Every gymnast will agree that leotard plays an integral part in the rhythmic gymnastics performance at the competition. It is chosen carefully in accordance with the idea and music of the rhythmic gymnastics routine.The color, crystals and model are quite important, it should fit gymnast’s figure perfectly, look showy and at the same time it should be correct.

The International Gymnastics Federation gives approval to the rhythmic gymnastics apparatus in terms of safe gymnastics performance and training. Thus all the rhythmic gymnastics apparatus acquires the seal “FIG”. So when you buy clubs, ribbon, hoop or ball you can easily find the correct and approved ones. However the same can’t be said about leotards.

 Today a lot of rhythmic gymnastics leotards of any kind of fabrics, styles and design are sold. But you can’t always be sure about their quality and correctness. But don’t despair!

Our company has carefully studied the FIG’s Code of Points where the dress of individual and group gymnasts is described in detail, which allows us to sew any kind of competition leotard according to the FIG’s recommendations, choosing the best quality fabrics. Every competition leotard in our web-store is made for the comfortable and brilliant performance, it attracts the attention of the judges and audience and complies the following FIG’s regulations at the same time:

“-A correct gymnastics leotard must be in non-transparent material; therefore, leotards that

have some part in lace will have to be lined (from the trunk to the chest).

-The neckline of the front and back of the leotard must be no further down than half of the

sternum and the lower line of the shoulder blades.

- Leotards may be with or without sleeves, but dance leotards with narrow straps are not

allowed.

- The cut of the leotard at the top of the legs must not go beyond the fold of the crotch

(maximum).

- The leotard must be skin tight to enable the judges to evaluate the correct position of every

part of the body.

- The competition leotards of Group gymnasts must be identical (of the same material, style, design and

color). However, if the leotard is made of a patterned material, some slight differences due to

the cut may be tolerated.”
