The Makers of A Figure Skater's Performance Wear

February 25, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 87

One of the most popular sports during winter is figure skating. The combination of dance and athleticism along with the beautiful costumes never fail to transport the audience to a magical place. Figure skaters know the importance their routine and their costumes in their performance.

Costumes are not sold in typical stores. Though uncommon, stores selling dance costumes are likely to have outfits that are suitable for figure skating. These outfits will be made from material that is light-weight and very attractive for a crowd that is meters away.

While costumes might be hard to find, practice clothes for figure skating aren't. Many skaters wear the typical athletic pants, shirt, and sweater to practice. Others prefer dance outfits similar to that worn in a ballet class - tights, leotards, and a ballet skirt.

Practice clothes are easy to find and can be purchased at malls or even online. Online shopping is a good option for people who are too busy to go scouring for practice wear. There are numerous styles online and with a click of a mouse, anyone can browse, purchase, and have the clothes delivered within a few days.

For performance wear, however, it might be more practical to have them custom made instead of buying them ready-made from a store. A person has more control over the design and material used in creating his or her costume.

The best thing about tailor-made costumes is the costumes will fit like a glove (given a really good tailor or seamstress). Plus, it is easy to adjust in case your body changes shape in the course of time.

To look for the best tailor/seamstress, try asking your fellow skaters, especially the one's wearing really well-made costumes. They most likely had theirs custom-made.

Other people you might want to ask are your family, friends, and associates. One of them are bound to know someone who knows how to sew costumes.
