Confidence is everything when taking that first step on a competition stage, whether you’re a seasoned athlete or this is your very first experience. All eyes are on you, and yes, you’re already being judged. First impressions are everything, but so is the value of your suit holding up to the stresses of a long day both on and off stage. My goal is to make wearing your suit the last thing you have to worry about. The best way to build your confidence is to be a part of this collaborative design process and make YOUR suit everything you want it to be!

Because I invest myself into every detail of your hand-crafted suit design and bedazzlements, I ask that you please provide 3 months lead time when placing your order, as I may be juggling multiple orders at the same time.

Your Task…
Design Research!

  1. Look up photos or videos online of recent competitions (and the division(s) you intend to compete in):
    • PLEASE! Screenshot or download images that give you inspiration so that you can help me get your complete vision!
    • What colors stand out to you or catch your eye the most? What draws your attention and excites you when you see it?
    • Who has similar hair coloring or body features as you? What works for them, or is NOT working for them? Don’t just look at colors, but also patterns and connectors as well.
    • What aren’t you seeing that could add a unique flare to your suit design? The process of elimination works well here too.
    • Do you like a soft cup or a molded cup bra design? If you’ve competed before, what style fits you best, or what are you wanting to try now? Inserts to provide structure and shape will be included in your order.
    • Examine the bra center connector designs. How much cleavage do you want or need? How much spacing is ideal for your breast/chest shape?
    • Rhinestones, bedazzlements & connectors! In your research, what inspired you? What colors or pattern designs spoke to you? We’ll build from there.
    • Think about how that will all go together with competition bling/jewelry you plan to or hope to wear.
  2. Understand the requirements of your federation on the expected cut/fit of your suit.
    • Are you competing in bikini or physique/figure? See the breakdown of options below.
    • Make sure to order the ideal style and shape of coverage (more or less revealing) that is complementary to your body shape and helps boost your confidence.
  3. Visit your local fabric store and explore fabrics that have a 4-way stretch (can be stretched in all directions), and are made with spandex for breathability (think swimwear and leotards).
    • Matte fabrics are easy to work with and provide a great canvas for design, however, don’t hesitate if a Hologram fabric speaks to you! These are so fun to work with and add a lot more pop and pizzazz to the design canvas.
    • Take pictures of the materials and the product name/SKU information and send it to me.
    • NOTE: if you hold them up against your skin realize that with a spray tan, your skin will be oompa-loompa dark and your natural color is not a good indicator of what the material will look like on stage… so refer to the first step for desired results.
    • Jewel tones always do really well on stage – think purples, emerald greens, teal blues, navy blues, etc. (Reds, pinks, and oranges can be really tricky unless very bold.) But also, go with what speaks to YOU! This is your experience after all!

Suit Top design options:

Molded Cup – most common for athletes with natural breasts who see large changes in cup size during competition preparation, but also works well for athletes with enhanced breasts. Molded cup shape cannot be changed, however, its support is one of the easiest to wear and it can be perfect for maintaining great shape and comfort. Extra padding can easily be added to create a fuller cup and cleavage shape (from A to C), however, this style is not recommended for athletes with breasts larger than a D cup.

Adjustable Drawstring Cup – most popular among those that have enhanced breasts or those that have naturally larger than D-D+ size busts, though I’ve seen it work well with smaller chested (A cup) athletes as well, as it can be adjusted to shape and size preference. If your bust size has remained fairly constant in competition prep and you want to make sure you can have a natural-looking bikini top, this is a great option. The big advantage of this style of cup is that it can be adjusted to any shape and size preference. It can also be used particularly well to adjust for gaps in the cups for a smoother fit.

Bikini Bottom Back Cut design options:
Moderate – the most conservative cut, fitting closer to a traditional bikini with 1-inch more fabric on each cheek than the Brazilian Cut. It can be worn by any athlete in any league and can be a great choice for those new to competing and not ready to reveal as much skin on stage.
Brazilian – the most popular cut and is suitable for most federations. A perfect option for those that are looking to show off their hard-earned glutes, while providing more coverage than the Pro Cut (with 1-inch more fabric on each cheek). Recommended for NPC Athletes.
Pro Cut similar to a standard thong, this design has 1-inch less fabric on each side than the Brazilian Cut and helps to reveal more glute and hamstring definition for the confident athlete. If you’re feeling confident in your shape, give it a try! (Highly recommended for petite athletes.) This design does require bikini glue to stay in place on stage.

Micro Pro – the most revealing cut and NOT recommended without coaches or federation approval. It has 1/2-inch less fabric on each cheek than the Pro Cut. (If your federation bans “thongs” then this is not an option you should consider.)

CONSIDERATIONS for WNBF/INBF Athletes:
“Micro Pro”, “Scoop”, or other suits with minimal glute coverage are not allowed. The “Brazilian” cut or suits that provide moderate coverage are preferred. Consult with your coach if you need help in making an informed decision.

Bikini Bottom Front Cut design options:
Straight Bottom (Regular) Front – the most popular cut for many first-time competitors (and seasoned athletes alike). This design works perfectly for 90% of all athletes with the front rise based on your height and glute measurement, to fit how the judges want it to look on stage. Often paired with the Moderate Back Cut, these sit around the hips and have a scrunch bottom to accentuate the buttocks.

Scoop Bottom Front Cut – designed with an extra low cut down the front of the bottoms; great for accentuating someone with a really lean body and extremely defined abs. Ideal for leaner competitors (with a very low body fat percentage (<8% BF), or who prefer a very revealing look on stage) who want to be ab-focused. This front-cut style is not allowed in all federations.

High Rise Front Cut – ordered by athletes that want a more conservative look on stage, or ideal for those who want to cover up c-sections or other lower abdominal scars.

Figure Bottom design options:

Figure – the standard style and coverage for the figure and physique divisions, and comes with a high V-Shape on the front and backdesigned to sit high on the hips. (Can be modified to be more Brazilian or Moderate in coverage.) The criss-cross back straps are measured to fit your torso length and use clips to anchor them to the bottoms as they are secured to the top.

Figure Pro – customized with a reduced taper to highlight your glutes the best. This design does require glue to stay in place on stage.

Last But Not Least…
Measurements

Unless you’re visiting the area, we can accomplish measurements remotely! I just need the following:

  • Your height.
  • Current weight and anticipated weight loss.
  • Circumference around the widest part of your glutes.
  • Additionally, I’ll need the measurement from the top of your butt crack, between your legs, and up to the point at which you want your bikini to cover your lower abdomen.
  • Circumference under your bra line (rib cage) and bra cup size!

Pricing

Pricing is negotiated based on design specifications. Starting prices are $500 and are subject to the complexity of bedazzlement design and order timeframe. Send me your details so that we can discuss the next steps!

A $250 deposit for materials acquisition is requested once we settle upon your design order, and can be paid in cash or by Venmo or PayPal. Final payment is made upon completion of your suit. Shipping charges are not included.

POSING PRACTICE SUITS can also be ordered, based on your measurements. This is a great way to practice in your suit without risking rhinestones popping off during practice, and to get comfortable with the fit and function of your suit, at a fraction of the cost.

Inquire with Effie for more details.
