alright, so we got new comp. leo's and they REALLY ride up during routines. it is the right size and everything. im sure im not the only gymnast that has this issue with leo's. but is there really anything i can do to help not have it ride up? it gets really disteracting during the routines...

any advice, or anything?

try this website: www.myhappydance.com and click on gymnastics - practice/competition link. They have something called leostay strips and some other kind of roll-on that's supposed to help your leo not ride. My dd hasn't tried this yet but I know you're not alone! Good luck!

10.0 carries the glue and the strips. Also, most stores that carry cheerleading supplies has these adhesive strips too. I have heard of gymnasts using hairspray to keep the leos in place.

spray adhesive you can get at a craft store. kind of sticky but works. We called it "booty glue!"

I've always used Elmers gluesticks. They work just fine and are much cheaper than the specialty products on the market.

a couple of teams including us had the same problem. our leos are from GK. We told them about it and they said they cut the leos wrong. So we told them about it and we sent back the leos and they gave us brand new ones. They fit great now!!! They didn't charge us anything since it was their screw up!!

Be careful with the hairspray, it can damage hologram fabric. So can deoderant, and spray glitter. Crystal deoderant seems safe so far.
