AskSportsFilter: How do female gymnasts, lacking the flesh-colored leotards worn by figure skaters, mitigate the risk of an inopportune fabric shift that would produce a Basic Instinct moment?

I have no idea, but that photo makes me feel kinda funny.

No kidding. If you were too close to that woman, you could be broken in half when she recoiled.

Double-sided tape + the collective will of everyone in the audience (except the guys with the zoom lenses, wearing loose pants). Just a guess.

rcade, you're assuming they want to mitigate a fabric shift, or that a fabric shift would be "inopportune". I guess it depends on the judges, doesn't it? Ha!
