DTB Review: MoveDancewear Unitard

A staple of any dancer’s dance bag is a plain unitard – practical, unobtrusive and well-fitting. Another one has appeared on the market so here is my review:

The facts:

I’ve been hunting for the perfect unitard for guys for a while now. MoveDancewear’s new capped unitard isn’t quite perfect, but pretty close!

What I love about this product?

Initially opening my package containing the unitard I was impressed by the quality of the product: a smooth shiny fabric, the unitard feels sleek but also strong. Thick enough to avoid being see-through it’s breathable enough to avoid being sweltered in class (or at least delaying it until Variation practice!).
Easy to pull on, I’m impressed by the shape and cut. I’m pretty paranoid about my body but this is one of the few unitards/biketards I would consider wearing without a tee over the top. The cap sleeves make this feel like a complete item of clothing (rather than just tights with a vest attached) and it’s reasonably flattering. Having worn it for 5 or 6 classes now it shows no signs of wear at all.

What’s not so great about this product?

The fabric verges on being a bit too shiny and I find that the legs can roll up very easily by putting on legwarmers, stretching etc which can be a little annoying.
At £29.95 it is a little on the pricey side for plain unitards, but cheaper than the ‘premium’ unitards – and probably matches them in quality.
As always, my only wish would probably be a choice of colours!

Where can you buy them?

At the moment you can only buy this on the Move Dancewear site.

In short:

A great high-quality and practical unitard that I’ve used in every class since receiving it. Highly recommended!

Thanks for reading

In the interest of full disclosure, Move Dancewear provided me with a complimentary unitard for the purpose of reviewing. However, I did not let this influence my review in any way and all I have said above is completely impartial.
