Since 1882, the Danskin® Brand has proudly been synonymous with femininity, innovation, quality and superior comfort and fit. Starting out as a family owned business that catered to New York City’s dancers selling tights, tutus, and leotards, Danskin® soon became the standard for dancers across the USA. Today Danskin® enjoys status as the ultimate female active brand, both nationally and internationally. The label has evolved with women's lifestyles for over 125 years to create the best in fashionable, functional dancewear, active wear and casual clothes as well as fitness equipment including weights, toning balls and yoga mats. Be it stylish activity-appropriate fitness, yoga, dance, gymnastics, or casual wear, Danskin® is dedicated to meeting the changing fashion wants and performance needs of active women and girls.
The Danskin® mission is simple: To offer women and girls exceptional clothes for living. This includes feminine styles and comfort-conscious designs crafted in performance fabrics engineered for smoothing compression, moisture wicking capabilities, anti-microbial properties and UV protection, such as O2 performance, Supplex® with Lycra®, Stretch Tech Nylon, Cocona®, and more.
Danskin® is credited with producing the first nylon bodywear in the 1950s. Continuing their dance world contributions, Danskin® set the standard with the first knit-tights and leotards, plus introduced fishnet stockings and "Ballet Pink" and "Theatrical Pink" colored tights. This approach of adhering to high standards is universal to the Danskin® Brand. This commitment is apparent in the brand's active, yoga, gymnastics and casual wear lines as well.
Danskin® continues to be a premier brand committed exclusively to addressing the multi-faceted needs of today's active women and girls. Their fitness, yoga, sports, dance, cheer, gymnastics, and casual lifestyle wear covers a variety of body types, ranging from girls’ size 2T up to size 4X for women.
