  2. Those Milano ones on the link are all very old and not available any more over here. The men's ones have improved.
    The ladies on the other hand are going completely downhill. As commented above there are so many that are made to look as if they are see through with plunging necklines etc. I won't buy Milano for my daughter any more because of it. But then it seems to be a bit of a trend in the UK at the moment. Lots of gym parents think I am fuddy duddy because 'they are lined'. Yes. Lined with nude mesh to give the impression of being see through.
    But I'll get off my soapbox for now as I could rant for England!

  3. Sorry - replied to the wrong post. It's the first time I've commented on the new forum style. I meant the British team ones with the side mesh was when I stopped buying Milano. Although my DD does still have one of their velour leotards that is very comfy and good for bad gym days when she feels like she needs a hug. So I should give them that.
  4. Oh no I don’t like that either.
    Sometimes it seems that leotard manufactures try to put do each other rather than just make traditional leotards that are either pretty or as my dd prefers a bright funky/jazzy fabric but no nude mesh or random holes / straps.

  5. Those men’s leotards are currently on the Milano website
  6. I’ll be honest and say I’m a fan of the mesh. But- my DD is older, and I really miss her time in rhythmic, so.. The cut outs are a whole other story. Just a no for me.
  7. I guess that’s the thing, everyone has different tastes and personal preferences.
    I guess who ever designs the leotards we don’t like they must of liked or thought looked good.

  8. goodness, I hadn't spotted them in the digitex section. Fortunately onlyleft in the very large or very small sizes. But then that makes me think that they must have sold at least some in the middle age range :-O

  9. The medallion one is hilarious. I love it.
  10. literally NO comment about the mens.... lol
  11. My thought on these.... won't they get a stomach burn on the bar or something? I mean our girls can't wear 2 pieces like dance and cheer for what I assume to be that reason.
