This is a primary division. Final score and placing is based upon the combined total of Phase 1 and Phase 2.
This division allows for many body types, but overall the ideal Swimwear athlete has a “beach body.” This division is comparable to the Bikini division. This division is for the athletic woman who looks fit in a bikini. Her abs and her muscles show some definition, revealing very appealing lines. This athlete is able to achieve a medium to high level of conditioning while maintaining a very feminine and shapely silhouette. Swimwear athletes should not display deep muscle separation, muscle striations or an abundance of muscle size. A “beach body” look is most desirable.
Stage Presentation is a measurement of how well the athlete presents herself and displays her physique on stage, as well as adherence to TaMaarta posing standards . Judging Officials are looking for athletes to showcase command of the stage, presence and poise, and the ability to convey personality to the audience.
