A new word in English.... #2

Leotard.

It's a "skin-tight-one-piece garment that covers the torso and body but leaves the legs free" (Wikipedia). According to Norstedts English-Swedish dictionary it's translated as "gympingdräkt". Hm.

Well, I didn't do enough ballet in my youth to have picked up this word.

Having a girl toddler sure makes you pick up new things.

Leotard tror jag nog man säger i Sve också...eller har jag helt fel nu??? Har ju rört mig en del i balettvärlden i Sthlm. Balettdräkt kan man också säga...

Så nu ska din lilla börja dansa balett, gulligt!!!
