This is a standard basic black leotard. It is a blend of 95% cotton and 5% lycra spandex. It is very soft and my daughter says it is comfortable. It does have an adjustable string at the neck which I tied and cut because the loose string irritates my daughter. She wore it to ballet class with a tutu and paired it with gym shorts to wear for tumbling class. It is a great quality leotard at an affordable price.
