Does anyone know what the difference between these two tights are? I can't see anything from the picture, only one is supposed to be lower cut (higher price) and the other says a V cut top too, but I've been buying the $9 ones for years for my girl and they aren't V cut. tia

They are very different fabrics.  The endura adaptatoe are nylon.  The convertible are a cotton spandex blend.

I see that now. Do you know which is better? I wonder if the cotton one is more expensive because it's a natural fiber or if it's better, maybe more breathable.

I personally don't like the adaptatoe.  They fade, get dingy, and stain.  The tan aren't as bad as the pink but both are bad.  They were the required tights for performances for a while where DD danced.

We've had the same few pairs for over a year washing regularly and never noticed any of that. I'm going to go ahead and try the convertible ones. I think one of her costumes this year has a low enough cut out that the adaptatoe might show.

DD never wore either of the Bloch tights you referenced.  She almost always wore Capezio of some sort, but she grew to love and wear only these tights to ballet.  I would have thought that they had some cotton in them as she always remarked how soft they were fresh out the package, but they don't have any.

Maybe now that she's grown those might fit, but until now only the bloch waistband would stay up on her. The others sagged by the end of class.
