Every stitch of every suit style is custom-made by Effie in Springfield, Oregon. Think of these as confidence-building suits, made unique to YOU to help your inner beauty shine just as brightly on stage as the rest of all your hard work!
Suit Top design options:
SOFT 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.
STIFF Molded Cup – provides extra support and structure to the suit top.
Adjustable Drawstring/Halter Top – 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 Front Cut:
Custom-tailored based on your desired coverage. Low, medium, or high low-abdomen coverage (best for covering scars or loose skin).
Bikini Bottom Cut options:
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.
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.
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.
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.
Moderate – a more 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.
Figure Bottom Cut options:
Figure Pro – customized with a reduced taper to highlight your glutes the best. This design does require glue to stay in place on stage.
Figure Moderate (aka Brazillian) – the standard style and coverage for the figure and physique divisions, and comes with a high V-Shape on the front and back designed to sit high on the hips. 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.
Men’s Bodybuilding Posing Trunk options:
Pro/Modern Fit – with 30% glute coverage, this is the cheekiest look for male competitors on stage – ⅓ the coverage of a classic/full coverage suit. Designed to sit high on the hips, the glutes can be accentuated with light ruching on the top back of the suit.
Traditional Fit – with 50% glute coverage – ¾ the coverage of a classic/full coverage suit.
Classic/Full Coverage – with 100% coverage of the glutes; an attractive and sporty fit for all athletes, with a 3″ hip.
