How much do Olympic figure skating dresses cost?

Olympic figure skating costumes are all about fit, flare, and a few thousand rhinestones. All that glitter isn’t cheap. The dress Gracie Gold wore on the cover of Sports Illustrated would set you back $3,000.  

Designers say dresses run anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 each. And Olympic contestants need more than one. It takes a wardrobe of shine to succeed on the ice.

 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
