On Thursday, the WNBA released the “Statement” uniforms for all 12 teams as well as warm up uniforms. The WNBA also released a video featuring WNBA stars like Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne, Seattle Storm guards Sue Bird and Jewell Loyd, Minnesota Lynx guard Jewell Loyd, and Chicago Sky center Stefanie Dolson.
In a video which you can see above, Bird mentioned that WNBA players want to wear uniforms have a good neck line and don’t show the sports bra unnecessarily. These uniforms do just that.
For example, the shoulder straps on the Nike jerseys aren’t too thick like the WNBA’s first uniforms from 1997-2002. And they also weren’t too thin like the uniforms from 2007-2010. The Washington Mystics have a history of their uniform designs over the years which show those trends, minus the current Nike jerseys.
And here are all of the team’s new Nike uniforms and their warm up gear below.

The new Nike WNBA uniforms all feature the same uniform cuts. The uniforms also have a cleaner look than the previous Adidas uniforms. For reference, here is how Seimone Augustus looked in the Adidas uniform in 2017.
Augustus’ jersey wasn’t poor fitting, but the Adidas trademark three stripes and the jersey numbering create a more cluttered look than the current uniforms.
