We have mostly white uniforms this year. They look fantastic out on the floor. But getting the red lipstick out isn't fun. Ours have red and black in them so you have to hand wash only in cold water, but while treating the uniform for lipstick and dirt stains (don't know how because my daughter takes off her uniform after every comp. and I wash it) I have had the uniform bleed. My daughter's uniform still looks clean except for a tiny spot where it bleed under the arm and wouldn't come out. Some of the other uniforms look dirty after only one comp. season. Also, since the uniforms are white under the arms, you have to be careful with yellowing even with wearing under arm shields because none of them stay and they slip and bunch up because they are placed on a seam. While I like the look of these uniforms better then previous years, I don't know whether or not it is worth it.
