Dd is 13 and does ballet and tap. She is quite well developed and wears sports bras as a daily thing, cos she does loads of football and cricket and finds them comfy.
But, she has a dance show in March and tells me her ballet costume has little thin straps. So she needs a bra to wear under it. Can anyone suggest a make that is really supportive, maybe if I could get her one with clear straps?

What colour is the costume?

Capezio and Bloch make various dance underwear and bras in flesh-colour and they either have clear straps or flesh-coloured ones.

We are asked to supply bras with clear straps for shows.

Do you get special dance/sports ones or just ordinary?
She needs some support!

DD generally wears a clear strapped flesh coloured one (26E, but wears 28DD) under costumes

I have previously removed beige straps & replace with clear ones

Same as KatyMac. DD has some with clear straps and some where I have swapped the straps to clear ones. Dance Direct are pretty quick at delivery, so good luck with those ones.

My dd is also 13 and tends to wear a skin coloured leotard under costumes. They provide quite a bit of support if you get a good one.
