Canny women have long worn dance wear on the street. The black tight is hardly worth mentioning. Caterine Milinaire and Carol Troy’s Cheap Chic laid out the code in the Seventies. The Good Old Leotard Company is still at it on line, with low prices, presumably the same brilliant quality as ever, and an interesting page about nutrition and fitness.
The emerging synthesis of field and urban clothing is blossoming at the Great Big Hiking Co-op, Deep South America, and Dinosaur. Dance clothing enables the pedestrian, supports healthy movement all day, and is the foundation of emergency preparedness. The brands and vendors I allude to supply righteous quality whose cost per use is hardly worth measuring. Two exercise bras I bought fifteen years ago have pencilled out at .013 cents per wearing-so far.
