Tips to save on Competition tights: choose color and style etc

In this issue we will discuss:

  • Choosing color of tights suitable for your skin tone.
  • Lengthening the life of competition tights.
  • Keeping warm on competition day.
 

HOW TO CHOOSE A TIGHT COLOR THAT'S SUITABLE FOR MY SKIN TONE?
There are 3 popular performance tight colors: CaramelSuntan, and Light tan

Skin tone and color of tights:
1. Healthy/Fair: Caramel
2. Healthy/Tanned: Suntan
3. Fair with cool undertone(Pink/blue/purple): Caramel/Suntan
4. Fair with warm/neutral undertone(Peach/yellow): Caramel/Light Tan
To summarise, Caramel is the most versatile color suitable for almost all skin tones except very tanned skin tones. It also looks great with most dresses. It is best to avoid Suntan if you have pink/red/orange toned dresses.

Examples of Olympians wearing different colored tights:

 
Skater wearing caramel tights.
Skater wearing suntan tights.
Skater wearing Light Tan tights.
 
HOW TO STRENGTHEN THE LIFE OF MY TIGHTS AND PREVENT LADDERING?
Over the boot tights tend to get damaged around the area where it has contact with the eyelets on your boots. To prevent this issue - use boot covers. Wear a layer of Beige Lycra boot covers under your over-the-boot tights, before pulling your tights over the boot. This is good for covering up imperfections on current damages and also to prevents future damage.
 
HOW TO KEEP WARM IN COMPETITION?
We all know it gets so cold when you compete in a colder/outdoor rink with a thin layer of leotard and tights. This is where the Bamboo tights come in handy. These tights are super warm and comfy, they are made of natural bamboo material and are fleece-lined, perfect as an underlay and you can wear your shimmering sparkly performance tights on top! Seasoned skaters know to wear these underneath their performance tights to keep warm and calm their nerves. Click below to shop Bamboo tights:
