With the World Championships less than three month away, I’ll take another look at the best negligibility of gymnastics – leotards. Who might wear what on the podium? And which leotards should better not leave the gym at home?
I searched for the prettiest, funniest and – yes, ugliest – leotards never worn before, designed by the three big brands: Milano, Christian Moreau and GK. Moreau designs only one collection per year (+ one sleeveless summer collection which doesn’t really differ from the main collection), so there are more leotards from Milano and GK – especially GK has a new collection for every occasion (valentine, breast cancer, back to school etc.).
Can you really open the zipper? 😉 If Tina Erceg didn’t chose her leo yet, this might be an option.
Yes, that’s exactly what I’ve missed all the time. Now non-gymnastics-related people will not only wonder if you work out in a swimsuit – now they’ll know.
I’m glad they didn’t force Marissa, Beth or Rebecca to wear them.
If the US-team would wear Milano and if they wouldn’t have somehow forgotten that the US-flag IS NOT pink, they could actually choose this one for the Worlds and I wouldn’t even mind if they add some rhinestones.
Well, maybe that’s another option for Sandra Izbasa, now that we know she’ll comeback soon.
It looks as if she just had a serious injury – crashed after a pak on UB – and bleeds all over her new white leotard.
Somehow GK just discovered the trend of animal prints. They put them on almost every new leotard – fortunately only on the workout collections.
UPDATE: Obviously the US girls like this pattern, too. Just take a look at the leos for podium training at the US National Championships – there are zebras everywhere.
I can’t resist to show you my favourite GK leotard once again, this time in a different colour – the Russians team leotard at the Europeans this year.
