We recommend hook and eye closures for greater growth allowance and the most security. Velcro can pick up a lot of lint over time that may affect its performance and hook and eye closures can easily be moved with growth. However, if the dancer is very young and will have trouble handling a hook and eye closure, you may want to select the Velcro.
Note: If you want to add an inch for growth, you need to select the hook and eye option – it is not available with Velcro closures.
Note: If you choose a Velcro closure, make sure to close the Velcro before putting the skirt into your ballet bag or washing machine.
