a. A backless leotard is described as: “The open area extends past the bottom of a bra line and the open area extends past the vertical midpoint of the scapula, unless the open area is filled in with mesh.” – both must be met to be compliant.
If an area is not compliant, it must be mesh lined. Any cover mesh, including nude and does NOT need to be lined, to be considered compliant.
b. Underwear (including sports bras) should not be visible. Add- (Clear, Nude Bra or coordinating base layer is acceptable.)
c. In addition to a leotard or ankle-length unitard, acceptable attire would include ankle-length tights under the leotard (that match the leotard or are skin tone).
IEC – January 1, 2020 – Elite Level leotards will go to FIG rules
Acceptable solutions are: Nude bra and full body liner would cover any open areas necessary.”
