Throwback Leotard Rankings: Arizona State

This summer we’re trying a little something new when it comes to our throwback leotard rankings. Rather than looking at single meets, we’ve decided to take a trip down memory lane for specific teams, taking into account a wide range of leos from different eras and finding our all-time favorites from a single program, as well as illustrating how designs have changed over the years.

Here’s how it’ll work: Our judges for the week will choose their top 10 and rank them based on their personal preferences. Plus, you’ll get a chance to tell us your thoughts! Did we leave out your all-time fave from the team? Let us know in the comments or on social media.

This week, we’re taking on Arizona State with Senior Pac-12 Editor Brandis and MPSF Editor Claire joining Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth for the rundown.


Honorable mention: I couldn’t do an ASU leo ranking without bringing up this leotard. It’s the epitome of mid-00s Arizona State leotard design. From the fact that literally one sleeve, to the use of the pitchfork tines for straps and the devil’s tail trailing toward the butt… This leo is just something else. If you’ve never seen this one before, you’re welcome.
