10 NCAA Leotards We're Loving This Season

Gymnastics isn’t all about the leotards, but it certainly is a fun part of the sport! Seeing your favorite team debut a new leotard only makes their incredible tricks and flips flashier and more exciting to watch. So many teams are competing in gorgeous leotards this year it was difficult to only pick 10 to showcase, but here are FloGymnastics’ favorite leotards of the 2019 season so far. 

1. Penn

This Penn leo is absolutely beautiful, with breathtaking designs that call lots of attention to the front. The leo itself is so detailed and intricate on the front it hardly needs anything else, but on the mesh sleeves, the right side says “Penn” in rhinestones as well. We love this leotard and the extra flair at the bottom of the sleeves is our favorite part! 


2. William & Mary

William & Mary’s Tribe has always had beautiful leotards, but the team really outdid themselves with this season’s new getup. The gorgeous green and white work together perfectly, and the gradient design both on the front and on the sleeves make this look elegant. The subtle but still present rhinestones also make it not quite over-the-top, but just graceful enough to be noticeable as a favorite leotard this season. 



3. Wisconsin-Whitewater

This DIII gymnastics team had a gorgeous leotard that caught our eye last year, and their new one for this season is even prettier! We love the simplicity of the design, while still being just flashy enough. 

4. Michigan

Michigan has already worn a few different leotards this season, and it was difficult to pick just one to feature. The Wolverines seem to be focusing on lines and patterns on their leotards this year, where all they have shown to date have had bold, frequent lines on the front. However, we’d have to say this one so far is our favorite, since fans love the mesh trend lately, and this leotard showcases that design perfectly.  

5. Alabama

Keeping their leotard trends modern, Alabama begins its 2019 season with a standout design. The details on the sleeve are one of the most noteworthy parts of this leotard, although we are loving the amount of rhinestones and bold color as well. 

6. Oklahoma

Oklahoma’s 2016 NCAAs leotard is beautiful and still stunning years later. We love the “OU” in rhinestones on the back, and “Sooners” written on the sleeve to make it this team’s own design. The glamorous front and top make this leotard an exciting one and really make floor routines pop with its flashy design. 



7. UCLA

Known to be a team that carefully chooses both its leotards and warm-up apparel, UCLA always makes any list of beautiful NCAA leotards. Although the Bruins have already shown a few different leotards in 2019, this gorgeous lace leotard is the one gymnastics fans noticed as unique. 

8. Arkansas

The Razorbacks’ new leotard, debuted at the end of January, is absolutely stunning! The high neck almost gives it a more formal feel, which we love…but one look at the almost completely cut out back changes that perspective. The fun, barely-there back paired with the glitzy front makes this one of our favorite leotards not just this year, but of all time! 



9. Kentucky

This team is standing out in gorgeous blue! Starting with a relatively traditional design, Kentucky switched it up by including a square shaped design in the front. We love this bold, blue, sparkling leotard!



10. Nebraska

This team has already worn a few eye-catching leotards this year, but our favorite has to be the ones the Huskers wore on Jan. 12, because they are so unique! The low cut in both the front and the back makes this leotard completely different than most we see in the NCAA.
