SUITS All competition suits are custom made upon your order, except the ones you see listed on the " quick ship “ page.
NPC WELLNESS CATEGORY! There are two styles of bikini that may be worn. You have the option of wearing the current bikini style with connectors, or you can opt for the new wellness style, which consists of a V front bottom, that comes up high at the waist and back. These are generally worn with an underwire top., but you can opt for the triangle or molded cup. Check out our wellness page to view them! Very flattering look. Please be aware that if you’ve got the standard bikini, it’s NOT necessary to purchase the new style! ! CAUTION! - we’ve noticed some companies selling figure bottoms as wellness bottoms. NOT ACCEPTABLE!! Wellness bottoms are configured differently on the butt than a figure suit.
The price you see is all inclusive!- WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET! No surprises. No nickel and diming. No a la carte. If you wish to change connectors, there may be an upcharge, which is clearly stated beside each connector style. There is NO price change for substituting fabric or color, either.
We use PRECIOSA CRYSTALS, OR AUSTRIAN CRYSTAL
What we DON’T use is acrylic rhinestones DMC stones, or glitter glue! All competition suits are fully lined, with pockets in the tops for pads. The straps on FIGURE SUITS have 3 loops each for adjustment and hook onto the back of the suit with clear plastic hooks. Figure suits have a choice of 3 coverages for your bum- 5" (12.7cm) pro, 6" (15.24cm) rio, or 7"(17.78cm ) malibu. Photos of these can be viewed on the " how to measure" page, and on the header of each figure suit page
TOPS are generally a standard sliding triangle , but a molded triangle cup that provides firmness and lift without an underwire is also now available. Also available is a bra type underwire top. As the underwire tops aren't adjustable, I recommend a sample fitter be sent, if time allows. Unless a bikini is shown with the underwire already, theres a $35 upcharge. They have extra components and are more difficult to make. Top styles can be seen on the "how to measure" page.
COMPETITION BIKINIS are butterfly cut, and gathered up the back, in micro, 1/2 , 3/4, & full coverage. Coverages can be seen on the "how to measure" page. The suits are front lined, and the tops have pockets for pads. By default, all our competition bikinis now have a crystal clip on an adjustable band! If you prefer a tie back, please let us know when ordering.
Ladies, we do not sell crystal bikini connectors separately, without the purchase of a posing suit. The pictures of connectors are up there only should you decide to mix and match suit designs...
If you wish to change the connectors on a particular competition bikini, please take a look at the "crystal bikini connector" page- you may choose from any of these. Please contact me for a quote as the price may change. It may increase, decrease or remain the same , depending on which connectors are chosen.
I have had ladies ask if I rent suits- no. I have also had clients ask if I can buy back or re-sell their suits. No to that also, but there are plenty of websites dedicated to re-selling preowned competition suits.
FABRIC SAMPLES Because suits are custom made for each competitor, you may choose a fabric other than what the suit is shown in. There is no charge to change out a fabric. Pretty much any suit can be made out of any fabric. If you would like to change the suit fabric/color, please order as is on the website, then drop a note on our contact page with your color/fabric choice from the fabrics pages. I prefer not to make figure suits from sequin as these suits have to have bound edges and end up looking more like a bikini division suit.
My current fabric stock is shown on the website, and changes periodically . If you don't see what you are looking for, let me know- chances are I can get it for you from our suppliers!
Please don't hesitate to ask for FREE FABRIC SWATCHES! I like to send these out as there is no telling what colors look like on YOUR monitor! Plus, there's nothing like seeing the fabric up close and against your skin to make an educated choice. I don't want you to be surprised or disappointed in your color choice once your suit arrives...
A great way to test our fit is to purchase a practice suit, Doing so allows you to practice in the correct suit format, and saves your show suit for stage only! We can adjust the fit of your practice suit once we see it on you, and at that point we make a pattern with your name on it to keep on file for future use! This ensures you get the stage fit that you want.
WASHING & WEARING YOUR BIKINI Your suit is delicate! Please don't wear it to practice in as it's not meant to withstand repeated wearings as a regular swimsuit would. This is NOT a beach bikini! Heat will damage the glue! Please DO NOT expose your suit to intense heat, such as wearing it to the beach, or leaving it in a hot car. To clean it after your show, hand wash in the sink with as little soap as possible and warm water. Use either dish soap or shampoo, or woolite, as long as what you use has no whiteners or bleach. The whitener/bleach will ruin the metallic finish, as will prolonged soaking of the suit. Swish thru for only about a minute or so and use a small toothbrush to remove tanner & bikini bite from the inside. Very light colored suits may retain some stain on the outside edges- this can't be helped, and won't be noticed onstage at your next show. Do not wring the suit out- you may dislodge crystals! Either lay flat on towels to dry or hang to dry. Even after taking all these precautions, you may notice a little dulling on some fabrics. I never know which fabrics this will happen to; I don't manufacture the fabric so I have no control over how it wears. Most holograms do have the tendency to dull after a bit- unfortunately, it can't be helped :-(
SIZING FOR FIGURE/PHYSIQUE SUITS
there is additional sizing info on the "how to measure" page.
