We were requested to get white tights for our older boys who will be doing some ballet solos shortly. They are 6 (average size) and 7 (tall). So reading around I read a couple of places that they should wear dance belts underneath so I got some 8/10 Wear Moi dance belts in addition to the white tights and they fit both boys. The studio hasn't mentioned anything about what to put under these white tights and I haven't been game ask, I figured either that they expect them to wear nothing underneath (revealing no?) or a dance belt but would they expect me to know that?
Anyway, so I have the tights and I have the dance belts but I just have to ask -- do other boys of this age wear them? If not, what are they wearing under white tights? I feel kind of wrong having 6 and 7 years olds put on g-string backs even though I know it has a purpose (I figured full seated wouldn't work under white tights). But I also know there will be no choice at some stage and it may be easier to just say "this is what boys and men wear under tights" and leave it as non-negotiable from the first time so there is never an uncomfortable transition later although it will happen with class at some point (they wear full seated leotards and bike shorts in class at this point, that will switch to non-footed tights soon but the full seated leotard will stay for some time and is probably supportive enough for now - or should they be made to wear them in class too?). But I also don't want to put them in a dance belt and have the studio think we're weird for putting one on boys of this age. Opinions?
They will be wearing a ballet shirt/cummerbund deal with the tights so they will not be covered 'down there' in case that is relevant to responses.
