There are three different traditional "cuts" to wrestling singlets: the high cut, the FILA cut, and the low cut.
The high-cut covers most of the chest and reaches up to the under-arms on the side.
The FILA-cut is like the high cut but does not rise up as high beneath the arms.
The low-cut singlet is a revealing singlet, that allows greater range of mobility, keeps its wearer cooler, tends to be more comfortable when not on the mat (wrestlers tend to wear their singlets under their clothes nearly all day in some circumstances). The low-cut reaches down to the middle abdomen in the front, reaches down to the hips on the sides, and features a single strap that runs up the back that is very thin.
Low-cut singlets can no longer be worn at the Olympics or World Championships. A high-cut or FILA-cut singlet is required for this level. Generally, low-cut singlets are not legal for high school wrestling in the United States and likely will not be legal for off-season wrestling in the near future.
