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!

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?!

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!

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!!

gym-digs

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

dg2

“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!!!

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 🙂

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!

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 🙂

Garland Activewear {gymnastics leotards}

Custom made Gymnastic Leotards in St Augustine, Florida

SHOP GARLAND ACTIVEWEAR GYMNASTIC LEOTARDS

Who doesn’t love leotards {especially gymnastic leotards} I love that they have the ability to radiate a personality 100%! Such is the case with my Gabbi and her Under the Sea Mesh Back Leotard from Garland Activewear!

This stunning leo is the embodiment of my little girl, sparkly and bold with a whole lot of Mermaid sprinkled in!

gaw5

I am THRILLED to be collaborating with Garland Activewear. I cannot wait to tell you all about the Leotards and people who make Garland Activewear!

It seems like everywhere we go we check the leotard rack {because you can’t have too many right} so Gabbi has a pretty good size collection from pretty expensive to very inexpensive and I’ve learned that not all leos are created equal so I honestly had no idea what to expect from Garland Activewear {since this was our first leotard from them} When Gabbi’s Under the Sea leotard arrived it was packaged so nicely and secure, the leo and matching scrunchie were neatly folded and placed in a clear plastic protective with a card to both Gabbi and me {the card was NOT a printed form card…it was hand written to us! AMAZING right!} When I took the Leotard out of the bag and felt the impeccable quality, I turned and told my husband “from now on the is our go to brand!” I’m not just saying that I was and still am serious!

Take a look at this beautiful leotard!

GAW3

My husband was equally impressed with the quality but as a Business Quality Analyst for the past 15 years the personalize card stood out more than anything to him and made us feel like Garland Activewear is a company we WANT to buy from!

And Gabbi…oh Gabbi! She gasped when she saw it and squealed the entire time she was getting it on! She looked at her self in the mirror and about lost it when she saw the mesh back because she loved it so much. She immediately asked if she could wear it…to the store, to play basketball with her brothers, skateboarding, in the sprinklers, to grandmas and to bed {yes that was all in the same breath and I’m sure I missed a few things!} Needless to say she was in love!

GAW4

The leotard fits her sleek which is exactly how she likes it. She can jump, roll and flip all around and it stays perfectly in place. You may think “duh of course it stays in place” but that isn’t always the case. Gabbi is very slim {she will be 7 in just a few weeks and wears 3t comfortably…she’s too tall for 3t but the waist fits perfect} Often she gets the “gymnastics wedgie” and a 6 she is not subtle about it 🙂 With her Garland Activewear leo it doesn’t happen because of the perfect cut. She can also wear regular panties with it, which if you are familiar with leotards then you know this is not always the case. She is comfortable wearing this leotard without shorts over it and both her daddy and I are too. Garland leos have wider crotches, and as a mother this is something that is very important to me, I want to make sure my daughter is covered and protected. She has a leo that has an extremely narrow crotch and she does not wear it outside the home and she prefers to wear shorts over it even in our own home. Although the crotch is wide it does not make red pressure marks in her thighs at all…I think Garland Activewear just has the magic sizing!

gaw6

The mesh back is comfortable and not scratchy. This was something I was a little worried about as Gabbi is EXTREMELY picky about fabrics, but she said it is very soft and “cozy”! As I mentioned above the quality is impeccable, there is the perfect amount of stretch and the stitching is beautiful. All the seams are sewn perfectly, this stood out to me because recently we purchased a fairly expensive leo for her and I was really disappointed in the bunchy stitching, it almost seemed like a 2nd quality, this is NOT the case with Garland Activewear!

GAW2The Scrunchie…I can’t forget that! It is made from the exact some material as the main part of her Under the Sea leo and has the perfect amount of stretch so it can be worn over a large bun or wrapped multiple time around a ponytail!

The best part! The beautiful Under the Sea Leotard with matching Scrunchie is $35.50

{Garland leos range from $27.50-$37.50 – they also do custom orders!}

Sizing: When purchasing from Garland Activewear I would recommend ordering your child’s clothing size for a sleek fit or one size bigger for a “room to grow” fit. This is my personal thoughts, if you have questions about sizing I would suggest getting in touch with Garland Customer service, I know they can help!

I have yet to wash it, I do hand wash and lay flat to dry all her leos {many have sparkles} but I see no reason for it to not wash and dry beautifully!

WHY WE LOVE GARLAND:

GAW1

Customer Service: The people at Garland are so friendly with great communication! Big shout out to Abbie and all her hard work. She is so sweet and extremely prompt in her responses!

The Pricing: As I mentioned above Garland has great quality couple that with great pricing and you have a match made in heaven! The quality is that of leotards that range from $70+!

The Website: Garland Activewear has a very easy to use website {this is not always the case} it’s easy to navigate and it’s always very easy to make quick order.

I think it goes without saying that we TRULY love this company and couldn’t be more happy with our Garland leos! They have new Ombre Leotards that we LOVE!
