    Should the Skirt be OPTIONAL

    Should Ladies have the OPTION of wearing a Skirt or "Pants" in any event?
    Their choice.

    I personally would hate to see the skirt go away, but I think someone like Carolina should TRY a "unitard" or pants.

    I'm pretty sure they do now have a choice and the skirt is optional for any event.

    'Required' is kind of a big word, let's say that from my point of view, skirts would be HIGHLY recommended and most DEFINITELY preferred.

    Even though I voted for optional for all events, I do think that if a skater is skating to a very classical piece a skirt would be more appropriate.

    Thank goodness skirts are now optional.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "very classical," Dee. E.g., I could see a skater choosing to take a very formalist approach to a piece of Baroque or Classical (Mozart, Haydn) music and choose to dress in a unitard or something similar that emphasizes clean body lines.

    I think it should be optional. Not all skaters look good in pants and not all music is suitable for a skirtless costume. However, it should be a skater's choice, rather than something forced on them.
