My daughter is a high school gymnast. Her school just got brand new leos. I accidentally stuck her leo in the dryer and now it is way too tight. What do I do??!! (They have to give the leotards back at the end of the season)
For the sleeves ... tight roll a towel for each sleeve and shove them into the arm holes (while the leotard is wet after the washing and before adding the soup can to the crotch). For the width, do you have a shoe stretcher? Or a large can of juice?
When my dd's comp leo was too small, I would stuff it with something soft to stretch out the sleeves. I also put something in the crotch to weigh it down. I also had my dd wear it at home over one or two other plain leotards with no gems or sparkles. I would just recommend being careful with stretching it too much because you could rip the seams.
