What do ballerinas wear when they're not dancing?

Is there such a thing as leotard style underwear? My googling is turning up nothing useful. If no such style exists, can I wear leotards as underwear? Or what is a great style that won't leave marks?

A few years ago I worked with a girl that mentioned she wears "leotard type underwear." We were discussing those uncomfortable marks that some pairs of underwear leave on your skin. Y'know, when the elastic cuts into your hips 'cuz your jeans are too snug (or whatever). I can't ask this girl, because we've lost touch, and googling only brought me a bunch of mothers asking if their precious angels can wear panties under their dance class leotards. There were also some links to "leotard back bras" which look just like regular bras to me.
SO... my question is, can you recommend me a source for leotard type underwear, or underwear that won't leave marks? Is this just basically a dance leotard, or do they have built in bras? Barring that, is it really just fine to wear actual dance leotards? I'd probably still have to wear a bra right? (40DD is not so comfy unsupported)
