{who are you?}

hello, i'm melanie. 

I'm a work-on-the-move Mom.  I'm also the Leo(tard) Lady, aka "LeLa." I started this business as a little idea in 2013 working from home with my baby.  We're now a party of 3 moms with our work site as a former Creamery from the 1800s.  

{my difference}

Leotards have not changed much since my mother took ballet class in the 60's. New, on-trend colors & ruffle sleeves have caught the attention of many little gymnasts, dancers & mommies who are looking for something a little different from their own leotards 30 years ago.

Little gymnasts & dancers love all of the unique colors that you can't find elsewhere. And the prices are what mommies love too -- at just $12-19, it's really hard to beat! Couple those great values with affordable, non-inflated shipping rates + fast shipping -- those have been some of the keys to success of The Leotard Boutique.

{my story}

I studied dance for 16 years. My parents worked really hard to afford to put me through class year after year. Dressing for class was an expensive endeavor too. When I created The Leotard Boutique, I wanted to provide leotards that were affordable, adorable, and well-made. I didn't want to create another barrier for parents to involve their children in such an important, healthy activity. Dance has had such a significant impact in my life and I've learned from it that persistence, patience, and true hard work delivers profound results. I hope that the girls who wear my leotards may share the same joy & experience in dance!


{psst...leotards are great for other uses too!}

Flower girls, birthdays, Halloween costumes, recitals, even for your fella's Superman costume are all reasons to wear a leotard.  Some moms love to monogram or hand embellish the leotards to their child's taste.  The colors are plenty and the options are endless...have some fun & we'd love to see your artistic talents in action!
