The temptation to buy your dancewear from a non-dance store can be high, especially when it’s convenient and cheap. In this post, we’ll explore some reasons why it makes much more sense to purchase your dance gear from a bonafide dance store like Inspirations.
You may think you’re saving money when buying from a non-dance store, but in reality you’ll be greatly compromising on quality. The difference can be quite apparent in comfort, fit, and functionality of the clothing. For example, we’ll use a bodysuit. Most dance bodysuits are made with a comfortable lining designed to wick away moisture and fit the body in a flattering way. Most “regular” bodysuits have no lining, and are made from cheap fabrics that can chafe the wearer, trap moisture, and fit in strange and uncomfortable ways.
Having a knowledgeable staff member help you with dancewear makes a massive difference. Even if you have a high-quality bodysuit, it can end up being a hindrance if it’s not fitted properly. Interacting with someone who actually knows about the dance world and dancewear will make your life much, much easier.
Support Local Business
Buying from a store like Inspirations over a place like Walmart is great for the local economy. It helps your neighbours stay employed, is environmentally beneficial, and keeps a significantly larger amount of money in the area than nationally/internationally owned businesses do.
All in all, it’s in your best interest to shop at a dance-centric store over a fast-fashion chain or big box store. Come in and experience the difference yourself!
