If your suit is deemed unacceptable at check ins, you will be scored down. Because of our high quality connectors, and perfected fit, if you have an Angel Competition Bikini you do not need a back up. Our suits will NOT break. If you are ordering The Petite Cut, we strongly advise bringing a backup back cut.

Comparison Round Rules 

☑ All Wellness competitors in your class will be brought back on stage to be judged as a group. 

You will be directed by the head judge to perform your front pose and back pose. You may be required to perform your front and back pose multiple times and hold your back pose for 10+ seconds. This should be considered when you are practicing your posing. It can be very difficult for an untrained athlete to hold their best back pose longer than 10 seconds. 
NOTE: The NPC does not want to see the arm off to side with the elbow bent and the wrist bent upwards or downwards.
