Beyoncé's 'On the Run' Tour Leotards: The Good, the Bad and the Butt-Framing

If you’re in the market for a sexy leotard, possibly one with a good deal of butt exposure, you may want to move quickly: Beyoncé has cornered the market and at the rate she’s going, there may be a shortage by the end of 2014. After wearing a variety of creative onesies on her Mrs. Carter tour, at the Grammys and in her videos, we didn’t know how much farther she could go within the medium. We should never underestimate the Queen Bey, though: she’s even topped her own personal leotard record with her latest outfits for her joint “On the Run” tour with husband Jay Z, which kicked off Wednesday in Miami.

There were plenty of things to discuss from the kickoff concert (the Carters show wedding footage! They dance up on each other!) but most noteworthy, in our opinion, was Beyoncé’s most butt-framing leotard, as seen above left. It gives a whole new meaning to “business in the front, party in the back,” and is not recommended for the average person at work. Bey also went for a sparkly surfer-girl vibe in a one-piece with a sequin bikini bottom/rash guard feel thanks to the sheer stomach panel. Then there was the “sexy denim cop” complete with denim garters (courtesy of Diesel), the “sexy burglar” complete with crystal mesh balaclava (and more butt-framing pieces) and “sexy ’80s video girl” in an Atelier Versace unitard with matching Medusa-emblazoned beanie. And we assure you, this is only a sample of the many leotards in which Bey performed.

Truly, no one wears a tight one-piece quite like Beyoncé (sorry, Lady Gaga and Miley Cyrus), and since she spends her whole concert dancing like crazy, we know she needs the full range of motion. Are you loving her leotard obsession, or are you ready for her to try a new look? Which is your favorite? And how about that butt window?

Shame on her, that thong is distasteful and not sexy at all. You are a mother now start acting like one and stop trying to act and dress like some teenager. Anyone think Beyoncé is trying to compete with Kim these days, sure seems that way.

Six years now and she’s showing her wedding pic. Yes she’s trying to compete with Kim. O im so private and be everywhere.

I preferred her when she wore clothing and used her voice to blow people away. Not impressed.

Pam on

Yuck! Her and Kim K should go away!

I bet she will be so proud when Blue Ivy grows up to wear her own butt framing leotard!!! So classy!

George Bush on

It’s wide alright, but not very nice.

Such haters and jealous people. Sad because you look like a grandma after having children? Go get a life, and stop hating on her because she’s rich and beautiful.
