What is necessary for Rhythmic Gymnastics Competitions?
Sport is not only a wearisome training and absolute lack of spare time, but it’s also great investment, as sport apparatus and costumes cost a bundle. Special outfit is necessary for rhythmic gymnastics performance. However, it’s not a problem today to sew a custom leotard. Certainly it’s also possible to buy ready rhythmic gymnastics leotards for performance, but it’s not so easy to find a leotard of suitable color and size for reasonable price.
That’s why we work for you! As we can create you a custom leotardconsidering your individual measurements, sew one of our already existing models during two weeks or immediately send you one of our In-stock leotards. Moreover, we can sew as many leotards as you like for rhythmic gymnastics team.
So, how to choose a leotard?
As a rule leotard for performance differs from the ordinary one in any kind of decoration (crystals, painting, spangles), it could be of any color and design the coach can offer. The leotards that we offer are quite durable thanks to the fabrics we use, so that after many years they can be exchanged between gymnasts, for example an older gymnast can give a leotard, which’s already small for her, to a younger one. The most important thing is that leotard should be comfortable, suitable in size and liked by a gymnast.
A girl should wear special gymnastics underwear of body color. It can be panties or under leotard. Though some people think it’s not necessary, this special underwear won’t be noticed under the leotard and it will make the girl more confident, moreover judges will be more loyal as the girl will look correctly. It’s better to buy under leotard if the mesh is the largest part of the leotard, especially for teenage gymnast or older one. There are also special tops for adult gymnasts, but they are not always comfortable. Special tights can be put on, which will make the legs look better.
Apparatus used at the performance should be prepared carefully. Hoop should be covered by the adhesive tape and make the gymnast’s image complete. Clubs (also can be covered by the tape), ribbon, rope and ball also should match the leotard and general outfit. Regardless of whether a gymnast performs with a rope or not, the rope should always be at hand. Rope is necessary for an effective warm-up as it helps to jump and warm properly.
Rhythmic gymnast must perform in demi-slippers. We have wide range of them. Geksha demi-slippers can be presented you if you buy a complex leotard. It’s better to put on flip-flops or warm-up booties before the competition in order not to make gymnastics shoes dirty and keep the feet warm.
As a rule performance make-up should be very bright, as the judges could see the gymnast’s face clearly. It’s better to use professional cosmetics, as girls often do make-up and this can provoke sores and allergy. Every gymnast should use only her own cosmetics and accessories, including the comb.
Gymnasts may do any kind of make-up, but she should do her hair in a bun or high ponytail as gymnast should feel confident and free during the performance, hair shouldn’t bother her. That’s why a lot of hair fixing products is also used. It’s better to do hair after the warm-up so that gymnast couldn’t spoil them.
It’s recommended to take some warm clothes which can be worn between the warm-up and performance, don’t forget towel and a bottle of water. Make sure you have copy of the track that is used in the competition, of course, it’s a coach who is responsible for it, but it’s better to be on the safe side.
