Not sure. Some lists have been released earlier than others. For the Europa, they released it one week before prejudging. Some shows we had to wait until 5 days out for a list.

I also wish this show were on Webcast.. I love to see how the different pro shows judge the girls on hardness and vascularity.. Its always hard to tell.. But with Gen and Maria being in First Callout I guess thats the look this time around (which I love!).. Looking forward to seeing the pics.. And to whoever did the makeup, I feel for you.. :popcorn:

Probably via her home country Chile. It's happened before, a competitor wins a local show here in the States, but is not a US citizen, so can't compete in a USA pro qualifier.

I agree. I've seen lifting like this before and none of the girls look great (or as tight as we know they usually are) here.


I noticed that too! Also, bad call on the pink blush...

I didn't even notice the blush. I feel Like the shape is almost diff. I had to look twice at the name to make sure it was her!

I feel the poor tanning & bad make-up on the #IFBB (https://twitter.com/#%21/search/%23IFBB) #PittPro (https://twitter.com/#%21/search/%23PittPro) competitors will affect placings as the physiques looked funky on stage.

Gen just doesn't look as dieted down as in the past. She looks fuller all over, not just in her face. She's a tiny girl with great skin--she can pull it off. For others? Fuller = fat.

Nope, not inaccurate. I know of at least one bombshell girl who wears 2 at once, because one is not tight enough for her when dieted down. Per her words. Maybe not instructed to do so, but there are TONS of Bombshell girls, who's to say some don't?

Actually at the Europa last weekend I was talking to one of the bombshell girls who stated that many of the girls do need to wear two a few weeks out from their show- one was painful enough for me, I can't imagine having to wear two of them.

Actually at the Europa last weekend I was talking to one of the bombshell girls who stated that many of the girls do need to wear two a few weeks out from their show- one was painful enough for me, I can't imagine having to wear two of them.

I girls that are NOT bombshells that wear them too... just sayn'

Thanks Ladies! I hope this trend ends. It can't be healthy to wear one corset for so long each day, let alone two. Like I stated yesterday keep prep safe (http://www.siouxcountry.com/showthread.php?t=20061). :)

I heard Bombshells often wear these, but 2 or 3 at once?

Excuse me if I sound like a dumbass but....what are these & why are they worn? :confused:

People believe they make the waist smaller if you wear them often enough. I have seen no proof it has helped any competitor.

Tightlacing.......

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tightlacing

The most frequent aim of tightlacing is a slim waist. Depending on the silhouette desired, the shape of the ribcage may be altered as well. Wearing a corset can also change the bustline, by raising the breasts upwards and shaping them, flattening the stomach, and improving posture. However, these effects are only temporary and will be lost on removing the corset. Indeed, excessive corset wearing has been claimed to weaken certain muscles, making it more difficult to maintain posture without a corset.

Can't wait to see the fitness routines on YouTube!

And on the squeems - yeah a lot of girls are wearing those now trying to make their waists smaller. Its was suggested to me after the Grand Prix because of how developed my abs and obliques are from all my aerial work. Why don't I just bind my feet while I'm at it?

I wish RX was there too. This is Jim Manion's show, so you would think all the usual sites would attend. RX was in Pittsburgh a year ago.

Stage lighting/pics can change how a person looks radically. The lighting for our provincial show smooths everyone out incredibly; abs and veins seem to disappear!

(Which is why we need to be careful about judging photos...)
