I have one DD who is just beginning to develop up top and is VERY self-conscious about it.  She doesn't want to be popping through the top of her leo in class, but also doesn't want anything that shows in the back.  Of course, every leo she owns was picked for the pretty straps in the back.  She doesn't really need support, just coverage.  Do you use sticky flower petal things for that?  Or is there some kind of bralette that won't show?

Look for leotards that are lined in front. There will be an extra layer which will help the issue. I remember it was a problem for the 10-12 year old set at her old studio because the uniforms were not lined like they were for the older dancers.

Depending on the rules at your studio, she might be able to wear a sports bra underneath. Othwise I would look into lined leos. I suspect the petals themselves will show through an unlined leo, but you could give it a try.

We buy strappy little sports bras. Our studio is pretty lenient with that. I have gotten her several colors to go under the required black leo. If they are super strict at your studio I would look for the leos with the built in bras.

If she is free to chose a leotard style (no dress code specifying a specific style), Capezio makes a line with built in bras. I think they are called Bratech

My daughter insisted on the ones with the built in bras. When she got older, she switched to black bras but she was picky about them. Had to be one that wouldn't show. Then again, she didn't like leos that were very low cut, front or back.

Our studio allows sports bra or bra under leo for class. During shows and comps they wear what my daughters laughingly call their "naked suits" . (flesh colored & lined)

When that happened to my daughter she wore the petals. When she outgrew those leotards, I bought her the ones lined in the front. She also doesn't really need the full support of a bra underneath and loves the leos with the pretty back straps.

Our studio will let them wear whatever they want under the proper class leo, though most do not wear anything underneath.

We had girls of all shapes and sizes and they were allowed to wear whatever they were comfortable in under their dance attire for class.  For comp they were very conscious that some of the girls just could not go without so they either had something built in, the girls had adjustable bras or the costumes were built in such a way that a regular bra wouldn't show.

At our school they are not allowed to wear anything under, except for a nude leotard. Those are low-cut front and back therefore don't show under a regular dance leotard.
I bought one very affordable online.

The girls who need them at our school can wear a bra under for classes. They have various options they use for competition. My older DD doesn't need anything but is terrified of her nipples showing from a costume malfunction (all mental) so she puts some bandaids on and calls it a day. Again it's only for her peace of mind- but a much cheaper option that fancy flowers

There's also the low back under leos that could be worn under what she already has. At out studio, all the girls like to wear crazy colored sports bras under their practice pieces. For comps and conventions they are just required to wear something that matches the practice pieces and is nude for the costumes.

My dd is large busted, and she prefers snug fitting leos without a bra--but chooses either halter style or one with good coverage up top. The strappy ones just don't provide enough coverage or support. There are lots these days with lace or mesh that have worked great for her. It has taken some trial and error but she now has a good selection of leos that work well.

DD12 needs to wear a bra and gave up the pretty strappy leos for tank style leos and a sports bra for classes.  for under costumes, she has a nude foundation leo with support.

Which one have you found with support?  All the ones I've been able to find either are completely unlined or have a full front lining, nothing with even a shelf bra!
