Dear International Figure Skating Union, Skaters, Coaches, Choreographers, and Fans. Over the past few seasons Figure Skating Costumes have gone back to being a bit too revealing. As a Fan of this sport for over twenty years.. I'm getting very tired of seeing skaters expose or use nude material to impose revealing exposure with their costumes.Many of the skaters between a senior and junior circuit are still at a youthful age. Think of your about your audience. Why would a female or male fan want.. Especially a gay one.. Which yes Figure Skating has a large gay male following.. Want to see a skater with inappropriate peekaboo cut outs, flesh nude tone fabric as a majority of your top, or worse yet.. the tragic V line which most skaters using it are going so low it's about to expose a part of the female body no fan nor judge should have to fear of seeing. This caused a spark over a few skaters.. At Canadian Nationals Veronik Mallet in her long program used a red dress with gold detailing which also involved a very low V line. What is trying to prove or impose really?? The costume was absolutely boringly vulgar. Marissa Castelli used a cut out in a diagonal stretch with an in or two over.. you'd fear of seeing her lower body part. Yet alone the dress barely the rest of her upper body. And then you have costuming that's way to adult for a teenager. Rodianova on the junior circuit with her SP to the Fifth Element was way to adult for a young teenager. The list can go on with numerous female skaters. A ladies Champion I'm giving kudos for keeping it classy with her costuming is Yu-Na Kim. Proving skating is about skating. You're costume should be an accessory with helping achieve the story line to your program. To the International Skating Union and everyone else who is participant of any sort to Figure Skating. Please be more aware of your costuming and your audience. Skating is about creating beauty and athleticism on the ice through competition and exhibition. Not creating a body movement of exposing or simulating body parts we don't want to think about.

Why Should People Sign..To the International Skating Union and everyone else who is participant of any sort to Figure Skating. Please be more away of your costuming and your audience. Skating is about creating beauty and athleticism on the ice through competition and exhibition. I'm not a Mom.. I'm not a conservative religious person.. I'm a openly gay male who's been a fanatic about Figure Skating for the past twenty years. I'm a former Club Divo who's worked in Fashion and promotes a message of inspiring Fabulosity on a daily basis through public media. I know a skater can look very elegant, beautiful, classy, and yes sensuously sexy if you're mature and adult enough... With out thinking they need to expose or use fake material to expose their upper body. And the International Skating Union to National Organizations needs to take note/enforce rules about costume exposure.
