These are built as a separate Bodice and Basque skirts, and can remain as separates if wished, but most choose to have it turned into a single item for ease of use. The Classical Tutu is designed to fit close and support the correct positioning and movement of the ballet dancer. These are designed on professional standards for those who are serious about their ballet. The Classical tutu are constructed specifically to support the dancer and allow freedom of movement which differs from non ballet corsets.
The fully fitted corset bodice is cut from a fabric of choice and fully lined with stong corset lining.
The English Classical bodice made up with between 8 – 14 panels which are to ensure an accurate and snug fit fastened with hook and bar closure. The classical bodice is fitted to the waist with V point bodice and a matching fabric basque exposed. This style accentuates the dancers waist and offers full freedom of movement.
The long line bodice normally associated with the Russian style is made up of 10- 16 panels to fit to the body shape. The long line bodice has a hidden basque and sits on the high hip.
Either style bodice has front seam boning to allow movement for the ballet dancer. The basic bodice has piping top and bottom with elastic shoulder straps. Extensively hand finished for a quality tutu
The romantic tutu has a a long line skirt attached to a panty and basque which is hidden under a fitted v pointed corset. The corset style can allow for sleeves or peasent style as a feature.
Stretch Tutu The stretch tutu is based on similar lines to the classical fitted tutu but is constructed from softer stretch fabrics such as lycra or velvet giving an overall ease of wearing which many younger dancers prefer. The stretch tutu is built from double layer as a seamed fitted leotard showing the V point front of a classical tutu but with the skirt attached directly to the leotard.The stretch tutu is not built to be as long lasting as the classical, but parents often prefer this option as children grow and the tutu can fit without additional alterations.
