➜ FEMALE COMPETITOR
Bikini, Figure and Fit Body competitors wear heels. Women’s bodybuilding competitors are barefoot.
The attire for bikini competitors is usually very low-cut, separate two-piece suit. The suit can include a printed design with fringes, lace, sparkle or fluorescents that are in good taste.
The other three categories wear connected suits. This means that instead of the suit top strand going straight across your back and connecting to itself, it actually goes down, crosses itself in the mid-back area, and then connects to the top of the suit bottoms. In those divisions the suit bottoms tend to sit up higher on your hips and taper the waist.
Rhinestones or jewels on the suits are ok for Fit-Body and Women’s Bodybuilding competitors.
All suit bottoms must be V-shaped, no thongs are permitted. No Micro-pro bottom.
➜ MALE COMPETITOR
Men’s Bodybuilding competitors should wear a one-color posing suit.
Men’s Physique competitors should wear board shorts (loose shorts that come down to around the knee). Shorts can be of any color and pattern.
