    mid-rift, underspinning rules

    1) Do not wear clothing which does not fully cover the mid-rift, lower back.

    2) There will be underspinning rules about what is either acceptable or unacceptable behaviour.

    ************************************************** ***********

    What are the meanings of the highlighted phrases in the above sentences?

    So long as they have a physical anatomy between the ribcage and the pelvic girdle, then yes, they have a midriff.
