Call these ‘reality-based’ tights. Gaynor Minden studied what pros really do to their tights so they can perform with confidence.
The audience will never know, but they cut away material to allow their toes to move freely and to reduce the hazard of pointe shoes slipping off. The secret is eliminating just the right amount in exactly the right places to maintain the classic look of a fully covered foot.
Professional performance tights with reinforced openings to expose toes and heel. Made from soft, super-stretchy fabric, in a choice of colours designed to look good under bright stage lights.
