Diva Design VS Couture Bikini. What's the difference?

The most exciting part of prep has come, time to pick out your competition bikini. You have set the date for your WBFF show and have seen so many bikinis on IG and have no idea what is the difference between all the bikinis. Some are Diva Designs, and some are Couture and you wonder to yourself what exactly is the difference?

The main difference between our Diva Designs and Couture Designs is Price. Our Diva Designs are designs we have come up with ourselves that we know are going to work on the WBFF Stage. We have taken the hard work out of the design process so all you need to decide upon is the colour.  As the design is already sorted this means you save money on the design as you don’t have to outlay for the cost of the sketch or time taken discussing the design in detail. Our entire team is trained on how to do ALL Diva designs so we can manufacture any Diva Design in any colour within 5 business days. They are also a great option if you need a bikini in a hurry. Our Diva Designs range in price from $500.00

Couture Designs are as the name suggests, Couture. Meaning to design and manufacture fashionable clothes to a client's specific requirements and measurements. Every one of our Couture Bikinis are designed and made exactly as you imagine. We spend hours designing and making Couture Bikinis and they are an investment piece. Couture designs are often more elaborate and intricate than our Diva design bikinis and range in price from $750.00.

 

What is it you are wanting in a bikini? Do you want a beautiful design that is suitable for WBFF but don’t want to break the bank? Perhaps a Diva Design is the way to go. Click here to view our Diva Design Collection

 Want to really spoil yourself or want to take your look to the next level? A Couture bikini is the way to go. Click here for more information on the Couture Bikini ordering process

Don’t stress we keep track of all incoming orders for all WBFF shows, if we notice your order is the similar to an existing order for the same show, we will notify you. We don’t want to see 2 of the same style and colour bikini on stage, just as much as you don’t want the same bikini as someone else.

Size & Style Guide

Please take the time to read the below to find the size and style that is best for you.

 

How do I choose my brief size?

Your brief size is determined by your hip measurement. Your hip measurement is to be taken on your HIGH HIP which is on your underwear line--NOT around your glutes or widest part. Take a tape measure and measure the full circumference of your hips 

 

We want you to look and feel your absolute best on stage so please make sure you check your measurements properly. Remember to order with your stage weight in mind.
If you happen to be in between two sizes then please select the smaller size on your order form as you are likely to drop size as your competition date approaches. However if you are already close to stage weight then the bigger size may be more appropriate.
Size Hip Measurement 
4 70-75cm
6 75-80cm
8 80-85cm
10 85-90cm

This sizing chart applies to ALL of our bikini brief and figure suit styles.

 

Crotch Measurement

Your crotch measurement is an optional measurement you can offer when placing your order. Our pattern will fit the vast majority of sizes but you may feel free to add this measurement in your order notes if you have a c-section scar you wish to hide or if you want your bottoms to sit higher or lower than usual.

 To find your crotch measurement, take your tape measure to your back and hold the end of it at the top of your underwear. Pass the tape though your legs and take note of the measurement of where you would like your suit to sit at the front. Somewhere between 35-50cm is considered normal. Please contact us if you have any troubles.

How do I choose my Brief Style?

We offer 3 different brief styles, Standard, Euro and Figure suit. 

Competition Bikini

Standard style briefs is our original and most popular cut. These bottoms are suitable for All bikini and fitness federations. They sit around the hips and have a butterfly shaped scrunch bottom to accentuate the glues. 

Fitness Competition Euro Russian Cut

 

The Euro Cut briefs have a V shape with a scoop front and butterfly scrunch bottoms. It is designed to sit high over the hips to give a flattering look to your midsection and create the illusion of elongated legs and smaller waist.These briefs are best suited to European competitors and federations like IFBB.  Lots of ICN girls also love this look. We have noticed this style is becoming more popular with all federations.

Competition Bikin

Our figure suits come with a high V-Shape front and back. The briefs and are designed to sit high on the hips. The straps are adjustable and criss-cross on the back, which clips onto the top.They come in all our different cuts.

You can choose Standard Moulded, Sweetheart Moulded or Slider style tops. We do not offer Bombshell Diva cups with figure suits due to poor bust support and  possible gaping from the chest.

How do I choose my brief cut?

Each of our 3 brief styles come in 4 cuts. From smallest to largest they are Pro, Brazilian, Extra Cheeky and Cheeky. 

Pro Cut: If you have great glutes and want to show them off. then the 'Pro' cut is perfect for you.

Extra Cheeky: For federations that require 1/3 coverage we recommend the ‘Extra Cheeky’ cut.

Cheeky: For federations that require 50% coverage the ‘Cheeky’ cut is your best option.

 

Competition Bikini Cuts

 How do I choose my top size?

We have 3 different top style to choose form. Sweetheart moulded, Slider, Bombshell diva.  

Competition Bikini Top            

Our most popular cup is the 'Sweetheart' Moulded top. These scooped bra tops have a layer of padding sewn in to help enhance and shape the bust. This style is a great all-rounder and suits competitors with natural or enhanced breasts. This top style has been popular with girls with smaller busts as it adds fullness and cleavage whilst adding curves to your look. The shape of the cup also hugs the chest, preventing gaping and provides plenty of support. For natural competitors who want to control excess skin from breastfeeding or a huge weight loss, the sweetheart cups are great as they can help stop any ‘spillage’. The shape also helps to add an extra cleavage boost, especially when extra padding is added. For competitors with implants this style is great as it moulds to in implant perfectly and sits nicely under the bust to hide any scaring from surgery.

Model wears DD Slim Coverage. 

 

Competition Bikini TopSlider glamfit fitness competition bikini

Our Slider style top is a traditional triangle bikini, they are designed to slide along a draw string. This allows for more flexibility in the size and coverage of the top. This style is suited to competitors with implants.  For our smaller busted girls, this top is not the most flattering because it is not padded or moulded. Slider bikini tops come with a thin layer of padding to avoid ‘high beams’. 

Model wear DD Slim Coverage

Competition Bikini Top

Our newest design the 'Bombshell Diva' top has one continuous underwire which peaks in the centre. This style is suited to WBFF, IFBB and other fashion focused federations. It is a deep plunging bra that creates the perfect cleavage. It is best suited to most girls with implants or a large natural bust. We do not recommend these cups if you are smaller than a natural B cup.

Model wear DD Size.

Diva Sweetheart Bikini Top

Our Latest Bikini cup the 'Diva Sweetheart' is designed to give you the European body building competition look.  It looks great with natural or implant busts, it comes with inbuilt push up.  If you are wanting the extreme cleavage look, we recommend sizing up and adding extra padding to your order.
