Tights Top Instructions
Use a pair of pink or black tights: (See pictures below)
Step 1: Using sharp scissors, cut out the crotch along the seam. This should be a very small hole – it will expand once you put them on.
Step 2: Cut off the legs to desired length. Your tights should now look like a small shirt.
Step 3: Turn the tights upside-down and pull the tights on over your head, with your arms going through the leg holes. Once you have the tights top on, you can trim them to fit comfortably.
You may use old or inexpensive tights.
The companies and trainees of Ballet Magnificat! wear tights tops for class/rehearsals.
Why Tights Tops?
Tights Tops are an inexpensive way to provide support and modesty, allowing dancers of many shapes and sizes to wear a variety of styles of leotards. Even if you are wearing a long-sleeved leotard, we require a tights top to be worn underneath, for support.
They are a good way to use old tights and are cool and lightweight.
