If a dancer pays for a costume, they own it. When a dancer performs as a guest artist often, it is worth the price of a costume (tutus, for example, can be very expensive). This way, you have what you need when you need it, and what fits and looks good on you. Sometimes, dancers can borrow costumes if it works out that the costume might not be needed, but one can't always count on that....Generally, companies do not like to loan costumes.
When my local dance academy was performing Nutcracker this year, both of our guest soloist brought their own costumes. He had a very nice outfit (from Kirov Ballet), but she had the most tattered dress for the parts before the PDD. I know she was borrowing that one from her company. The tutu looked very new and professional, though, in the end/PDD.
