Will it never end?? I will admit, some of these were tricky. They almost looked like different leotards. Then, upon closer inspection, I realized that THEY ARE ALL THE SAME DESIGN, and GK seriously needs to brainstorm a few new ideas.
Here are the top three most obnoxiously overused leotards currently in rotation.
1. The Freaking Pinwheel.
I touched on this back in September (before everyone else started jacking the topic.) I am over the pinwheel. It could have been cute, but everyone and their mother decided to use it, so hipster leotard critic judges their choices.
This is how you know it's time to move on.
2. The Ugly Starfish
Woof. This isn't even a cute leotard, like the Freaking Pinwheel. It is overused AND ugly. It looks like they all really suck at paintball.
3. Pube Curls
This was another one that I touched on in September. Obviously, most people remember Mustafina for wearing this during her dominating win in Rotterdam.
However, just about every other single girl on the planet has also worn this leotard.
And yes, even MIOBI..
The earliest exposure appears to be from Ivana Hong back in 2007, where she wore like 7 different versions of this leotard. I believe Bross also wore it that year (is that pic from Pan Ams?) It's all gone downhill since then.
Joining The Freaking Pinwheel, The Ugly Starfish, and Pube Curls is Surf Boob. While Jordyn and Sam wear the exact same version, GAGE and MLT make a few more... artistic choices. And by artistic I mean horrifying.
Clearly due to heavy Australian influence, Fucking Swirlies are as popular as ever.
I imagine this was the phone call that was made in designing Macko's leotard.
Jiani Wu: "I see everyone has been enjoying this Fucking Swirlies leotard. You know what would look great? #Hotpink and neon green! GK, can you help me?"
GK Rep: "We sure can!"
Now, these are Different Fucking Swirlies. While the actual swirls are smaller, they're still there, and that's annoying.
Now, our next example is special, as it is overused in THREE different continents. Continental Fucking Swirlies.
AOGC, consider yourself on leotard watch. Four AOGC leotards have been repeat offenders. FOUR.
***OMG. I am literally finding these faster than I can write about them. I looked up a Youtube video of Sloan for reference on a different leotard, and BLAMMO. Continental Fucking Swirlies.***
The following leotards, while not as violently overused, still have a match somewhere in the world. And that's pretty embarrassing.
I call this one The Fugly Jacket.
Next, we have Stringy Fucking Swirlies.
Kyla and Sabrina, both repeat offenders, are modeling what I like to call the JACKKNIFE!
Is there a GK outlet in Moscow or something? As Cher Horowitz would say...
"Do you prefer 'fashion victim' or 'ensembly challenged'"?

My final two examples belong to everyone's favorite ABC Family classic. Again, if you match Emily or Payson, it's time to rethink your choices.
I hope we've all learned a little something here.
1. I am always watching. And if you get lazy with your leotard choices, expect to be called out on it.
2. Don't jack my blog ideas. Obviously, there are many many many many MANY repeat offenders to be found. Go find those.
