Frequently Asked Questions

 Is your pricing in USD$ or CAN$?
We are a Canadian Company based in Toronto. Our pricing is shown in Canadian dollars. Please consider currency exchange when thinking about purchasing from us. You will be pleasantly surprised how affordable we are considering other USA based companies.


1, When should I place my order for a competition suit?
We recommend to have your order in at least 6 weeks prior to your show or earlier depending on your location. Usually it takes 2-3 weeks to have your custom suit made then it ships out.

2, I'll lose a lot of weight before my show, how do I know what size to order? How does this work?
We will use your current measurements along with the anticipated weight loss until your show date to make your suit fit perfect. If you are in doubt you can also put your order in as early as 3 months prior to your show to secure your suit and put a hold on it until 6 weeks prior to your show when we custom make it to your current measurements. For this option please contact Mayra.

3,What if my suit doesn't fit me?
Your bikini should be small when you receive it. Remember your show is still weeks away and your body will change. If the top feels small, remove the padding that will allow the fabric to stretch more, if it feels a bit bigger you can add more padding like a silicon insert and you can also scrunch it more at the sides as well.The bottom should feel a bit snug. They however come with an extra fabric in the back where the connectors are attached so it is easily adjusted (taken in or let out) by your local seamstress if you need it.

4, I ordered my bikini but decided not to compete, can I cancel my order and get a refund?
Unfortunately no. All competition bikinis are custom made to order and adjusted to your specifications.Once the suit is in production we can not offer a refund. Please make sure you double check on everything with your coach and be confident about your fabric, connectors, style and cut before you place the order. Please see our Company Policy for more details.

5, Got my bikini but I don't like how the color and/or style fits on my body, what should I do?
If you have no experience buying custom bikinis online, please make sure you stick with a basic style like a triangle top and a color you know will look good on you. All bikinis are custom made for your measurements and such we don't offer refunds. Please make sure you double check on everything with your coach and be confident about your fabric, connectors, style and cut before you place the order.

Product shots are there to give you an idea about the style/cut not the fit. As you know even between two people who have the same measurements fit can be different depending on their shape.

7, Do you ship internationally?
Yes we do. Please see our Company Policy for more details on international shipments and possible custom delays and charges.

8, How do I know what cut to get?
This depends on the size and shape of your glutes and how revealing you want your suit to be. The most popular cut  for competitors is the brazilian cheeky cut. If you are competing with a federation that requires 50% coverage go with the Mid coverage cheeky. Make sure you are aware of your show requirements regarding your suit before you place an order. You can look it up on their website or contact your show organizers for details.

There is an option for a foam padding sewn into your crystal studded triangle tops. This is an extra CAN$40.00. You will find it under our "Extras" menu to add it to your cart before check out.

Bikinis come standard with a sliding triangle top. This allows the most adjustment. The strings move in a channel under your breast so you can decide how much coverage you need. If your triangle top feels a bit on a smaller side remove the padding that will help the fabric to stretch more and give you a better fit and you can also scrunch the sides a bit more or less.For a special request we can sew the triangle down closest to the center connector which helps to create a better cleavage.
