Coaches Corner: Online Leotard Shopping!

There are many fantastic websites where you can order leotards both for competitions and training. If you live outside of the country where they are made, you often have to pay extra for postage. Bulk ordering for your club is recommended!

1/ GK Elite (USA)
Gk Elite is the obvious choice for leotards. They have a huge range of styles and sizes for both competition and training. They also supply other gym gear such as shorts, hand guards, tracksuits and wrist-supporters. Gymnasts such as Nastia Liukin, Shawn Johnson, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas have their own line of leotards which they have designed themselves. Very cool! They are well-made, can put through the washing machine and are very comfortable to wear. Also watch out for the sales and 'value tanks' for something different.

2/ Milano Pro-sport (UK)
Milano also have a range of training and competition leotards. They are good quality and reasonably priced. British Olympians Becky Downie, Beth Tweddle Hannah Whelan, Imogen Cairns and Rebecca Tunney are featured throughout the catalouge.

3/ Sylvia P Gymnastics Leotards (Australia)
Australian brand Sylvia P leotards offer short and long-sleeved leotards. They are happy to produce customised leotards for clubs (like GK). Their leotards are very classical and elegant.
