Vickys weight gain come through both her pregnancies due to gestational diabetes, a total of 45kg with a little weightloss between pregnancies, which eventually lead to the below start numbers of her fitness journey;
Belly button 145cm
'My life before training was just sad, I was lonely & borderline depressed. I was ashamed of the person I had become, embarrassed for “letting my self go” I locked myself away in my home in fear of being seen.’
The turning point for Vicky was at the park watching her husband play with their 2 little boys and she couldn't, she was to big to run around with them much less play on the equipment. The very next day she loaded her boys into a double pram and started walking, she knew she just had to do something. She tracked her walks is a walking app on her phone and made it her mission to go further or faster each time. These early days had their complications, because of the size of her feet her shoes rubbed to the point her blisters bleed so she would walk in thongs for the next few days.
After loosing a substantial amount of weight just adding walking and cutting back some poor food choices she contacted local Personal Trainer/Online Coach Rowena Smart, and started her first Bootcamp class, over time she added a PT session and this is where nutrition started to become her new learning. After hitting a plateau Rowena could see how dishearten Vicky had become and started to pry deeper, shocked to find out Vicky was only eating 900cals a day. The process of really becoming a part of #TEAMSMART began, Rowena reversed Vicky's food intake up and educated her about IIFYM, Vicky now eats between 1900-2500 depending on what phase she is in. Over time Vicky added another PT, Bootcamp & Female Strength class bringing her weekly gym attendance to 5 days per week.
'I covered my body in big baggy black clothes, I never showed my arms or my legs, even in the 40degree summer I would wear a long sleeve cardigan over a maxi dress just to keep my arms covered.'
In 2017 Vicky floated the idea of doing a comp with #TEAMSMART but being concerned with the loose skin she had been left with at a now muscular 80kg she was hesitant. Rowena convinced her to enter the Swimwear division so she could wear a 1 piece, competing in a small rural show in Ballarat. Vicky stepped on that stage at 67kg. It was enough to get her hooked. After a 6month off season to build some more muscle Vicky is now preparing to be a part of the WBFF Sydney Transformation Division, rocking a 2 piece Glamfit Bikini! Going from the anxious, self conscious, overweight girl to wearing a custom designed couture bikini, is winning in itself, even with some remaining loose skin, Vicky still has the confidence to embrace the amazing body she has been blessed with.
Vicky now sits at:
Under Bust 78cm
Belly Button 71cm
And this is 4 weeks out from her competition.

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

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.

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’.

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.
