Leotard – a tight-fitting stretchy garment that can destroy a gymnast’s life in the competition. How so? In gymnastics scoring, the judging criteria do not just depend on how you make the best and flawless moves, but also depends on how perfect the leotard you’re wearing works throughout the competition.
3 Best Tricks for a Winning Leotard
When you make one wrong move, it has a big impact on the points. This works the same when a gymnast’s underwear sticks out. You will not just get embarrassed; your points will be deducted too. Well, you can go without it. But if you feel pretty uncomfortable without having anything under your leotard, here are some tricks to keep that thing stay in place.
Wear Skin-toned Underwear
Most gyms require girls to wear panties and sports bras. This is to protect them and cover their private parts. But, what they’re wearing is not something you see on the beach. They wear skin-toned, Y-back underwear. Using these types of underpants will make your score untouched as they will not be visible even during the most complicated moves.
Put on Strapless Bra
Kids don’t typically need to wear any bra but adult gymnasts have to. To avoid straps from showing when you make your routine, use a tube-like bra or a bra without straps. If you’re wearing a leotard with holes on the back, a backless bra is a way to go. Make sure you get the comfort you need when wearing undergarments.
Use Butt Glue
Butt glue keeps the swimsuits of most beauty pageants in place no matter how they show their impressive walks. Gymnasts use the same glue to keep their underwear and leotard from sliding as well. The glue is a perfect body adhesive and is safe for your skin and garments.
Additional Tricks and Tips
Never wear colored underneath’s. Use flesh or skin-toned instead. If you are not comfortable wearing a strapless bra, use one with clear straps. Lastly, don’t forget to use white and clear Smooth Grove to kill that embarrassing Camel Toe.
