Choosing the Right Ice Skating Dress
Each ice skating dress company has their own skate dress designs and fabrics which provide our customers an abundance of choices.  It’s worth noting, however, that one manufacturer’s figure skate dress designs may fit one skater better than another based on the skater’s body shape and size. Each figure skating dress manufacturer offers a sizing chart but sizes can vary from one skating dress design to another so we ask our customers to take into account all the measurements before making a final decision on size. Although it’s tempting, the age of a skater is not the best way to determine the best skate dress size, especially if the skater is still growing. 
To fit properly, figure skating dresses should fit snug but still allow enough room for the skater to move, feel comfortable, and grow.  Figure skating dresses are made of 4-way stretch material and so will “grow” with the skater to a certain extent.  The ideal fit would be an ice skating dress that fits snug (not tight) in the front with a tiny ripple of fabric along the back that will allow the skater to extend their arms over their head without the panty riding up or the sleeves dropping down.
Choosing the right ice skating dress can sometimes feel overwhelming whether it is a practice dress or competition dress. You may want to consider the temperature of the rink, especially in the winter months.  Some skater's home rinks may not be very cold; however, if the skater is competing out of town or in another ice rink, that rink may be considerably colder.  Perhaps a long sleeved skating dress or even an undergarment underneath may keep the skater warm and comfortable.  (You can find a selection of undergarments in our Accessory Clothing section).  We keep a very large selection of figure skating dresses in stock and many of our dresses are very "bra friendly".  We also sell bras with clear plastic adjustable straps (MO-2493) giving the skater an opportunity not to be limited to just “bra friendly” figure skating dresses.
