Eurotard Dancewear

LOGO

Do you have a gymnast or dancer? If so, then you need to become acquainted with Eurotard Dancewear. Oh please let me introduce you!!

Eurotard Dancewear is an online retailer that specializes in the most beautiful gymnastics and dance wear that you can imagine! Seriously head over to their website and have a look!

Before we get into the leotards I wanted to share a little about Eurotard Dancewear:

Eurotard Dancewear is an internationally recognized brand dedicated to bringing happiness, confidence and individual style to dancers around the globe. We believe that how a dancer feels is just as important as what a dancer wears. This concept is what inspires us to consistently design leotards, non-run tights, separates and accessories that are comfortable, durable and uniquely fashionable; so dancers can feel as strong and beautiful as they look.
The quality of our products is unparalleled; our collections of dance, praise and gym wear are constructed using only the softest fabrics, richest colors and strongest materials. Careful attention to detail goes into each and every one of our garments, from the double surged seams and quick dry linings to the distinctive fashion designs.
Whether you are just now discovering Eurotard Dancewear or have been a loyal customer for years, we thank you for your interest and continued support.
Sincerely,
The Eurotard Dancewear Team

They also offer more than just leotards:

and more!

Of course having a little gymnast I was drawn to every single gymnastics leotard, but if you have a dancer, then you need to check out this gorgeous lace back leo!

45879c BLK back-105

Ok now on to the leos…

We were so excited to receive two of Eurotard Dancewear stunning gymnastics leotards in Little Peacock {in pink} and Disco Leopard.

This Little Peacock leo is SO shiny and sparkly.g7

Gabbi and I both said “oh my goodness” when we opened the package. This leo is so gorgeous catches the light like you wouldn’t believe. Gabbi loves this leo SO MUCH more than all her other “glam” leos.

Recently she wore this leo to practice she was swarmed! While on the floor other coaches kept going over to look at it and ask where it was from. Her coach told me later that she finally had to tell the other coaches they had to wait until after practice to ask questions about the leotard because she kept getting interrupted!! I mean look at it, can you blame them?!

g10
This leo is different from all the other embellished and multi piece leos that Gabbi has. Usually she does not want to wear leos with any kind of embellishments especially multi fabric piece leos because the stitching is scratchy due to the edge of the two fabrics being sewn together or the glue ends up leaving a rough spot on the inside of the leo. I totally get that, it would feel weird especially when it’s on the chest and a seen together design. Now when it comes to this Little Peacock leo there is a BIG difference, Eurotard  has a unique way of sewing the fabric together so that it lays flush with the rest of the leotard! Yay no rough edges!

g2

Now on to the Disco Leopard leo!

g12

Gabbi LOVES this leopard leo so much! I’m honestly not sure what she likes better, that is leopard print? Maybe it’s the bright colors? OR maybe it’s because it is SO sparkly!! There is so much adorableness to this leo it’s too hard to pick one reason to love it!


Gabbi wore this leo to practice the other night and as soon as we walked in the door coaches and parents where admiring it! One of the main comment was “I love opened back!” Seriously it is adorable.

This leo glitters in the light and shines bright in the sun! Gabbi couldn’t be more thrilled with it!

g11

Not only is it very striking but it’s tagless, if you have a daughter who loves leos than you get why this is such a huge deal! Gabbi really dislikes tags so this was a HUGE hit with her!

g17

Both of these leotards are beautifully made, the quality is impeccable and they have a very stunning sleek fit! We will for sure be long time customers of Eurotard Dancewear and their stunning leos!

These leotards are worth every penny and I would suggest to anyone who is a gymnast or has a gymnast to check out Eurotard!

I had promised some gymnastic practice photos but unfortunately the photos from practices didn’t come out as good as I had planned due to weather and lighting at the academy…blah! I really wanted some cool in “action” photos but with the insane daily snow and over cast sky it wasn’t happening!

NOW for the AWESOMENESS you have been waiting for! 

I have partnered with the lovely staff at Mia at Eurotard Dancewear to do a giveaway!!! Oh but there is more! Heres the really the FANTASTIC part…we are giving away not ONE, not TWO but THREE  Holographic Waves Leotards!!! Yep that’s right 3 winners! My favorite part? The winner gets to pick the color cherry or teal and size {child-adult}! Gabbi doesn’t have this leo but let me tell you she would LOVE to have it. It’s metallic and so stunning! You guys are so lucky!!

To enter click the image below! Good Luck! *I do check each entry so please no fake or duplicated accounts.

This giveaway will run from March 7th until March 22th!! Three winners will be randomly selected  on March 23rd and contacted shortly after. U.S Residents  **Winners have 5 days to respond, if not a new winner will be selected. 

Good Luck!

Gym Digs Glow Tank Leotard GIVEAWAY {ENDED}!

gym-digs

I’m really excited today because I get to introduce you to Gym Digs!

Gym Digs specializes in gymnastics wear for both boys and girls, not just workout leotards but warmups, shorts and some of the most beautiful competition leotards at fantastic prices!

“Bright, cheerful and it glows in the dark.  Perfect for the gym or for a party!”

Gabbi received the Glow Tank Leo from Gym Digs while she was at school, and was ecstatic when she arrived home and saw it waiting for her! She could not wait to put it on, get her mat out and start working out in it! Of course she had to give it a test run outside…while it was snowing and freezing cold!

The quality of the Glow Tank leotard is fantastic it is a stretchy and comfortable… and it glows in the dark how cool is that!

itglows

Since it arrived Gabbi has been pretty much glued to it…or in it!

Every time she wears it, she gets tons of compliments and comments! The day it arrived we ran to the store, she was wearing leggings over it and we were stopped by a mom asking where she could get the leo for her daughter, when she found out that it was a Glow in the Dark leo she ordered right then and there from her phone! Awesome huh?

gd5

Not only did Gabbi get this adorable leotard but she also got the coolest ice pack! Anyone who has a kiddo in gymnastics knows aches and pains comes with the territory!

gd15

Gym Digs is so much more than just a “Leotard Shop” they have set themselves apart from so many other online gymnastics retailers by offering a whole range of boy’s wear! While I do not have a son in gymnastics, I have quite a few friends who have sons in gymnastics, they’ve said that it can be difficult finding the right clothes for their gymnast sons. I think it’s fantastic that Gym Digs sees the need and has boy’s wear readily available.

But Gym Digs doesn’t stop there they also offer:

gd10Another fun item that Gym Digs offers is doll leos!! Gabbi really wants the Confetti Crush Leo with two matching doll leos for her American Girls! Adding a doll leo is just $6!!!

Be sure to head over and visit the Gym Digs website and check out all their products and services!

 

Gym Digs has quickly become one of our most favorite gymnastics shops! We love their leotards so much and cannot wait to get more! These are Gabbi’s top three 🙂

Confetti Crush Leo:

 Be Mine Valentines Leo:

Golden Goddess:

Gym Digs prices are awesome and they have a wide range of sizes but if your gymnast falls between sizes, no problem Gym Digs will make a custom size leotard to fit you or your gymnast like a glove for an additional $6!! Gabbi’s Glow Tank Leo is a custom size to fit her small yet long frame and it of course fits AMAZING!

Ok, my raving about Gym Digs wouldn’t be complete without to telling you about their beautiful competition leotards!

These are hands-down some of the most gorgeous competition leotards I have seen, and the best part? They cost $34 to $115!!! How awesome is that? Competition leotards can easily be upwards of $150+ which can be out of many families price range. Whether you’re spending $34 or $115 Gym Digs has a gorgeous competition leotard for your gymnast!

Here are our top competition leotard picks!
