Women’s wrestling is a fine mix of glamour and physical prowess. Various female wrestling variants call for different attires, but since this website is mostly focused on professional wrestling, that’s what we’ll discuss in more detail in this section.
Women’s professional wrestling is an entirely different piece of toast. In professional wrestling, women can wear whatever they like. The classic wrestling attire for women was made up of tights (pantyhose) leotards (bathing suits) and boots. While in pro wrestling glamour is definitely a high priority, practicality shouldn’t be brushed aside either.
The boots serve to protect the lower legs and especially the ankle from twists and shocks which are very frequent in the ring. Additional knee and elbow padding will protect the wrestlerettes’ joints from injury. Here are these equipment items discussed in detail:
- Leotards (bathing suits)
- Pantyhose (tights)
A female wrestler’s attire needs to be practical but in the same time very flashy and glamorous too. That’s why loads of shiny and bright colored materials are used not to mention spandex. Some female wrestlers choose to climb into the ring wearing what can only be described as street-clothes basically. Wrestling is supposed to be a visual spectacle, something far out of the ordinary. The spectators are not necessarily looking for cleavage or revealing outfits… they want glitz and glamour. It is expected of a diva. Not many ladies’ wrestling fans think particularly highly of such “street-clothes” getups. The fact that they’re impractical and often restrict movement shouldn’t even be mentioned.
