS FOR BOYS
Unlike girls leotards which come in a plethora of styles and colors of the rainbow, boys leotards that are basically worn in either black or white should be quite straight forward to choose shouldn’t they?
Yes and No!
When buying a leotard for a young boy it is quite simple. Choose black or white, tank style or capped sleeves and your done.
When choosing a leotard for your pre teen or teenager, there are usually a few more things to consider which are:
- Do you buy a full seat or thong leotard?
- Do you buy a leotard with an inbuilt dance belt?
And these questions can be a bit harder to answer as wearing a thong or a dance belt for the first time can be awkward in the beginning. Check out our article ‘Do Boys Wear Leotards? And What is A Dance Belt?’ which will help you and your son understand the importance of both and how they are a staple in the male dancers ballet closet.
