Step Two: Choose your favorite colour

Take a look through all the samples shown on the site to find the perfect colour and fabric. You can narrow down your search using the ‘Search Box’ located at the right of the page.

After you select the bikini you like the colour of; use the drop down menus to add connectors and other decoration & information. (The total price will adjust depending on the choices you make).

Step Three: Add decoration

As you have seen throughout the site; there are a lot examples to show the different options you can choose when decorating your bikini. The bikinis on the site are just an example of what you can have made. Prices shown does not include decoration (connectors or Swarovski crystals as these are additional extras). The prices shown are a starting price to have a bikini custom made in that particular fabric.

You can also take a look through the Connector Gallery.

This is where you can also add Swarovski Crystal decoration to your bikini should you choose.

Once you know what you want you can add them to your order using the drop down menus.

STYLES & SIZES

All KL Competition bikinis are custom made to order.  Our bikinis are not mass made and will differ slightly from one girl to the next depending on their requests, natural shape , size & height.

There are two different styles to choose from when ordering your custom bikini.

TOP

  • String Triangle style: This is a traditional style where each triangle can slide along the back strap making.
  • Top Shaper: This is a foam mould that is inserted into a normal string style top to give a  smooth, fuller look.
  • Fix Moulded  style: This is a moulded top that doesn’t slide along the strap that goes around your back. It is fixed in place. The cleavage gap is made to your measurements.

No cleavage gap measurement is required with the string triangle style as you can adjust the gap yourself. (unless you have selected a longer cleavage connector, in that case the gap will be at least length of the connector.

PANT:

  • Brazilian cut: This is still a brief cut compared to normal beach bikinis however not quite as brief as the pro cut.Kristen Lonie pro cut
    In our experience it is best to not have too much coverage on stage so we do not make full coverage. The samples on the site are of a Brazilian cut.
  • Pro cut: This style is cut to sit over your glutes to really show off your curves  but still offers enough coverage to still look classy on stage.
  • If you are concerned about coverage then the Brazilian cut would be better for you.

Picture to the right shows Kristen wearing a Pro cut pant with a string style top. This bikini was fully encrusted using two different coloured swarovski crystals.

This example to the right is a current design &  shows the correct way to wear your bikini. The connectors on the sides of the pants should be pulled up to elongate your legs. The connectors should not be worn low like you would a beach bikini.

SIZES: 

The bikinis are made to your measurements however to give you a guide refer to the following.

Pant:

AUS size 6-8 = XS

AUS size 8-10= S

AUS size 10-12= M

 Top:

Bra Size A-B cup = S

Bra Size C-D cup= M

Bra Size DD cup= L

Step Four: Add your measurement

  1. Hips: Measure close to the top of your hip bone . ( approx 1 inch below the top of the hip bone)
  2. Glutes: Measure all the way around the biggest part of your glutes. (From the crutch all the way around the biggest part of your bottom)
  3. Back: Hold the tape just under your breasts and go all the way around your torso. Take this measurement whilst breathing out so your rib cage is not expanded & is at its smallest.
  4. Cleavage gap: Measure the distance you would like the gap to be in between your boobs from where each corner of the top meets in the middle. ( This measurement is only needed for the fixed triangle style tops)
  5.  Note: When measuring if you know you are going to be a lot smaller in certain areas make sure you hold the tape a little  firmer.

 Step Five: Check out

Once you have entered in all your requirements you can proceed to check out. Once your order has been receive if there is anything that doesn’t seem right you will be contacted prior to starting your bikini.

Adjustments

Once you have received your bikini should you need an adjustment simply email us a photo wearing the bikini showing front and back view.

When taking this photo make sure you are posing properly as you would if you were on stage. Also have someone take this pic for you standing back &  holding the camera approx 1 metre from the ground. This will  give me a ‘judges view’ and  this is the angle you need to look your best when competing.

Once we have reviewed your pic the bikini can be mailed back to us. The first alteration is free of charge however you must include a self address postal bag so we can return your bikini.
