 Post subject: Adult male dance attire question

I'm an avid amateur dancer and I take regular ballet, jazz and acrobatic classes. Normal dress code for men is a dance belt and tights, with either a t-shirt or leotard. Over time I grew curious on trying women's dance attire and found out theirs are much more comfortable: their tights are thinner and stretchier, and their leotard goes over the tights so the tights will never fall. I can see my body posture better too.

My question is, can I just wear women's attire to classes? Of course I'll still wear a dance belt underneath and my look is still very modest. I would wear a unisex leotard (not cami style) and white lady's tights (I shave so no hairy legs). I think I will dance a lot better in them.

Any thoughts, comments are appreciated!

I've tried -- in my way distant student past -- this and recommend sticking to having your tights over your leotard. Trust me -- it will look odd if you have your leotard over your tights. If comfort is a concern, then just plain tights and a T-shirt, and you can certainly wear tights that are not as "thick." There are a lot of products out there to try.
