About 80s Leotards
The popularity of the Kids from Fame and Jane Fonda workouts means that there are very few people who escaped the 1980s without wearing a leotard at least once. There are authentic vintage 1980s leotards that give you a taste of the world of spandex if you were not yet born in the decade and want to try out a retro style in your dance class. Dance leotards from the 1980s generally have high-cut legs and some have a thong back. Crisscross straps are flattering details that add to the charm of the garment. Both sleeveless and long-sleeve leotards are available, so you can find the right style for your needs. If you want a ballet leotard, then opt for a solid color in a neutral tone, such as black or soft pink. However, you can go wild with animal prints or vibrant red for a modern dance class or a workout in the gym. There are many 1980s leotards available on eBay, and while you are shopping, pick up a "Flashdance" DVD to study some cool moves to try out in your outfit.
