Where do I buy male leotards?


For those who seek the ultimate freedom of movement, the leotard and or the biketard is second to none. But where do you buy one and what should you look for?

Both womens and mens nylon lycra and cotton lycra leotards  can be bought online or at dance stores. There are many styles to choose from, including the biketard cut to the cheeky thong cut.

Such as the photo above at Eleve Dancewear, and the gallery below.

Personally I believe fit and comfort take priority. If you can’t go to the store, you need to make sure you will fit into it. Many suppliers will make you a custom lycra leotard or biketard, providing you are prepared to wait a few weeks and supply your measurements.

Usually each designer will ask you to measure your bust, waist and then the girth (length between the groin to top of the shoulder).

 

 

For vintage lycra male leotards they can be difficult to obtain, mainly due to the fact that they were around int he 1970’s and 1980’s, but there were more women’s leotards made.

However with some shopping around on www.etsy.com or a quick search of www.ebay.com, you can pick up a good quality leotard which will keep your workouts interesting.

The problem with male leotards is that they have such low demand for funky wayout colours that manufacturers only put out blacks, blues and browns. See below.

When you compare the range and type of leotards for women, its a good thing that leotards can be unisex and can be worn by men, women and children. There is a slight difference between male and female leotards, being the additional fabric in the front pouch area. However, if you are wearing lycra shorts or gym shorts over them, no one is none the wiser.
