Why are cheerleading uniforms getting smaller/tighter while basketball shorts get longer/looser?

Is it for aesthetic purposes or the functionality of the sport? Or both?

    I don't know about basketball, but cheerleading is using more tumbling (gymnastics) than it used to and a lot of coaches think it's easier to stunt and tumble with smaller, tighter uniforms.

    it's the same at the beach. Bikinis are smaller and men's swimming shorts are longer too. it is impossible to swim in those things. Bring back shorter shorts, just for functionality.
