Hello Competitors!

Below I have addressed some of the frequent questions I am asked about the process of ordering a custom suit. If you have any additional questions please call me at 623-570-4944 or email me at janinewham@aim.com.

What types of suits do you make?
Bikini, Figure, Women’s Physique, Men’s and Women’s Bodybuilding for NPC, IFBB, WBFF and other similar competitions, pageants, bikini competitions (like Hot 100 @ Wet Republic, Sun, Fun 21 in Bahamas, Miss Rehab), bikinis for the pool, outfits for photoshoots, outfits for fitness routines, costumes, and pretty much any other kind of stretchy clothing!

How do I choose fabric?
I can order almost any color you like from an extensive selection of swatches, including many different types of metallics, spandex, and lycra colors. I also have lots of fabric at my house in Buckeye, AZ. The most popular colors for competitions seem to be turquoise, blue, purple and green – the jewel tone shades of these colors. The next popular colors are emerald green, red, and magenta. Color is a difficult choice for many competitors but you should choose what you like and feel beautiful in! Even though I have outlined what the most popular colors are, there are many reasons and strategies for choosing any color. Trainers, friends, and family members are great in helping to choose. Another great resource is looking on the internet. Almost all past shows have tons of pics available online!

Can you add rhinestone connectors, rings, chains, etc to my suit?
Yes, I can order many types. I have uploaded some pics of the most popular ones HERE. I also use a type of rhinestone band that comes in 1, 2, or 3 rows of rhinestones. If you really want to create a unique suit then you can become your own designer and we can work together on the suit of your dreams!

Can you add rhinestones to suits?
Yes, I use Swarovski Crystals and other brands/types of multi-faceted glass crystals in all colors. Pricing depends on amount of stones and how intricate the pattern is you would like. I can provide you with a quote if you email me pics of what you are interested in!

Do you have pics I can look at?
Yes. Because of the large amount of pics I have, I like to hear a little bit about what kind of competition you are doing so I can send you pics of suits like what you will be wearing. Another good resource for pics are websites. There are extensive galleries online with pics of all types of suits. Feel free to email me pics and I can tell you if/how I can make a suit for you! If you are unsure of where to look for suits online, contact me and I’ll give you a few ideas.

How do I order a suit?
You can call me 623-570-4944 or email me janinewham@aim.com. Include as many details as you have or describe your ideas. You can also come to my house in Buckeye, AZ. I have a room in my house dedicated to all things bikini! I am normally available Monday-Friday and I also work a couple of weekends each month as making bikinis is my full-time job. I have all the swatches, pics, fabrics, and samples for you to try on. You can contact me to make an appointment.

How much does a suit cost?
Most competitors choose suits that are 100-175. This price includes metallic fabric, crystal connectors and crystals on the suit. I will add padding to the top if you like. Contact me for pricing of men’s bodybuilding posing trunks.

What happens if the suit needs to be altered?
Since each suit is custom made for your body, alterations will be discussed on a case by case basis. I am confident that as you the creator/designer of your suit, we will make it everything you dreamed of!

How long will it take to get my suit once I order it?
Usually three to four weeks. During peak times (8 weeks prior to a show) many orders come in. It is best to contact me as soon as possible to ensure your suit is completed as quickly as possible.

What type of payment terms do you expect?
Once we set all the details for your dream suit, a 50% deposit will need to be paid by check, cash, Paypal, or card. Upon completion of the suit, the remaining payment is due. If you wish to have the suit shipped, full payment must be made prior to shipping.

Can you ship/send my suit to me?
Yes! Once you order a suit you can send me a check or you can pay through Paypal or with a card and I can send you your suit in the mail insured.
