Stretching the topic slightly; but where would I get red lycra knickers or very short shorts?

DD's dance dress came without a leotard, so she needs red knickers/shorts

Where on earth would I get some?

How old is she?

Have you tried a dance shop?
Dance direct do cycling shorts or hotpants.

KatyMac Sat 28-May-11 09:46:43

She is 13

I'm not sure next shorts would move easily

Dance direct don't do red

Sorry I went to bed early last night - I was so tired

american apparel?

But not in her size

I have these in red (hot pink). Very stretchy and covers everything - maybe a size 6/8 in some other ladies styles would work?

Milano gymnastics catalogue sell them, and they are meant for dance/gymnastics.

KatyMac Sun 29-May-11 14:46:57

Thanks the Milano ones are perfect

Cheaper red knickers would probably work -

HauntedLittleLunatic Sun 29-May-11 15:16:35

Are you sorted?

If not have you thought about looking for betty boo (or is it boop?) branded knickers? They are likely be red and I bet you would find some hipster shorts style ones

strawberrymewmew Sun 29-May-11 15:16:51

Maybe try Primark? Also Debenhams will red boy shorts. smile

HauntedLittleLunatic Sun 29-May-11 15:21:17

Or a red bikini with shorts might be easier to find.

KatyMac Sun 29-May-11 15:29:22

Milano ones are £11 <gulp>

Bikini is a good idea too

Would it not be easier to just buy her a red leotard?
Much easier to find in dance shops and normally fairly cheap for a plain one.

I used to have to wear a red leotard for one of my dance classes and I was able to buy them for around £6 each.

KatyMac Mon 30-May-11 13:29:08

No because it won't fit under the dress not sure if that will show or not

strawberrymewmew Mon 30-May-11 14:05:22

You're right you would be better with shorts.

Seen in Primark yesterday they are selling red lycra bikini shorts, if you get her a size 8 I am very sure they will fit. Think they were £2.

Primark here I come
