Velour Zone Leotard Buying Guide

Leotards from The Zone feature an extensive range of velour and Lycra print gymnastic wear. In vivid colours, up-to-date prints, and in a complete range of styles, velour is comfortable and stretches with you to enhance movement. Manufactured in a complete range of sizes, there is a good-looking velour and Lycra leotard to fit any practice or competition day.


Leotard Basics

Leotards fit the body snugly, but still allow room to move and stretch. Worn by acrobats, gymnasts, dancers, figure skaters, and circus performers as both practice and performance or competition garments, leotards can be sleeveless, long sleeved, or have no sleeves at all. Entered through the neck and sometimes containing a zipper in the back, the leotard stays in place because of the elasticity of the garment. Constructed of blends like velour and Lycra, leotards hold up well to extreme athletic movement in gymnastics.


Selecting the Correct Zone Velour Leotard Size

It is important to select the right size to ensure your velour leotard stays in place. Be sure to measure for size carefully, using a paper or cloth tape.

For those who fall between sizes, it is best to select the next larger size.


Choosing the Velour Leotard Style

Whether your body leotard has a scoop neck, short sleeves, or has a back zipper with a high neck, the style you select should be the best style for your body type and athletic participation. Women who have long necks may want to show this elegant shape, whereas a woman with a larger size waist may want to wear a leotard that minimises the look of the mid-body. Vertical stripes or blocks can elongate the body for someone who is short-waisted, whereas busy patterns work for young girls who have slim bodies.
