When you are preparing for a figure or bikini competition, there are some competition show day essentials that you simply must have to really be ready for your competition! After competing in over 25 shows including the Olympia and the Arnold Classic and working with hundreds of figure and bikini competitors over the last 10 years, I have tried and tested countless products. Here are my top products that will help you step on stage at your personal best and that truly are your competition show day essentials!
Competition Show Day Essentials #1
For most bikini and figure competitions, clear 4-5 inch heels with or without rhinestones are the best choice. The elongate your legs and do not distract from your overall appearance. Some newer organizations are encouraging solid color or more flashy heels. In that case, I recommend you coordinate the color with your suit.
Competition Show Day Essentials #2
It’s crucial to have a flawless Competition Tan for Bikini and Figure stages…really, it’s one of the most important elements of a competition! However, with so many rules, regulation and different products to choose from, choosing the best color for you and the spray tanner to apply that color has become a challenge. If your show offers a professional company that will be spray tanning, that is a great option. However it will cost at least $100-$150. If you are looking for the same golden tan, but at a more economical price, then check out the products below. Bonus… if you do your own tan and have a friend help, you do not have to stand naked in front of a stranger that sprays the tan on for you!
Competition Show Day Essentials #3
An important final touch for your show is the be sure that your physique is as lean and tight as possible. We all hold some water and in the days before your show, you will want to do what you can to lose that extra water. I have found Xpel from MHP to be the #1 water loss supplement. In just a few days, I find that most women can safely and reliably drop 2-6+ lbs of water weight which significantly improves the tightness of their abs in particular.
Competition Show Day Essentials #4
Once you have chosen the most gorgeous suit for your body, it is time to add the frosting. Beautiful earrings and a nice bracelet or two is all you need. Do not go overboard here. A few well chosen pieces will complete your look without over powering your body.
