Every time the Olympics come around, amid all the stories about perseverance, dedication, endurance, and passion, there is one fascinating outlier. It’s a story most wonderful, and one that isn’t particularly dwelt on for too long. It happens towards the end of the event, and goes something like this: ‘the Olympics are running low on condoms.’
That’s because, not surprisingly, athletes are sexual creatures. They train hard, focus on their bodies, and as a result, not only are they in top physical condition, but they have a lot of energy to expend. What’s more, because they work so hard, sometimes they don’t always have the time to release. So things happen during the Olympics.
It makes sense that athletes are highly sexual. They are also highly sexualized, which also make sense. Of course, it’s more so with women, but there are those of both genders that don’t mind being in the spotlight when the spotlight doesn’t have much to do with sports.
What’s more, the sexualization attracts fans. Now, football players have to wear helmets, but in the NBA, look and style is an important thing. Other sports, like tennis and golf, do well to show off your features because you’re not wearing equipment or masks, but you also have a chance to make a fashion statement as well. Visibility is key.
When it comes to women’s sports, there are many that feature attire that is more sexualized than not. It may be somewhat practical, but it also serves a purpose to gain attention and keep it. Sometimes the look is also stuck in the past and ruled by tradition, as is the case with some sports forcing women to wear skirts. In men’s sports, it seems more ruled by practicality, and the sexual component happens more by accident.
Of course that happens in women’s sports too. Because they are at their physical peak, they will be seen as sexually attractive to many, so it doesn’t really matter what they wear. Let’s get on with it then: here are the top ten sports with the sexiest outfits for women.
Of course swimming is going to make it, though for some it’s never quite as alluring as it seems. In fact, were this a list specifically for the sexiest men’s outfits in sports, swimming would rank higher as the fit, cut male figures in this athletic competition wear but a speedo. Still, in a sport where every millisecond counts, swimsuits are made to be form-fitting and light; they accentuate and shape the athletic body of anyone in and out of the pool. The bikini isn’t at all practical, but there are plenty to be drawn to watch because of the one-piece.
9 Figure Skating
Surely there has to be a winter sport that fits the bill; it’s not all about wearing the least amount of clothing possible. Requiring endurance, agility, grace, and toughness, figure skating too incorporates a component that is about look and style. Indeed, the outfit is part of the entire package in figure skating, and some can certainly be more revealing than others. Firstly, all figure skaters are immensely fit, which isn't always considered about the sport. Secondly though, while men often don pants and collared shirts, women have more options. That usually means skirts and blouses and other free-flowing, often transluscent and elegant attire that dazzles on the rink.
8 Field Hockey
While not exclusively reserved for women, field hockey has long been a popular and iconic sport around the world as championed by females. The game of British origin was introduced to the United States over a century ago, and through the years, the sport has evolved when it comes to attire. Predominantly and most notably women wear skirts while playing. Thankfully, they are allowed now to determine whether they want to wear skirts or shorts; it was long decreed that only skirts shall be worn. Women can decide what is more comfortable and beneficial, but either way, it remains an eye-catching sport.
Sometimes less is more. Well, okay, let us not pretend like volleyball features some incredibly modest attire, but relative to some other sports to come on this list, it does. We’re talking indoor volleyball here (that’s a tease for another entry on the list), and for women, that means tight-fitting clothes, including shorts. There are a lot of reasons volleyball is attractive to everyone: it’s an accessible sport, it features running, jumping, and diving, and of course, simple, sexy outfits.
When you’re in the water or on the beach, you’re going to be in a swimsuit, and that’s going to catch some eyes. The core strength and endurance it takes to be a competitive surfer naturally makes for a great beach body, and while the bikini is impractical here too, surfers don’t need to be modest either. This is one of the sports where the male and female attire can differ rather dramatically. Men can wear board shorts, often going to the knee or below, while women still feature the bikini bottom. If it happens to be comfortable and it gets some attention, then I suppose that works for everyone.
5 Mixed Martial Arts
Like just about everything on this list, the look of the game is going to gain viewers because less clothing is more practical, and what we have already are incredibly fit and toned athletes. That’s the case with mixed martial arts, a base and intense fight where only the littlest bit of protection (and clothing) is required. Again, this would be on the men’s list as well - it surely gains viewers because of its homoeroticism - but there are definitely male viewers who enjoy watching the female side of things. For women, it’s shorts and a tank top or shirt, but always form-fitting; you don’t want any loose clothing. It’s nothing particularly unique, but eye-catching nonetheless and enhanced by the sports sheer ferocity and passion.
Another sport where women where skirts, tennis attire is both often regulated by the club or venue hosting the tournament, as well as a fashion statement. It does seem ridiculous that some places control the look and colour of the what athlete’s wear, but for the most part, there is freedom. Eyes are usually on both men and women when it comes to what they wear, as Rafael Nadal and the Williams sisters, for example, are among those noteworthy for their fashion statements. For some male viewers though, short skirts, short shorts, and blouses clad on athletic women make for enhanced enjoyable viewing.
Let us first use this forum to confirm in no uncertain terms that cheerleading is a sport: a physically-demanding, intense, and competitive sport. Of course it too features attire for women that certainly catches the eye of curious fans. Cheerleading is naturally associated with football and basketball, as in between men doing battle on the field or court, the women entertain and amaze in suggestive, flowing clothing. Everything they do is meant to hold the viewer’s attention. After all, they dance, flip, and jump, all while wearing skirts.
2 Track and Field
As continues to be the case, an outfit is made all the sexier because of the body underneath. Athletes are confident and toned, and those who compete in track and field are no exception. In a summer sports played outside, sleeveless shirts and tight shorts are the way to go, and sometimes even bikini bottoms do the trick. It’s truly one of the sexiest competitions to watch, and many athletes from around the world have caught the attention of viewers while showing they have talent too. From pole vaulting to hurdling, long jump to javelin, you can’t go wrong with a game that is both exciting and alluring.
1 Beach Volleyball
When it comes to number one on the list of sexiest outfits, there is no competition. And truly, if this list were about male athletes, it would probably be number one there too. That’s because of the simply fact that what we have are incredibly athletic bodies running, jumping, and diving in the sand while wearing bathing suits. Skimpy, tight-fitting bathing suits. Practically, this is the right outfit – you’re on a beach after all, and it’s likely going to be hot, so the bikini is the right way to go. It doesn’t hurt the sport at all that this these fit females are as a result easy to look at. Beach volleyball for the win.
