Belts to keep tights up?

Recommended Posts


hi AsiaBalletBoyTW - do you mean the leotard has a built in dance belt or just the thong made of the leotard material? I know this isnt the topic but it concerns me if your son isnt wearing a dance belt? Thats not safe for them. Sorry if I got the wrong end of things here but just need to ask....

Thanks for your mention, Thyme. I'm sorry I didn't say it clearly. The ballet dress code for my sons at school includes this: “White footed tights with suspenders , white ballet slipper with full sole, and white leotard”. The white leotard my sons wore is a short-sleeve style and with a built-in dance belt. So...they didn't wore a traditional dance belt, but a leotard combine with the dance belt. It fit tight and very comfortable, they could wore it all day and even in many other classes.

My son wears the elastic belt used in baseball uniforms. While it has a buckle, he likes that it is wider than other belts. He then rolls the top of the tight over the belt a couple of times and it makes for a good fit and line. You can get them at Dicks Sporting goods for less than $10.
