    I want to see the difference between normal stones, and swarovski crystals... is the overall look that much different? Im sure it is, or it wouldnt be that big of a deal, i just want to see an example.

    I'd be worried about rhinestones falling off regardless..but if you're paying premium for stones I'd worry a bit more too lol

    I'd be thinking 'You'd better find a way to permanently mesh the crystal into the atomic makeup of the fabric..just sayin. I'm not losing ONE of those..' lol

    If thats the case then I will be the girl searching the floors at the competitions so I can collect enough fallen off crystals to make me a shiny new phone case! Those cases cost $200!

    I totally get that it's based off of their flag, but it's just too shiny for me. And I'm not really liking where the southern most star lands, especially when the skirt lies flat.....

    Haha yeah I think that may be right! That for me is part of the reason that I like it :)

    I'd never thought about it before, but since all the comments here saying that same thing, I now notice that... and yeah, I agree, it's a bit odd!

    Oh I know they're more expensive and sparkly - I swear they look like the uniforms have lights on them. I just know a lot of teams use them so I didn't understand why she was surprised. I think I know more teams that do use them than don't, but I only know around here.

    I haven't ever had a uniform from varsity so I don't know about theirs, but the ones from GK did not come off. We had the uniforms 2 seasons (and the gym is using them a third season) and neither of my cp's lost even one stone. I don't know how they attach them but whatever it is it works! So you should be safe. :)

    Either way I absolutely LOOOOOOVE your uni. I don't usually like sublimated, but if you're going to do it, that's how. Love love love. There's not one thing I don't like about it.

    Re: the Aussie Dream Girls old uniform. The girls are mostly over 18 and the design didn't have the star exactly there so they didn't notice until the uniforms arrived. They fondly called it their star-gina :D I was never a fan until I saw it under lights and it really looked awesome. Helps that the dream girls are a good-looking team as well.

    CP has lost quite a few off of hers :( Mainly on the sleeves and I think its due to her being caught in various cradles. The friction on the arms rubbing on others. I have had them replaced once but they soon went missing again after a few more comps.

    You're probably right about why they fell off - have her bases lost them as well lol? Still quite annoying. How much do your uniforms go for?

    The bases may have lost one or two but my cp seems to have lost the most.... Unis run like $325. We have an official gym bedazzler mom that blings all our gym stuff and I had her replace them!
