Stomach mesh has made it to IASF last year at worlds. SMOED's was so see-through that it might not have been there at all (although it seems to match everyone's skin tone well, for once with nude mesh).

I'm done with single-season, crazy-themed, Day Two uniforms like Top Gun seems to love. Also, backless uniforms. And tube tops with one piece of string attaching it to the sleeves.

Crazy uniforms and themes have even made it to high school (at least in South Carolina...thankfully I'm glad to say that my own state hasn't jumped on board yet). Chapin's racing theme and Lexington's faux medals are the worst from last year. Plus the All-Star trend of practicewear + sleeves = uniform, as seen on some teams in South Carolina as well.

At least the worst uniforms in history haven't been seen this year. What do I consider the worst? OO5's dominatrix uniform, the French Maid uniform, the halter top trend from 2020 (Cali Reckless, Lexington High, Chapin High), the karate TGLC uniform, the lifeguard SSX uniform, that old Cheer Savannah one-shoulder candy striped uniform, and the 2021 Lady Lace butt bow.

Anything else? Trends that you hope die out soon? Ones you are glad are gone?

I would love to just c a uniform that is athletic, less glitz and let’s the athlete be the show not the uniform. It will never happen!

Yeah, I'm not against bling and all, just against impractical stuff. The uniforms seen at NCA College Nationals are blingy, cropped and All-Star style but also practical and athletic. Cheer Athletics does good ones as well. That being said, my first love and my primary focus is on more traditional (UCA and sideline style) HS cheer, where uniforms show our school colors, mascots and spirit, although I have learned to accept All-Star as well.

As far as the stomach mesh goes, IASF teams are going to need it because of different uniform rules at Worlds vs. other competitions. But still. If it's going to be that see-through why do we have the rule at all? To force athletes to pay extra money for a useless piece of extra mesh fabric?

I wouldn't mind the practice wear plus sleeves if the price for parents was practice wear prices. Like the GK elite ones where the tank, shorts, and sleeves are only about $100 base price.

YES!!! Two more issues I'm seeing:
1) Having different sets of practicewear and campwear needs to go out.
2) Backless uniforms should be illegal in high school cheer (ahem, Lexington 2021...)
3) Girls (particularly if they're a flyer) coming to practice in sweatpants. Wear something else.
