Hello, all. Our team has a few plus-sized dancers and we are having a great deal of difficulty finding costumes that fit. Any suggestions or recommendations for companies that could accommodate?

your best bet is probably to order individual pieces and put together a costume from them. Not sure the ages, but I know we have some girls who are a bit larger than the rest, and their costumes tend to be things like booty shorts, black bra, and a white top over that. Or a black leotard and pants that have been embellished. Nothing super expensive or fancy, but clean and flattering to everyone.

Hmm all have to ask my stepdaughter if she knows where her SO got their team costumes. They had several plus size girls on her former team (she's in college now) and they had costumes just like everyone else.

Dancewear Solutions Balera brand is a good option if you are willing to order individual pieces & put together a costume from them. Their stuff definitely runs larger than other brands & can easily accomodate pretty much any shape/size.

where does your studio order from. We usually don’t have trouble getting plus size costumes at all. I can get the names of the companies if you’d like.. However I will say that the XL XXL costumes sometimes cost more than the standard sizes. Our studio does not pass on this cost difference to the plus size dancers, instead they balance the total order cost over the group.
But there seem to be plenty of options and we use them every year.
