Dance often involves form-fitting bodywear so that teachers and judges can ensure that technique is being practiced with good alignment. With such slim bodywear, underwear lines and bra straps can show quite easily, which can make legs look shorter and can result in marks being docked by the judges. In this post, we’ve highlighted some must-have items for every dancer to ensure that their lines remain elegant and elongated.
Typically, dancers are encouraged to wear seamless undergarments during performances so that there aren’t any distracting lines under their costume while dancing. It’s also recommended to wear something that closely matches the colour of your skin to avoid random shades of undergarments showing through the costume.
Seamless Dance Underwear
Coobie - Laser Cut Thongs The low rise of these underwear eliminates lines under costumes and the lightweight material makes them comfortable to wear either all day or just for performance. 100% cotton gusset and smooth edges ensures skin won’t be irritated by any tough seams.
Dux Dance - Seamless Brief The high-cut sides of these brief style bottoms ensure a no-show look under costumes. Great for dancers who prefer briefs over thongs.
Capezio - Seamless Low-Rise Thong These heavy-duty bottoms feature a high-cut leg line which elongates the appearance of the leg and allows costumes to be higher cut in the leg. The low rise across the waistband is comfortable and works well with costumes that are a lower cut around the waist.
Seamless Dance Bras
Maidenform - Strapless Wing Bra This versatile bra can be worn in a number of ways. It includes a set of wing tapes that can be attached to the wings for a backless look. With a removable clear halter strap and a back strap, this bra can be configured to exactly how you want it to fit. The molded cups and underwire provide support, comfort, and modesty.
Capezio - Camisole Bra with Bra-Tek This comfortable and supportive bra features clear straps for the ultimate low-profile undergarment. The straps can be adjusted lengthwise and can also have their position customized to fit you perfectly. The back strap also has 2 hooks on either end to adjust its position.
Capezio Bra-Tek Leotards
Capezio makes a line of leotards that feature their famous Bra-tek technology built directly into the bodysuit.
Nude Leotard with Bra-Tek This popular nudesuit is geared toward performance. The clear, adjustable shoulder and back straps help you get a perfect fit while staying hidden under costumes. The low-cut back is great for scoop back costumes. Available in a lighter and darker shade.
Cami Leotard with Bra-Tek This basic cotton bodysuit is perfect for class. The adjustable straps ensure a proper fit while the molded cups and configurable back clasp give maximum comfort.
