No secret that Ballerinas keep their bodies in amazing shape and are often slender and fit. We've been designing clothing for Ballet and professional dancers for over 30 years and often hear from adult women how they want fashionable clothing but in sizing that many would consider child or young adult. The KD dance stretch knit fabric and petite sizing is meant for Truely Petite bodies. In the past 20 years so called "Vanity Sizing" has made it such that size 2 to 4 folks are ordering XS and smaller women are left searching for child clothes that look adult. Not everybody has this issue but for those who do we our smaller sizes will be a delight. Please see our size chart or write us with your sizing to see how our clothing will best fit you or loved one.
