Cheerleader Uniform Fashions Are Changing

As many of you gear up this fall to either cheer on your favorite teams or to get your cheerleader costume ready for Halloween, cheerleader uniforms are making the news.

In Florida earlier this year, cheerleaders had to get special permission to wear their skirts on game day, because the uniforms were deemed to be too sexy for the school’s new dress code.

In a related story, cheerleaders in Connecticut requested school officials to make their uniforms more conservative from the skimpy midriff-baring tops & short skirts.

The Connecticut cheerleaders’ demands are related to a recent study of university cheerleaders in America which stated that college cheerleaders whose uniforms exposed midriffs faced a significantly higher risk of developing eating disorders.

Society’s standards and cheerleaders self image are both contributing to the changing fashions and standards which will affect what we’ll see cheerleaders wearing in the years to come.

Which way do you hope the cheerleader skirts & tops go? Up or down?
