    i ASKED to wear a full top, for alot of reasons. it ultimately came down to i was more comfortable in my longer top and my coach was more than happy for me to wear it.
    personally i didnt think i stood out because of it.. you can see it for yourself below though

    I couldn't even tell from the way the lighting is! I think more coaches should be like yours. If you want to, you should be able to! :)

    my uniform is identical except the top fades to white. my coach and my entire team never once bothered that i wore a different uniform. Many people actually stopped me at competitions to tell me how smart they thought it looked alongside the rest of the team. no point in competing spending more time worrying about my top than my stunts ;)[​IMG]

    I think having an uniform that suits your body frame is much better during competition than having one that is uncomfortable. I find an ill fitting uniform to be very distracting during a routine, but have never minded a longer one. I think that the variations are even less noticable when they mimic a coed uni.

    If it makes the person comfortable then by all means I just didn't know if some coaches decided for others that they would wear a full top. Or if half the team is more comfortable in full tops why not just do full team full tops to look more uniform

    We've had 2 girls do it in the past. We ordered them crops and they wore a black tank top under it to cover. I notice it a lot because my eye gets drawn to differences (and I know to look for it).

    We've never had anyone comment about it, score sheets or in passing. They're more comfortable and therefore perform better, so who cares.

    The guys have different uniforms and I don't find them distracting. ;)

    I used to belly dance and there were many of us that wore mesh liners to cover our bellies. They come in every color you can imagine including nude (although I preferred black) and I have after thought they would be good options for cheerleaders who wanted to cover their middle. :)

    That's the exact reason whay we gave our girls the option to get a black bodyliner. The bottom of the crop top is black as is the tom ob the skirt. We specifically designed it like this so it would be easy to convert to a full top look.

    Extremely valid point. I didn't even think of that!

    One of my girls wore a black bodyliner under her uniform this past season. Her mother requested it and our gym welcomed the idea. It made her and her mother more comfortable and that's all that matters in my mind.
