Our studio sells revolution. The shoes and Leos are okay, but the tights are horrendous.

I prefer capezio. What are your favorites in terms of durability and comfort?

My daughter's favorites are the Capezio 1916 - soft waist band but the tights last well.

Dd prefers Gaynor tights. When she needs to wear seamed (she is supposed to for some reason), she likes their newest pseudo-mesh pseudo seamed tights. They are pricier but seem to last longer and I think they hold their color longer than Capezio. She wore Capezio for many years before this. She also likes the Zarely tights, but they are far too expensive for everyday!

DD wears Mondor tights - their 316 Ultra Soft ones, Ballerina pink for all ballet and Suntan for jazz and tap. She wears the 319s if she needs convertible. She has been wearing them for years and they last. The colour on the pink ones does fade over time, as I would expect. She is still wearing tights from last year.

We're required to wear body wrappers on stage. Off stage I buy the cheap Natalie brand from discount dance. They actually hold up better, IMO, than the more pricey body wrappers and my daughter prefers them.

we like the capezio hold and stretch (they changed their name on that but they are the same thing!)

Gaynor tights for class, and Zarely for performance!

Body Wrappers have seem to last forever, DD has had the same few pairs all season and not a snag, rip or tear!

Curious about zarely - I've seen this brand recommended so many times before I thought I'd order a few pairs for DD before her SIs this year. Which style is recommended by you? I see performance, rehearsal and compression. Are they all great? Do they last well? We have generally preferred capezio mesh or just regular capezio in the past, but I feel like the quality is not consistent anymore. I may also get a pair of gaynor to try out as well.

Also curious about Zarely - do they have any that don't look weird (I think the rehearsal tights have some obvious patterning on them) or have seamed legs?  Also curious if they really make legs look slimmer and more hyperextended ?!

DD loves the Mini Minden tights. They're super comfy. They don't seem quite as durable as some other brands though.

This might explain a pair of Body Wrappers tights my daughter has that are as tall as she is! I think they might have been mis-packaged but it was good for a laugh.
