Blue and black long-sleeve leotard. The body of the leaotard is shiny and blue. The neckline seems to be a mix between a v-neck and a sweetheart nickline. It is trimmed with black velvet. A portion of the sleeves are covered with a black netting and are also trimmed in black velvet. The netting comes down to a point on the side of the sleeves, around 2 inches above the cuff. There is a rhinestone design below the neckline and along the shoulders. There are also rhinestones in various places on the black netting and along the velvet trim. There is a rhinestone design on the proper left hip.
The back of the neckline is square shaped and is trimmed with the black velvet and the rhinestones.
