Generally speaking, our platter tutus (Classical costumes) are worked in 3 different levels:
-Half-Professional Level (Cost-effective)
-Professional Level ( Level I/II/III)
II. Half-Professional Level /Cost-Effective
This level can be recognized from the product name. There will be "Cost-Effective" showed in the item title and the price range is from $100USD -299USD.
The bodice of this level is not so structural as a professional one and made of stretchable materials without hooks on the back.
Tutu skirt worked in a professional way, the net length will be calculated with the dancer's height and worked in layer by layer. Most have a hoop worked inside to make the skirt stand very well. Some without hoop, which will be mentioned in the description and also can add hoop with additional charge.
This level is popular and were selected by lots of schools and theaters to use for performance and competition. The stretchable materials bodice is more comfortable than a professional one and it's easy for dancers to put on by themselves without other's help.
But it may not be so tight and fit exactly as a professional bodice, especially at the waist part since we must leave some buffer around the waist to allow the hips to go through when the dancer putting on the costume. And also the skirt may not be so stable as a professional one when dancing since the waist is not so tight, especially for the girl's whose hips wider a lot than the waist.
To solve this, we'll offer an option to add simple hooks (hooks band) on the back of this level with additional charge. But if the dancer/ teacher request the costume fit better, we'd recommend to choose professional level.
Should you select this level?
This level is good for those who need a costume but have limited budget. Especially for the kids who grow fast.
We selected more better materials and worked more details on the applications but it may not so high-end look and delicate as high-level ones. Please accept glue, thread, and unperfected cut on the trims or appliques.
We do not recommend the parents to select this level if you have a higher expectation on the quality of materials and delicate applications like a costume of $800-$1000.
