Judging Criteria

Figure is a class of physique competition judged equally on symmetry, tone, and beauty/stage presence. Athletes wear two-piece figure suit; thongs or t-back bottoms are not allowed. The suit may be embellished with rhinestones, sparkles, or sequins for added effect. High heeled shoes are required. Jewelry and body piercing is allowed but must not be offensive or obscure the physique.

Athletes Are Judged In Two Rounds:

1. Symmetry takes into account balance and proportion; figures should be symmetrically balanced with no one body part overpowering the rest of the figure.

2. Tone focuses on good muscle tone; leanness and muscle development is expected, however competitors must not be over conditioned as in the Bodybuilding or Fit Body divisions.

Stage Walk & Presentation may be used to break a tie.
