I will be competing in figure at Worlds this month for the first time, and I am curious if anyone knows if the symmetry round is where you come out individually. I have viewed many of the youtube clips, but it looks like they all come out in a group.

Would anyone that has competed in figure for the WBFF mind sharing any info on this? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!

As far as my observations--this is not official...just me looking at the categories and sorting them out for myself:

Figure- the Monica Brant look. Muscular, feminine, x frame, lean and tighter than we see rewarded in NPC figure. (I LOVE the leg definition in the figure girls here!) Posing suits are mostly worn (but it sounds like it's not absolutely the requirement).

Diva Fitness Model- one step down from Figure, in terms of muscularity and leanness (some gals look like they could easily fit both figure and this category). Marketable look (I think that is the key to this division...would you appeal to a fitness mag). Muscles are there for sure, but not as large or defined as in the figure winners. Unsure of leanness...let the 'marketability look' define that, maybe. Bikinis (you can wear a normal bikini as opposed to a figure type posing suit) and fitness themewear (seems to be a much wider theme choice by many gals than just a fitness look).

Diva Bikini Model- Closer to the NPC bikini division. It still appears to me as though you do look like you workout, and you can't be entirely undefined. Shape to arms and legs...not flat as if they have never worked out. This is a beauty contest, as well. Bikini and evening gown.

You can compete in one or MORE categories (although I believe you pay per category)

These are my observations- absolutely not as written by the organization.

Hey girl! Thank you for posting this! I have been thinking about competing in the WBFF for over a year now but have had a tough time trying to find out info on the different divisions.

When I was in college I did pageants, would you say the interview portion of Diva Fitness is private interviews (one on one or in front of the group of judges) and/or a question(s) on stage? What kind of question(s) are asked?

If a girl were to compete in more then one division, how much time is allotted between divisions to change?

Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks
Audrey
