5 Important Considerations Before Buying Your First Competition Bikini

Posted by on Oct 20, 2016 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on 5 Important Considerations Before Buying Your First Competition Bikini

When you’ve spent hours in the gym preparing for your first bikini competition, it’s essential that you choose the right suit to make maximum impact on the judges.  Here are five important considerations when making your choice of competition bikini. Skin and hair colour Your skin colour will heavily influence the fabric colour that you choose.  You want your bikini to stand out when you’re on stage so it’s vital that you pick a shade that contrasts with your skin.  If you decide on a light-coloured fabric, it’s best to have darker skin so you may want to go tanning.  If you’re blonde, go for a darker colour that will contrast with your hair. Crystals Crystal embellishments are brilliant on stage under the lights.  They add sparkle and can really draw attention to your moves and poses, especially if you choose drops that move when you do.  If your budget doesn’t extend to crystals, sequins can be very effective too. Choosing connectors When choosing connectors, it’s important that you take your physique into account.  If you have really good abductors, choose a smaller connector that won’t detract from the muscle you’ve got to display.  Shorter girls should steer clear of long dangle connectors, which can make legs look shorter. The back cut Competition bikinis are cut to emphasise and flatter your butt.  There are different cuts available, depending on how much coverage you want or what is allowed by the competition you’re entering.  For a first competition, a moderate cut is usually the best choice. If you’re not quite as lean as you want to be, a high rise front option could be a good idea and suits those with glute measurements of greater than 100 cm.  It’s your choice! The most important thing is that you choose a competition bikini that you absolutely love!  It’s your event, and you should pick something that makes you feel sexy and confident.  By all means discuss the cut and colour with your trainer, but at the end of the day you’re the one who’s going to take to the stage wearing the suit. In conclusion When it comes to your first bikini competition, your suit is important.  Follow the tips given above to help you choose a suit from a place like Fuchsia By Alex that’s perfect for you.  For more help, ask the staff in the competition bikini supplier store who will be pleased to help you find the perfect suit for...

Saving time shopping for suits

Posted by on Jun 18, 2015 in Uncategorized | Comments Off on Saving time shopping for suits

If you are a busy executive it can be hard to find the time to go shopping for new suits, yet wearing shabby or ill fitting suits can send a less than professional impression to colleagues and clients. Here are some ways to save time on shopping for suits, while still maintaining a sharp appearance. Adopt a colour theme While you don’t want to look dull, adopting a colour scheme can help you to always co-ordinate your shirts and ties with your suits. It can be easier to decide that you’ll stick with dark greys and blues for example, and then all of your ties and shirt fabrics can be matched to blues and greys. If you aren’t sure what colours suit you best, hold up different suit fabrics against your skin. Good colour choices should make your skin look healthier and poor ones may make you look dull or sickly. By co-ordinating your wardrobe colour scheme replacing suits won’t need to be a delicate balance of replacing shirts and co-ordinating the purchase of new accessories, as everything should still work together. Take advice If you have a friend or colleague who looks great, rather than trying to describe their look in a shop later it’s well worth asking them where they buy their suits. They may be more than happy to recommend you a tailor or give you some hints on why their suit looks so good. They may have just modernised their cut, or taken some advice on a new fabric that you could adopt in your suits, and you’ll find out more efficiently by just asking than trying to describe the look to a shop assistant. Take your measurements and get your suits made online By measuring yourself with a tape measure at home, you can get custom made suits online specifically for your size and shape. This can limit the time and visits required to the tailors for fittings, and the measurements can be kept on file for future suits. Just remember to be honest if your pants are feeling a little tight – a well fitting suit can hide a multitude of sins but a poorly fitting suit may only serve to accentuate any extra weight. It can often help to get someone else to take your measurements for maximum accuracy. Getting new suits made is a great investment in your professional appearance. Why not spruce up your wardrobe by ordering some new suits...
