FEDERATION

There are many different Fitness and bodybuilding federations in the UK, with new one's springing up every year. Which one you compete in should be determined by what you want to achieve, your personal style and how well you fit into their look and judging criteria.

Do your research, and pick the right one for you

 

category

Selecting the correct category is critical to maximising success. Once you have selected which shows you are interested in read up on the specific requirements of each category and select which one best fits your muscle composition, height and shape.

ORDERING

Making the right bikini decision for you couldn't be easier!

Order your bikini at least 8 weeks in advance

During the consultation you can try on sample bikinis to see what bikini cut suits you best,  you can compare fabrics and colours and view first hand the crystals and connectors so you can make more informed decisions.

Getting the perfect fit is essential

Measurement 

First measurements are taken around 8 weeks out from your show date.

 

I prefer to do all measurement and fittings in person to ensure accuracy, but I am aware that is not always possible. 

For clients that can't make it to the studio you can watch the video below and submit your measurements after checkout.

Fittings

Final fitting takes place 2-3 weeks out from your show date, where final alterations will be established. This can be done at the studio, or final measurements can be submitted via email.

Final fitting takes place 2-3 weeks out from your show date, where final alterations will be established. This can be done at the studio, or final measurements can be submitted via email.

 

AFTER CARE

Taking care of your bikini is pretty easy and straight forward.

It's essential to treat any tan staining as soon as possible after the show.

If watching video's isn't your thing, here is my summary:

  • do not put the bikini on until your spray tan is completely dry

  • spot wash any tan stains as soon as possible

  • use cool running water and rub lightly

  • use mild fabric detergent if required

  • dry inside, away from direct sunlight

  • store flat in a box or hang on hanger
