Posing suit must be in good taste. As we know the suits are becoming smaller in the back over the years with many organizations so we will be flexible if you already own a suit and are unsure about the coverage on the back. If you are unsure about your suit please contact the IDFA prior to competition.

Note: You must have the appropriate posing suit for the division you are entered in.


Small earrings, bracelets and wedding rings area permitted. (Your jewellery should not overpower, or take attention away, from your physique.)