Triangle tops come in sizes A- DD, and pretty much run to size.
However, if you are ordering the molded cup option, please be aware that the A and B size runs true, but the C, D, and DD run large. If you're an A, order the A. If your'e a B, order the B, If you're a C, the B without pads will fit. If you're a D, order a C. If you're a DD, order the D, and if you're a DDD, The DD will fit. Molded cups are best for unaugmented breasts. If you’re augmented, a triangle top is your best option.
We also take into consideration that all manufacturers size their bras differently. Many clients wear Victorias Secret bras, and they are vanity sized. We find that clients usually wear one cup size smaller in Crystallini bikinis and figure/physique suits.
XS bottom hip 30-32 inches or 76.2- 81.28cm
S bottom hip 33-35 inches or 83.8 - 88.9cm
M bottom hip 36-38 inches or 91.44-96.52cm
L bottom hip 39-41 inches or 99.06-104.14cm
When taking the hip measurement, make sure the tape goes around the widest part of the hip, with the tape running around your butt. There are diagrams on the "how to measure" page to help you position the tape properly
Also of big help in getting a more customized fit is a waist, height ,and torso loop measurement. You may email this info to us. To take a torso loop measurement, place the tape measure at one shoulder and let it hang down your back. Pass it thru your legs and bring it up your front to meet at the original starting point at your shoulder. This measurement will run between 54" (137.16cm) - 66"(167.64cm), depending on your height. This is what helps us determine the string length and how high to bring up the sides of your figure suit.
sizing for competition bikinis
there is additional sizing info on the "how to measure " page. Once you've measured, you can order right from the website.
Triangle tops come in sizes A- DD, pretty much run to size, and are cut narrower than figure suit tops.
However, if you are ordering the molded cup option, please be aware that the A & B size runs true, but the C, D, and DD run large. If you're an A, order the A. If your'e a B, order the B, but we will add pads. If you're a C, the B without pads will fit. If you're a D, order a C. If you're a DD, order the D, and if you're a DDD, The DD will fit. We don't recommend molded cups for gals with implants- the triangle tops work best! But, if you insist...
We also take into consideration that all manufacturers size their bras differently. Many clients wear Victorias Secret bras, and they are vanity sized. We find that clients usually wear one cup size smaller in our bikinis and figure/physique suits.
XS bottom hip 30-32 inches or 76.2 - 81.28cm
S bottom hip 33-35 inches or 83.8-88.9cm
M bottom hip 36-38 inches or 91.44-96.52cm
L bottom hip 39-41 inches or 99.06-104.14cm
I have had many clients ask about coverage for caesarian scars and have found that raising the front rise 1/2"(1.27cm) seems to take care of the situation. If you have concerns of this nature, let me know. As I said previously, suits are custom made, and can be cut specially for you. However, suits that are specifically cut differently from our patterns are NOT returnable.
SPONSORSHIPS 2022 sponsorships are claimed, and there will be no more until 2023
PAYMENT Payment is accepted via Paypal on the website . It isn't necessary to have a Paypal account to remit- you may check out as a guest. If you prefer to pay by another method, we offer Venmo, Zelle, and Cashapp . Just let us know which of these are your preferred method and we will invoice you manually.
GIFT CERTIFICATES We have them! In any denomination. Contact us to order one to gift your favorite athlete!
If you decide to change the fabric on a suit, you may order as shown, and then drop us a note on the contact page to let us know which fabric you'd like instead. There is no extra fee to change suit fabric or color!
SUIT TURNAROUND We have found that a 4-6 week turnaround holds true for the most part. However, this changes on a daily basis, depending on the time of year, how many suits are ahead of you, and what kind of suits are ahead of you! Best plan is to contact me when your suit is ordered and at that time, we can give you a pretty good estimate of when your suit will ship. We usually err in YOUR favor, and can absolutely state that we have have never been late with a suit. If we can't have it to you for your bikini competition or figure competition you'll be notified before you go ahead and order it. Nobody needs that kind of stress. Practice suits leave here in 7-10 days . Bikinis with crystal connectors, but no additional embellishment usually make it out of here in 7-10 days too.
If you order a suit months in advance of your show date, we will get to it as soon as possible, but if another client orders after you and needs a suit for a show date before yours, we have to bump you for a bit. Competition dates trump everything else here , so please have patience...you will still have your suit a few weeks in advance of your show.
SUIT RETURNS There is a limited return policy! We will accept a return if we made a mistake- wrong color, wrong connectors, different size than what was ordered.... Returns on bloopers must be made within 10 days of receipt on UNWORN suits. A refund is issued after suit inspection.
We don't accept returns on a suit that has been altered from our patterns to meet clients needs, such as widening or raising the crotch, or a back bottom width that is different from our norm.
Only unworn suits are accepted back for refunds. If you decide to exchange for a different suit, or a different color, I must ask you to cover shipping for a new one back to you.
Refunds are credited back to your Paypal , Zelle, Venmo, or Cashapp account
