Flip Flop Leos GIVEAWAY!!

IMG_0632

I’ve done it again! I’ve partnered with Debbie over at Flip Flop Leos for another leotard giveaway!!

A few months ago we discovered Flip Flop Leos and absolutely fell in love…it was truly love at first sight (and feel). Debbie has been making leotards for 30 years (for her daughter throughout her gymnastics career) so she absolutely knows what she is doing!

IMG_0533We love Debbie’s pattern for these leotards! It’s like the were created just for Gabbi (they fit exactly like her custom leotard from another brand!) Gabbi is long and narrow so finding the perfect leotard fit was quite the journey. In most brands if it fits in the torso the it is really baggy in the body (I’m talking REALLY baggy) then contrast that to if it fits her body nice and sleek (you know that look every gymnast wants) then it is WAY too tight in the torso resulting in serious shoulder and thigh pressure marks and a lot of painful tears. IMG_0569

Honestly friends that all changed with our first leo from Flip Flop Leos! We knew we had found Gabbi’s perfect brand! We love the sleek cut, the wider crotch and the lower cut hip prevents any embarrassing panty moments {Gabbi hates when her undies show}

You might be asking your self ‘are Flip Flop Leos are only for long and lean?’ NO WAY! Flip Flop Leos have a ton of stretch so they will fit any body shape!

Remember to always know your gymnasts torso measurement for the best fit. {Gabbi will be 8 at the end summer and wears a Flip Flop Leo size 6 with growing room.} Check out Debbie’s video on YouTube are getting the right fit!

Flip Flop Leos Showcase

10380486_883520768340394_6798743550605970213_o

ff1When I hear the word “Gymnastics” I think of the usual suspects…beam, bars, vault, floor…and of course LEOTARDS! I think most gymnasts would agree that leotards are one of the best parts of being a gymnast. Leotards have the fantastic and unique ability to show a gymnasts personality! Today we {my daughter G and I} are thrilled to be sharing Flip Flop Leos!
If you haven’t heard of Flip Flop Leos you are truly missing out on something amazing!

Flip Flops can be found on eBay {visit the store HERE!} and super sweet Debbie {the owner} has 30 years experience making Leotards! Here’s a bit of her story 🙂

When my daughter, Dana, was six years old she began gymnastics in a small recreational program, and that began a mother/daughter journey that continues to this day.  As she progressed to a gymnastics team and began working out over 20 hours a week I wanted to encourage her without being a “pushy” parent.  I decided that one of the ways I could do this was to provide a variety of gymnastics workout leotards so that she would feel pretty and special every day.  The cost of leotards available in catalogs (No internet then! Can you imagine??)  and pro shops drove me to get out my sewing machine and start sewing!  Dana competed all-around at the highest levels all the way through high school, eventually earning a full gymnastics scholarship to University of Denver.

By that time I had sewn hundreds of leotards for Dana, her friends, and the pro shop at her gym.  I learned that the leotards needed to be fashionable and FUN!  Ebay was just an online yard sale almost 13 years ago when I started selling on Ebay.  Now, hundreds of thousands of leotards later I’m still selling.  I have over 29,623 unique feedbacks with 100% positive rating.  I usually have over 200 styles listed at any one time.  I make matching warm-up leotards for teams, outfit many gym-acro teams, and even provide leotards for some pro shops.  I ship free domestically within 24 hours of any purchase.

Debbie is more than just a leotard maker she is a gymnastics mom which I love! And, let me tell you she is the sweetest business owner I have had the privilege to work with {seriously!}

ff4When you look at Flip Flop Leos the first thing that stands out is the ridiculous cuteness of them! Debbie has so many {SO MANY} different patterns that you are sure to find the perfect one for your gymnasts personality! After receiving our Flip Flop Leos there are a some things that I would love to tell you about Flip Flop Leos.

The first one I think any mama to a little girl will appreciate, the crotch is wider than all the other leos that G has. To be honest there are a few leo that G has that she is only allowed to wear at home because the crotch it is just too narrow…like inappropriately narrow…why? That is not the case at all with Flip Flop Leos! Debbie definitely knows what she’s doing, her leotards have the perfect size, not too wide and not too narrow. You may be thinking but if it’s wider won’t it hurt or leave pressure marks? G had gymnastics practice the day her Donut Leo arrived and she wore it for about 4 hours and there were no pressure marks, she told me it was her most comfortable leotard! That’s big because usually by the time practice is over she ready to change.

ff6The next thing that I love is the leotard cut! The straps are not too thin, the arm holes are not too tight or too loose (either can be a very uncomfortable issue) the leg is not cut high (I LOVE this) I love that her undies are 100% covered in her Flip Flop Leos!!!

My most favorite part about Flip Flop leos? Oh my goodness guys they fit G PERFECTLY. She has a longer torso but is very string bean skinny, this makes finding a leotard that fits fitted somewhat tricky. Some leotards fit awesome throughout her torso but are so baggy everywhere else, some fit great throughout her body but pull on her shoulder because the torso is too short. Ugh! I don’t know how Debbie does it but Flip Flop Leo are perfection.
In fact as I write this G is wearing her leo playing video games with her brothers…it’s just that comfortable!

ff2The cuteness of the Flip Flop Leos can not be denied! G’s donut leo arrived literally 1 hour before we needed to leave for gymnastics practice. Nearly every staff member and coach commented on how “adorable” her leo was! We got a lot of “where did you get her leotard?”

Flip Flop Leos has a special everyday save $5 when you spend $60!

Flip Flop Leos are all under $30 starting a $6.99 (specific sizes and styles) making Flip Flop Leos some of the most affordable leos out there with the LARGEST selection on the market! Flip Flop Leos also has INSANLY fast shipping!

We love the donut and hot air ballon leos so much that we already have a list of more we plan to get for little G! These are our top 5 favorite as of today 🙂
