Gymnastic leotard is more flexible. Dancing leotard holds you in more, but you can only tell the difference with really expensive leotards. With the regular, $ 20 ones there is no difference and really, it doesn’t matter.
There really isn’t much of a differnce in fit or cut, it’s all in the material and style. Dancing leotards tend to be more velvety and frilly, where as gymnastics leotards are just basic spandex. When I was growing up I took gymnastics (12 years total) and always wore a black leotard.Answer by Super Girl Ballerina

Gymnastics leotards are generally fancier than dancing leotards, also they don’t have a skirt. Try these websites for quality gymnastics leotards:
Also, if your girls are older, I would not recommend getting a unitard (the leotards with the built in shorts)
Hope I helped. 🙂Answer by кυят ¢σвαιη
* can be made of: velvet, cotton, nylon (shiny), polyester
*competition leos: long sleeve, same materials
*style: tank, spaghetti strap, cross, low neck, high neck
*pattern/design: gymnastics leos usually have a more wide range of colors and usually have designs (not one solid color) but can be solid
*can be made of: cotton, nylon (usually cotton)
*dance recital leo: usually has color and tutu
*style: spaghetti strap, tank, v neck, v back, has more strappy designs
*pattern/design: usually is solid color (black, white pink) are most common
There are very few differences,the biggest ones being in competition styles. Very few people wear nylon leotards for either activity anymore. Velvet is more common in the gym, but not always, cami straps are very rare in the gym, usually seen more in ballet classes.
Usually the material is the same, and avoid skirts for gymnastics. Gymnasts can go with velvet, lycra, or cotton, no big deal. Cost effectively, stick with a solid colour. If theyre little, they might want to wear a unitard, as they get older, theyll probably want a leo with shorts.Answer by Gymnasitics girl
