Fashion trends 2023 in rhythmic gymnastics (part 2)

Have you already read the first part of our story about fashion trends in rhythmic gymnastics 2023? If not, then start here.


In part 2 we cover more trends and discuss the sleeves, collars and thematic leotards.


According to our experience, sleeveless and short-sleeved leotards are popular at the moment. However, there are a lot of variations. In this year's international games, you can see leotards with opened shoulders and long sleeves.

This year there are clearly more high-collared leotards in rhythmic gymnastics. Collars are sometimes becoming the center part and the biggest detail of the leotards.

As a separate topic for discussion, we can discuss thematic leotards that clearly show the theme of the program. These leotards are usually only suitable for one program, but at the same time they accurately express the content of this program and make the program a unique spectacle.
