The Competitor's Guide to Glute Coverage
Posted on January 31 2017
One of the most important things to consider when ordering your competition suit is the back coverage. Angel Competition Bikinis offers 4 different back coverage options; The Pro Cut, The Brazilian Cut, The Moderate Cut, and The Figure Cut. Read on to figure out which cut is right for you.
4 Things to consider
1.Your leagues rules - the rules of back coverage differ greatly among the different leagues and states. Some leagues require 50% back coverage whereas some leagues have no rules at all. Talk with the show presenters or check the competition website for the rules of your league. If 50% back coverage is required, order the moderate cut.
2. Your glute measurement - this is the measurement around the biggest and fullest part of your butt. It is important to consider this when choosing your cut. The pro cut will look very different on 33 inch glutes and 39 inch glutes. We do not recommend ordering the pro cut if your glute measurement is above 38 inches, however if you really want to show off your assets, we won’t discourage you.
3. Your comfort level – this is an important consideration that is often overlooked. Remember that your family and friends and the entire internet may see your competition photos. If you are a little self-conscious of your back side, you should stick with the moderate cut or possibly the Brazilian cut. One of the most important parts of your stage presence is confidence, we want to make you the perfect suit that makes you feel on top of the world confident when you put it on.
4. Your experience – If you are competing on the national level stage, you most likely will want to go with the pro cut. For first time competitors, we do not recommend the pro cut. The pro cut is very revealing and can be overwhelming for your first show. It may be helpful to discuss your options with your coach or a current competitor.
Here are examples of what the different cuts look like on stage.
