Wrestling singlets are basically the universal wrestling uniform that is recognizable worldwide. The singlet is the uniform that wrestlers wear to represent the sport they love. They weren't always the official uniform for wrestling but in the late 60’s, after being banned for a period of time, the NCAA approved them. The previous uniforms were shorts/trunks with compression shirts, singlets pretty much combine the two. They have become the ultimate wrestling aesthetic for they have been worn by famous wrestlers like Kurt Angle, The Big Show, The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, and many more household names. The wrestling singlets are one-piece, compressed-fitting uniforms that are usually constructed out of spandex or nylon fabrics. Fitting is tight and form- fitting so that grabbing is prevented for it is an illegal move in wrestling. And so that the referee is able to clearly see the wrestlers body’s current position to determine whether to award points or not.
There are different types of stitching used in singlet construction. Stitching is a flat-lock double stitching meaning the material inside of the singlet where the seams are is sewn down to lay flat. If the seams aren’t sewn down, they will chafe & irritate the skin underneath. Singlets are designed to be soft to the touch, lightweight and comfortable to prevent restriction and offer a full range of motion for effortless manoeuvrability and optimal performance potential.
