When you have an uncommon name, it’s SO incredibly hard to find personalized items, am I right?! I can remember back in my pre-school days, our class basically consisted of the same names… Amy, Jessica, Jennifer, Brian and Jason. There were at least 2 in each class. You could go into any store that sold personalized items and find those names in bulk.  But these days, it’s pretty rare to hear common names and these companies that sell ready made personalized items aren’t having such an easy time because there are SO many different names and SO many different spelling options!  So what do you do when you have an uncommon name?  You shop small!

I remember seeing a picture of a personalized leotard on Facebook and fell in love instantly.  LeoTudes features designed and handmade comfortable leotards for your little girls. Some are personalized but all are made using the softest fabrics. According to their website, they provide sophisticated and sweet leos, no matter what ‘tude your little one sports today.  It’s all such a great concept and I’m so happy I stumbled upon the small shop when I did.

Falynn absolutely LOVES dancing. This is her 2nd year dancing and the dance studio is one of her favorite places to hang out.  When I told her that this leo was on the way, she couldn’t wait to see it. She loves receiving things with her name on it and when she can wear it to her favorite place in the world, well, it quickly becomes one of her favorite things.  When the leo arrived, I couldn’t believe how soft the lining was.  It’s beautifully made and the fit was perfect. I love the scoop neck in the back. It gives it a little something extra and is the perfect accent! Needless to say, she was ready to wear it to her next class and got so many compliments on it from everyone.

When you have an uncommon name, it's hard to find personalized anything. That's just one of the reasons we love LeoTudes!

  1. What a cute leotard! My youngest has a less common name and we could never find anything premade with his name on it.

  2. This is so cute! I love the idea. Personalized clothing is super fun :). And wonderful for those with uncommon names 🙂

  3. Oh I love this personalized clothes thing idea! I think my niece will surely love this! I should buy her a few!

  4. What a cutie! I´d love to get personalized leotards for my little girls, although their names are not the most uncommon ones – Leticia and Olivia, It´s still not easy to find personalized items at times!

  5. First off, these look absolutely amazing! Second off, love that they can personalize names! How fun!!

  6. I wish they had personalization like this for adults. I would definitely cop a leotard with my uncommon name!

  7. So cute and fun with her name! My youngest is four and would love a leotard with her name all over it too!

  8. Wouldn’t this be nice for a dance teacher if the whole class had these on? They would have a name cheat sheet on the ready!

  9. What a cute idea. When she was younger my step-daughter would have loved this. We could literally NEVER find her name spelled “correctly” on anything.

  10. She is so adorable and cute! I love the outfit she has it really fitted well. Thanks for sharing this with us!

  11. I love it! It’s so cute, simple and personally, I believe every outfit is customised for each and every customer.

  12. I love this! My name is never spelled the correct way. I get Shelly, Shellie, is your name really Michelle, no it’s really S-h-e-l-l-e-y.

  13. Omg this is just too cute for words! And your little one is so adorable. I love the idea of personalized leotards. Am I too old to get one for myself?

  14. This is such a beautiful design and the balance of the names are just so perfect. Great attention to detail and I would def want one

  15. I love this leotard. I spelled my daughter’s name differently and could never find anything personalized.

  16. Wow, this is so great! My two kids have a unique spelling of their names and yes, I am having a hard time too buying personalize items for them. I am glad that you were able to find a shop that can made this for her and I can see how happy she was wearing it..

  17. What an adorable leotard! I love that it’s personalized! Such a great company for kids with unique names!

  18. I think it’s awesome that you happened upon this brand. Every child with a cool and unique name such as yours should have some personalized apparel. This is wonderful, and I’m glad she loves it.

  19. Both of my youngest daughters have uniquely spelled first names. Guess what girls you won’t be buying keychains with your name when we travel. I love this customized leo!

  20. That is so incredibly cute! She is definitely beaming in that leotard. I love her unique name too.

  21. Love the personalization of the outfit! My only concern is that it will be harder to sell those with names. I plan on selling old clothes of babies since they grow up too fast and clothes take a lot of space in the cabinet.

  22. I love this! I might need to get these for my two adorable great nieces. I used to spoil their moms, so why not just transfer it all to them!!

  23. That leotard is super cute and it really suits here. I grew up in a time where my own name was unusual and was always a bit bummed when I looked at things with names on them (like bike license plates) and didn’t see mine.

  24. She’s so darling in that! I had an unusually name, so YES, I totally get that and had that problem!

  25. I love anything monogrammed or with names. This is so cute for a little one. Thanks for sharing. Great gift ideas for the grandkids.

  26. That is such a cute little outfit! My niece would love something like this. She loves to wear her leotard all the time it would be fun if it was personalized.

  27. I love this! When my daughter was in gymnastics, I always shopped small for leotards. We loved this one woman who did leotards in Disney princesses. Natalie had Elsa and Belle. Oh, and Wonder Woman!
