It's simple. If ya got a bigger, curvier body, wear a bigger, curvier swimsuit. It's shameful the young girl doesn't understand basic commonsense. My guess is she's an attention seeker.
The school gave her the uniform.
I normally agree with most of your posts, but in this case... I can't. When I played competitive sports, the team issued the jersey they deemed "appropriate" for my size.
Same thing with my son who now plays travel soccer. I thought his shorts were a bit on the short side, but it's what was issued. I COULD whine and try to get a bigger size, I guess, but really, it's sports. Does fashion matter that much? Is it going to hinder his performance? No.

Nope, she followed directions and wears the school issued uniform.

I have seen HS swim team photographs where the suits fit & look dramatically different depending on the shape of the teen. Same design of suit but much different in appearance depending on if the teen is tall or short or thin or curvy.

I guess that's different than shaken or stirred.

What?! I missed that part! That's crazy.

I just changed my opinion, which is something that doesn't happen often. Thanks for the correction, Arcenal.

Are there seriously school sports programs that DON'T give/specify the uniform for that sport? Baseball? Basketball? Football? Soccer? Volleyball? Why would swimming differ? I guess because so many people want sooooo much to blame the girl and not the ish going on in the sport itself.

And "just get a bigger suit" doesn't necessarily solve the problem. Frankly, what I also dislike is any argument that the overall cut of these suits is required for the sake of aerodynamics. If anyone can prove that the drag on these suits is high enough to impact race outcomes compared to something with boycut legs, please do. At least then girls wouldn't have to worry about anything riding up and people would have one less thing to ***** about - then we could all just concentrate on the sport as intended.

I’m glad they reinstated her victory. One thing I don’t get is why this judge allowed her to compete, never said one word to the coach or her before her race, but let her compete and win before immediately stripping her of her title and humiliating her. Should not still be a judge in this sport IMO.

My guess is that she didn't have the offending wedgie when she got into the pool, but all the kicking, etc. plus the cut of the school-issued caused it.

Where the heck is the girl's mother in all this? Hasn't this girl ever been told that swimming with a wedgie isn't appropriate in a high school pool, whether it's done competitively or not?

I would happily give the girl and her coach the benefit of the doubt and assume they had no idea this might happen, but apparently the fit of the swimsuit was an issue last season as well.
