Do you have sales?
Yes, we have a shop-wide sale once a year, typically in the spring or early summer. We also have a sample sale once a year. Newsletter subscribers get secret discount codes and access to the VIP shop with exclusive designs.
How durable are the fabrics?
It depends on the fabric and type of performance the garments are used for. The mesh stays in great shape and does not rip easily. The holographics tend to retract a little less, but keep the sparkle throughout many types of performances, and lasts over a long period of time. The metallics are the most fragile, and are not suited for performances with a lot of friction directly on the area of the body where they are located.
My measurements are slightly different from your size chart, what size should I pick?
All garments are made from stretch material, so it's usually safe and recommended going with the smaller size rather than the bigger one.
