If you want to add some extra pizzazz to your competition outfits, here are some easy and cheap ways to add some extra bling to your competition bikinis.
An old bikini can often be brightened up with some new connectors. Connectors can be bought in the same colour as your bikini, or a contrasting colour to draw focus to certain areas. Other options are to match the colours but add some shiny or sparkly detail such as crystals or glittery material to drawn the eyes and lights to the area. These sections are between the bust and at the sides of the hips, so the decision on where to draw the eyes will depend on which parts of your figure you want to highlight. You can often pick up new connectors from competition bikini stores.
One of the easiest ways to brighten up your competition bikinis is by getting them professionally cleaned. Most bikinis are made of delicate technical fabrics and have embellishment so need to be cleaned using light, hand cleaning and professional grade cleaning products. A good clean can remove stains from spray tans, sweat, and makeup. Removing these marks can make your bikini look much brighter and more impressive under the lights.
Replacing any lost crystals
If you already have a 'blinged up' bikini it can be a good idea to look over the crystals before the competition and replace any loose or missing crystals. These may not seem significant in your home but can add up to a bikini that draws a lot less light on the stage. You can often get replacements from competition bikini retailers or fabric stores.
Add some extra crystals
If you have been disappointed with how your bikini is appearing on stage you can also add more crystals to the fabric pieces (in line with your competition guidelines, of course). Often adding a row or two of contrasting crystals can be enough to make your design really unique and 'pop' when viewed on stage.
It's always worth checking out the sale items from your local competition bikini store if none of these ideas are enough to bring your bikini to a high enough standard. Many bikini sellers offer payment plans so that you can pay off a new bikini over a few pay periods, rather than all at once. But either way, if you can't make your bikini into your dream competition bikini, don't hesitate to buy competition bikinis.
