Leotards at Nationals

Starting a thread to talk about leotards this week.

Chellsie brought back the flame design from 2004.

I love this family photo! So cool that Skylar is one of her coaches.

I always loved the flame leos and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Love that she brought it back in a modern way (even if it is pink)

ETA: Oh, I get it, pink cuz it was Wednesday. Works for me!

It’s an homage to one of Cecile’s old leos from the 90s.

A while back some old images/footage of Cecile competing was going around the gymternet and Simone said she wanted a recreation of the leo.

I’m neutral on the design, but I think it’s cute of the WCC girls to honor her.

Neither do I. That WCC training leo reminds me of a box of crayons or something. :crayon::crayon::crayon: Nice homage to Cecile’s leo, but I don’t like hers either. Meh.

It’s better than Cecile’s but not great.

It’s better than KZB’s recycled leo Bailie Key had to wear a few years ago.

It pleases my 80s/90s heart. Plus it isn’t all mesh and glitter pasties.

Yeah, I think Cecile’s was ugly and this new one is an improvment. It’s not great, but I don’t hate it. It’s nice to see something besides endless sparklies and weird mesh, as mentioned.

While I continue to long for the days of actual simple, sporty, athletic leotards, that 90s homage is far less offensive to me than most leos these days.

Which is not to say I love it at all.

I don’t like the style in isolation, but the way they seem to be having fun with it makes it fun to me.

GAGE gonna GAGE

That one is gross too.

I really hope that a future code prohibits cut outs and bling. It is so overly distracting and takes away from the gymnastics.

That is awful. Not even sure what to say…
