GTSAID: Accurately "dance dresses" generally are dress styles with "built in" trunks; however, there are styles without attached trunks. To differentiate, the following listings use the term "leotard" to indicate a garment with trunks - the vast majority of "dance dress" styles. Styles without trunks will be specifically indicated.

The "basic" element of most dance dresses is a leotard made of stretch fabric allowing, not only comfortable movement freedom, but also more liberal fitting selection than partial or non-stretch "basics". For those unfamiliar with dancewear fitting, the following guidelines should prove helpful. The following recommendations are for mature female bodies, but for growing children a "finger thickness" included in each tape measurement may be desirable - - as always, it is easier to reduce than add to a finished garment.
All dancewear sizing measurements are a full circle and are the maximum manufacturer recommended wearer dimensions. Measurements should be taken with the wearer in a comfortable upright position while wearing a leotard or similar form-fitting garment. Bust (A) and hip (C) measurements should be tape measured at their maximum, waist (B) at the minimum, and girth (D) with the tape through the crotch and meeting against the side of the neck.
Because body shapes vary considerably, it is usually necessary to select a garment size based on dimensions listed in fewer than all columns. For most leotard based garments the most important measurement is girth, facilitating the length and fullness of the torso. Bust determines the placement of the neckline, hips the leg openings, with waist generally the least important when making a compromise decision. When in doubt, select the larger size with the intent of "taking in" where desired, or telephone for custom sizing information.
While dancewear standards are similar throughout most of the established industry, frequently allowing a wearer to determine new purchase sizing based on "in use" attire size most above listed manufacturer's size charts are included below. The final consideration is the garment fabric. Generally heavier Lycra, stretch "vinyl", and "glitz" fabrics are less flexible. If in doubt, request assistance, swatches, or arrange for fitting garments.


While very similar, the following charts are the specific manufacturer dimensions recommendations.
