Most of Rhythmic Gymnastics leotards have thousands of crystal rhinestones fixed. But the new trends are about sequins, drappery, appliques and even feathers. Here are some examples:
Ukrainian leotards include mesh as a decoration of their leotards. Eleonora Romanova, Tamara Yerofeeva and the senior Group wore leotards with mesh on them.
Sequins are the basics of a leotard. Before crystal stones, sequins were seen on all top leotards.
Drapery was not very popular but gymnasts such as Anna Rizatdinova and Almudena Cid introduced this kind of decoration on their beautiful leotards.
One of the most famous Anna Rizatdinova’s leotard was made with velvet. Such a beautiful piece of art.
Gymnasts like Aleksandra Soldatova and Yeon Jae Son include flower appliques on their leos.
Russian gymnasts always innovate. They even are including feathers on their leotards. Here’s Margarita Mamun on her “Black Swan”routine during Rio Olympic Games. This incredible leotard suited perfectly her ribbon exercise.
