An entire website dedicated to ugly costumes:

Those are all absolutely, unequivocally, hideous.

He had to hide his bugle somewhere. Props aren't allowed.

I've started thinking that the gloves on the Russian ladies might be a result of a lot of their spins/spirals involve them grabbing their blades and their coaches put them in gloves to protect their hands. I think the SP in last 2 grand prix events was the first time I remember seeing Lipnitskaia skate without gloves.

I see no such thing. You must have a rich imagination unless you can post a picture to prove it.

It isn't so much what you actually see, but what you think you see. And that is a nono. Adelina's costume should have gotten a deduction for giving the impression of excessive nudity. JMO.
Radionova's costume looked like a Las Vegas showgirl outfit, so inappropriate for a young girl and especially one as cute and appealing as she is. The outfit overwhelmed her, making her a costume wearing a girl. The overdone collar made her look as if she had no neck (she does have a rather short neck and should avoid elaborate necklines).

I think part of the problem is that she is currently all legs and arms.

I was digging videos of past, and noticed Mao's latest FS dress was on her fluff of 2009 TEB (the Vancouver Olympics season). Anyone wanna remind me which comp she recycled this from?
If this was unworn and unstaged one turned down back then, then Mao could be getting a new FS dress for the Sochi and wearing this only temporarily... if lucky.

Some have gone over the top; others barely go over the bottom

It must be so bothersome for you not being able to look up their skirt right?

Once again your comment made absolutely no sense, hence my other post from before.
Furthermore it was only an example of black leggings/tights with figure skating costumes, it would look even better with different colors which would bring so many more details to the costumes other than the hussy trashy clubbing look you prefer so much.

Regarding Mao, I often find her skating hard to watch because of her costumes. Not due to indecency but they're usually so distracting. Hope she does get a nice new LP dress for the Olympics. Not a fan of her new SP dress either. The old one was actually good.
