In a figure skating competition, it’s all about the overall look, and how it compliments your programs.
Female figure skaters usually wear a dress or leotard with a skirt made of either lycra, net fabric or velvet. The super-comfy 4-way stretch means you can perform all your elements completely unrestricted. Competitors will also wear a pair of figure skating tights for insulation and protection while out on the ice.
Male figure skaters will usually wear a bodyshirt and pants combo. Competitive male figure skaters are not permitted to wear tights, so pants with four-way lycra stretch are a great option to ensure maximum range of movement while keeping to the dress code.
While nothing is stopping you from wearing your competition dresses or leotards to practice, you might find that it’s a bit cold when you’re talking to your coach or taking a break!
Most ice skaters also won’t wear their competition outfits to practice to reduce the risk of ruining them before their competition.
However, some skaters prefer to practice in a dress, giving them a more authentic feel for movement on the day. If this is you, think about investing in one or two good-quality practice dresses/leotards. This means that you’ll keep your competition outfits in top nick, and you can also opt for thicker material to keep you warmer during your patch ice and coaching sessions.
As figure skating specialists, we can access a range of training and competition leotards and dresses from top brands. Get in touch with us or pop into our Willies shop in Coventry to order all your clothing for ice skating!
