Mobile Any dance parents out there? Leotards with support

Dd loves her dance and has started to audition and attend open days etc. She loves to wear quirky leotards as she hopes this will make her more memorable. However she is "blessed" up top and so needs to wear a bra. Has anyone come across leotard brands with decent built in support? All I can find at the moment is the shelf support which isn't enough for her.

Capezio do some with bratek but they tend to be standard leotards and not fancy ones.

DD tends to pick ones she can wear a bra under or picks ones with an open back and then wear a sports bra that coordinates with the leotard.

Dd is a competitive gymnast who also dances so wears leotards every single day. She often chooses bras that have fancy sort of strap patterns on the back if you know the ones I mean. Making it part of the outfit? She is petite up top though.
Have you looked at the dance bras to see if any are supportive enough? They come in skin tones and have clear shoulder straps. Some also have clear back strap or low back adjusters.

Are you anyway handy with a needle and thread? I used to deconstruct bras and sew them into my niece's dance costumes

Not to that level sadly. I wish I was as it would make things easier.

Thank you for your advice. The Dance bras all seem to be in S/M/L rather than bra sizes and she has a very small back but large cup so not sure what the best fit would be for her. Might have to order a few to try.

The dance bras are quite soft. My dd used to use them for skating but they are no longer supportive enough. She now choose skating dresses that can accommodate a sports bra, or wears a black or flesh coloured bra that is visible and coordinates with her outfit.
