Basic gymnastics leotards for girls

Basic gymnastics leotards for girls

Gymnastics leotards are required to be practical and comfortable, but when you make gymnastics leotards eye catching by using elaborate designs incorporating jewels and foil prints they can rapidly become very expensive. The rule of thumb for gymnastics leotards is, as for most things in life, the more complex they are the more expensive they are.

Here we shall look at the other end of the scale, the less complex or basic gymnastics leotard that are available for girls and adults.

The basic leotard typically comes with a classic round neck and is available as sleeveless or with long sleeves and is made of either Lycra or Velour. Additionally, the velour can be either smooth or crushed. Here are some classic examples:

Lycra Leotard

Lycra, or more specifically Nylon/Lycra, is the cheapest choice for leotards, but is ideal. It easily stretches in all directions and is quite elastic, making it very good at clinging close to the body, which is far better than having a baggy leotard. The colour choice for lycra is very good and the texture of the Lycra gives the leotard a shiny appearance. Here are two classic, basic gymnastics leotards:

Smooth Velour Leotard

As stated earlier velour is commonly used in gymnastics leotards. It is a much thicker fabric than Nylon/Lycra and can give a more flattering look too. It is soft to the touch and gives colours a deeper, more organic look, which works well for gymnastics. Since it is thicker than Nylon/Lycra it is much warmer to wear. Velour comes in two varieties: smooth and crushed. With smooth the nap is orientated in one direction, but with crushed the nap is turbulent and gives the leotard texture.
