Ballet Bodice - Adult 6 Piece Made to Order



This classic ballet bodice comes in eight Junior Missy/Adult standard sizes - 0/0, 1/2, 3/4, 5/6, 7/8, 9/10, 11/12, and 13/14.  There is also an option for custom sizing.

This style has diagonal princess seams which finish near the center front point.

Fabric choices include Bengaline, Stretch Taffeta, Brocades, Princess Satin, Satin Jacquard, Stretch Velvet, and Stretch Brocades. You may send us fabric if you prefer to use something we do not carry in stock. Not every color is available in every fabric.  Some can be custom-dyed, some cannot.  We will contact you if we cannot supply your specific color choice, OR if there will be an additional charge for custom dyeing your fabric choice.

Please Note: Base pricing is for an un-decorated bodice, with steel spiral bones in bone casings, piping on upper edge, and either hooks and bars or hook and eye tape with a double row of eyes sent with the bodice for you to attach once you have fit the bodice on the dancer. Invisible mesh shoulder straps are sewn on at the front. You will need to sew them to the back of the bodice once they are fit on the dancer. 

Although sized by standard chest and waist measurements, we will need other measurements for a custom-sized bodice. View our measurement chart.

We recommend dry cleaning the bodice when needed, OR washing it by hand in cold water, or in the machine in a laundry bag on the delicate cycle with cold water. If decorated, the embellishment overlay may need to be removed when cleaning, depending on trims and embellishments used. We will tell you if this is the case. 

All bodices are made with one-inch side seams, and 3-inches at the center back for ease of alteration. Other seams are half-inch.  

Skin-tone mesh center-front insets are optional.

To add embellishment to your order, you will need to email to discuss all the options. 

Allow 6-12 weeks for delivery, as these bodices are custom-made when ordered. Amount of time needed is dependent on time of year and number of bodices ordered.

We have several base rates for classical tutus that must be shipped in over-sized boxes. Actual costs can run between $40-$70 in the continental U.S., more in some places. We will always research what is the least expensive way to safely ship your items. We will also insure costumes for their full value. This will add to the cost, but not too much. All custom costumes are shipped with signature required when delivered. This is for your protection.

Unless otherwise requested, orders shipped within the US, including Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and most US Territories and Military addresses, are sent via UPS Ground shipping (2-6 day) with tracking. You will receive an email with your package's tracking number so that you may track it. UPS provides insurance for the first $100 of an order. If your order cost is higher, we will automatically insure it for the total. There is an extra charge when we do this, but it is minimal.


We strive to ship in-stock items within two Business Days after we receive your order. (This does not include custom-made items, like tutus and other costumes, which require a lead time and are shipped when completed. Also, orders which include fabric-cuts or custom-dying may require an additional time, but we will always let you know how long it will take.) All orders are shipped FOB Charlotte, NC USA.
