A competition bikini is an important investment and one you’ll want to care for properly to maximise its life. There are several things you can do to make sure your figure posing suit in Brisbane, Gold Coast, Melbourne, or Adelaide lasts as long as possible and helps you stand out among the competition.
When your suit first arrives, you will naturally want to make sure it fits well. But after trying it on, resist the urge to put it on again unnecessarily. Over time, any foil prints on the fabric may fade with too much handling. In addition, when you do put your suit on, be sure to pull it on by the fabric and not by the connectors or crystals.
After Your Competition
After you wear it in a competition, your figure posing suit will need some TLC. You should clean it as soon as possible after a show. Hand wash your bikini in a sink of lukewarm water with a bit of detergent. Rub the suit clean between your hands in the soapy water. If the suit has glue or tanning product on it, you may scrub it very carefully with a toothbrush. Do not allow the suit to soak in the water for an extended length of time because this may adversely affect the glue on the crystals. After washing, rinse your bikini gently in cool water until all the soap is removed, then dry it flat on a towel.
Storing Your Competition Bikini
Whether you are planning to sell your figure posing suit in the Gold Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, or Brisbane area or you want to keep it to wear in another competition, you need to store it safely. If there are no rhinestone connectors, you may store the suit in a sealable plastic bag. If the suit does have rhinestone connectors, it’s a better idea to hang it up, or store it inside a carry case designed specifically for this purpose. Either way, you should store the bikini with the straps untied and without allowing the connectors to be folded onto themselves. Make sure there is no weight on the connectors, as there might be in a drawer, for instance. Folding connectors can damage or weaken them over time.
If you need to send your suit to a new owner or send it out for alterations, it’s important to pack it properly to protect it during its journey, Keep the connectors as flat as possible. Do not fold them or allow them to become creased. Wrap the suit carefully in bubble wrap or tissue paper. If you do need to make a small repair, you may be able to handle this yourself. Keep a sewing kit on hand to take in or let out straps as needed, and be sure to have the right kind of glue in case you need to replace a loose crystal. By following these instructions, you can go a long way toward making your suit last a very long time.
