Skintight fit for fitness

The "leotite" of Helanca ($14) that Bonnie Prudden wears on the cover and preceding pages embodies those qualities one should look for in exercise clothes: ease of movement and a snugness of fit that reveals every bulge on the body. All clothes shown here serve the same purpose: (a) striped cotton-knit shirt ($11) with Durene jersey trunks ($3.50); (b) matching leotite ($17); (c) paisley-patterned wool leotite ($15); (d) Helanca dancer's leotard ($7.50) and "stemwear" ($6); (e) boy's cotton T-shirt ($3) and Durene trunks ($3.50); (f) wool tights ($6.50) and shirt ($6.25); (g) girl's Celanese jersey tunic and briefs ($5); and (h) red Orlon and wool jersey leotard ($11). All are of knitted fabrics and all clothes, including the footwear, are by Capezio (756 Seventh Ave., N.Y.C.), a firm that through years of outfitting dancers knows best how to clothe the body in motion.
