It's all here in the FAQ.

Adult Sizes Small
Children/Youth Sizes (XS)

To keep confusion about adult vs. children's sizes when ordering, we use the numbers for the kids stuff and the Small, Med, Large designation for the adult stuff.

Available colors

Unless otherwise noted, all of our cotton lycra items are available in the following colors:
Black White Navy
Royal Turquoise Medium Blue
Red Purple Hot Pink
Tan Teal Forest Green

Stretch Velvet and Stretch Velour choli's and crop tops are available in a limited number of colors, based on seasonal availability of the fabrics. Currently, we have stretch velvet in black, wine and hunter green, and stretch velour in black and purple. Check the shopping cart for the colors available for each item. Not all colors are available in every style.

If you desire a color that we don't have listed for any of our products, don't hesitate to ask. Other colors/styles may be available on a special order basis.

What About the Mesh

Ah, the mesh! It's space-age. It's been compared to the steel-belted radial stuff automobile tires are made of. The mesh is available in 3 colors: Black, White and Tan. The white mesh we dye to match the lycra. This isn't an exact color match, (we wish it were), but as far as we've been able to tell, an exact color match just isn't possible. Under the mesh options in the shopping cart, if you select "match lycra" this is what you will get:

Made in the USA

Red Hot Dancewear products are all made right here at our little Houston workshop. That's why we can offer a variety of sizes and colors. We can also accomodate your custom requests, because we have total control over the manufacturing process.

We strive to provide a quality product, which means we don't just slap 'em together willy-nilly. The folks who make these unitards also wear them, and we don't like popping out of our seams anymore than you do!

Because we are a small operation with limited brain power, we do occassionaly suffer a case of the Oopsies and make mistakes. If you get a unitard that is labeled a small but looks like it could go around you twice, or find any flaw in the garment when you recieve it, then do let us know. Sometimes the elves that sew in the labels get cross-eyed in the middle of the night!

Placing An Order

It's very easy. Use the shopping cart for the easiest way to order.

If you can't use the shopping cart, orders can be placed over the phone (832-594-8630 -- leave a message and we'll call you back if we don't answer), by fax (713-218-7227) or mail (9809 Stella Link, Houston, TX, 77025). The order form can be printed and mailed or faxed to Sarin.

Payment Methods

Yes, we will gladly accept your money, as long as the currency is in US Dollars.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Paypal (send paypal payments to, money orders, personal checks (your item will not ship until the funds clear), traveler's checks and yes, even cash (but please, don't mail cash!)

What about shipping?

Orders are shipped on a "first in, first out" basis. We strive to ship orders within 5 business days, however, the actual shipping time may take up to 4 weeks. Custom orders and large orders will take longer to ship. Custom orders will usually ship within 4 weeks. Orders in excess of 12 units may take longer, depending on the items purchased.

Occassionally, things will get backed up at the sewing table and orders will pile up. If you need your order shipped in a hurry, or if you have a deadline coming up, please email us and let us know when you place the order so we can get your order expedited.

For most small orders, we prefer to use the US Postal Service. It's been our experience that the orders arrive faster to most domestic destinations with the USPS than they do with UPS. Large orders will be sent UPS ground, as that is more economical for heavier packages. If you have a preference, let us know when you place your order so the appropriate shipping charges can be calculated.

We are not responsible for items once they leave our shop. It is the customers responsibility to provide a secure and accurate delivery address. Insurance is available for an extra fee. Contact us if you would like to purchase insurance on your package prior to shipping. We are not responsible for articles lost or damaged in the mail.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE TO OUR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS: The shipping rates calculated by the shopping cart are for shipping addresses within the United States. International Shipping Rates will be higher and your order will be adjusted accordingly before your card is charged. We will be happy to get you a quote on shipping costs if you would like one prior to placing an order if you are outside the USA.

Shipping rates (within the USA):
order total under $50.00: $5.50
order total $ 51.00 - $100.00: $9.50
order total $ 100.00 - $150.00: $13.50
order total $ 150.00 - $300.00: $19.95
order total > $300.00: 13% of total

What about returns?

This is a tricky one. Because of the intimate nature of our garments, bodywear, like swimwear, can not be returned or exchanged once they have been worn or washed.

If you find a flaw in the garment before you wear it, we will gladly exchange it. Please inspect the articles carefully when they arrive and before you remove the tags.

Group Discounts

A 10% Discount for dance companies and studios is now available if orders are placed and paid for at the same time on the same invoice. If you place your group order through the website shopping cart, just drop up a line and remind us to apply the discount!
