Requirements for leotards in Rhythmic Gymnastics 2022-2024

As the last code said, a correct gymnastics leotard must be in non-transparent material; therefore, leotards that have some parts in lace will have to be lined (from the trunk to the chest).

This statement is common to the last code of points.

The pelvic area (with or without a skirt) should be covered with non-transparent material up to the hip bones and a small lace or transparent area for connection/decoration is tolerated.

On this code, the cut of the leotard at the top of the legs must not go beyond the fold of the crotch.

Leotards may be with or without sleeves

The undergarments worn beneath the leotard should not be visible beyond the seams of the leotard itself.

The leotard must be all in one piece. It is not possible for a gymnast to wear a leotard and separate additional
“socks,” “gloves,” decorative legwarmers, or belts.
It is not allowed to decorate leotard with light-emitting diodes (LED)

On this code, a leotard with words or symbols is allowed if the design meets ethical standards and based on RG COP 2022-2024
Hair decorations were a point of controversy in the last COP. The hairstyle must be neat and compact. Decorative details are allowed but they must not be bulky and/or jeopardize the safety of the gymnasts. Hair decorations must be close to the bun/compact to the hair.

The penalties are 0.30 point one time for rule is not met.
