I was born in Meningie in South Australia. My family lived on a farm in Tintinara. This is where I grew up for 7 years. It's from here we moved to a small town in the Northern Territory desert called Alice Springs. It was here I found a true passion for body transformations, strength and drive. I competed in women's artistic gymnastics, sports aerobics and sports acrobatics for 10 years, taking out numerous titles and representing NT all over Australia.
I was a shy girl growing up, my trampoline was a stress reliever, dress up parties and pizzas with my girlfriends was how I spent my weekends until I was 16. I dropped gymnastics, alcohol became my stress reliever and house parties were how I spent my weekends and even weekdays. This was my new hobby. I lost focus and gained weight but to most people I was still the same person. I was unhealthy, partied, and lived a life that most of us do at that young age. It became extreme and I was on a road that scared both my family and me.
I moved to Darwin for 6 months where I managed the special needs dental clinic. New friends, new beginnings but still old habits. I happened to fall in love with someone on the other side of Australia, so this is where my Adelaide journey begun!
I moved to Adelaide for a boy I was madly in love with, we had known each other from teenage years and felt a bond straight away. A few months down the track, things turned ugly and I was mentally, emotionally and physically abused. I felt that my move to Adelaide was the biggest mistake of my life. I was lucky that I was strong enough to break away and escape from the horror that was controlling my life. Home and my family; where I felt safe, were 14 hours away. It took its toll and I locked myself away from the world.
I moved out and bought a house, life was better, the days became easier and the memories began to fade. Even though things were better I was always very anxious about what lay ahead. I was blessed to meet a coach who back then I would never have known would change my life forever. Gabe, I am forever grateful.
My journey, my life, and my dreams begun here. 2012, a year to forget but a year to remember.
Gabe spent sometime explaining the ins and outs of bodybuilding and what opportunities that could arise from such a sport. He said to me " there's a competition in 4 weeks, you either smash it now to see if you like it, or wait another 6-12 months". He sent me away with the idea in my head to think it through. I made it out the door and knew straight away I was in! I wasn't muscley, I wasn't doing it to win, I purely did it to see if it was something that interested me. This point in my life I needed a distraction, guidance and I needed support. Gabe became more then a personal trainer, he became my coach, my support, my main man and my rock. FitPharm became my family.
4 weeks later I was on stage and took out the IFBB bikini open short title.
My life has had its ups and downs, as most of us will encounter. It’s your choice how you decide to overcome it. Be strong, look past the hurt, the tears, the pain and just think "there’s someone else out there fighting for theirs". My advice is to dream big, set goals, find support, be open with your emotions and learn to love yourself.

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.
Model wears DD Slim Coverage.
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’.

We do not recommend these cups if you are smaller than a natural B cup.
