World's Prettiest Leotard Heat 4...

BEGINS!!

Okay guys, today, we are going to do things a little differently. In my search for the World's Prettiest Leotards, which I have to say, you guys haven't been as helpful with contributions as you have in the World's Worst Leotard Contest, there have been some consistent winners in the pretty leo stakes. The most consistent, in my opinion has been Anna Pavlova. She is nearly always wearing something lovely. And if it is not lovely, it's just on the dull side. I am yet to see her wearing anything even remotely offensive (if you have seen something, please provide evidence!)
I have a file on my compy of pretty leotard photos which i add to whenever i see or get sent something. Pavs, Khorky and Liukin seem to reappear the most, with Pavs winning of the three.
So, this weeks heat will be devoted to finding the best of Pavs. Instead of chucking her in all the mixes. I thought i would let you guys decide which won of her winners will go into the WPL finals. Good Luck!

  5. The largest junior size leotards if your body has the following measurements: Chest 36" - 37", Waist 27" - 28", and Hips 39" - 40". If you wear a size 12 or above you'll need plus size leotards. Fortunately there are many very nice colors and styles available that go beyond the basic leotard allowing you to express your unique fashion sense in plus size leotards and plus size dancewear.

  6. I liked this leotard, despite breaking the short sleeve rule.

  7. I love your blog I really do, but a black background with white text is really hard on the eyes... I know its your blog and whatnot but is there anyway you could work around the color scheme?

  8. here are some suggestions for pretty leotards :)

    perhaps i am partial to this one because i love the colors and i am from the USA, but I really liked the design, it's not cookie-cutter like so many of the leos today are (in case the link doesnt work, its the navy blue USA leo from the Olympics with the red and white flame):

    I also love these two new Russian ones:

    Also I think this British leotard is quite pretty using their lion:

  9. Some of them are really lovely but I'm stuck on the Patriotic Swirls. I think it was one of the best leos in Beijing and looked really good on Anna. So that's my vote :)
