Are you ready to level up your fitness with a bikini competition but need help figuring out where to start? What bikini should you wear, what’s the best spray tan, and what impresses the judges? It can all seem overwhelming at first, but an experienced personal trainer and posing coach like Team Dee’s can ensure you’re well-prepared for your first competition.

What Are Bikini Competition Judges Looking For?

The ideal bikini body is athletic, although not as muscular as a female bodybuilder. The judges want to see a symmetrical, well-balanced hourglass figure. However, your physique isn’t the only thing they’ll consider—they’ll be judging you on your confidence, energy, the bikini you choose, and how well you achieve the perfect tan.

How To Prepare & Wow The Judges

  1. Choose A  Flattering Bikini
  2. Prep Ahead Of Time For The Best Tan
  3. Be Confident On Stage
  4. Hire An Experienced Personal Trainer & Posing Coach
  5. Practice Your Poses
  6. Choose Flattering Accessories

A High-Quality, Flattering Bikini Is Worth The Splurge

Don’t skimp when it comes to the quality of your bikini. It should not only have a great fit but have a high quality thicker material with elastic. Make sure the fit is not too small on top or too large on the bottom so it doesn’t throw off the symmetry.

Plan Ahead For A Beautiful, Even Tan

Weeks before your competition, you should start lightly exfoliating to ensure smooth skin—either a body scrub or exfoliating gloves will work. The best time for a spray tan is right before the show. If you come with smooth skin and have it done by a professional, you should have a beautiful, even tan for the show.

Proper Preparation Helps Boost Your Confidence

Being confident (without appearing cocky) will score you a lot of points with the judges. The best way to feel confident is to make sure you’re fully prepared for all the challenges that come with fitness competitions.

The Right Personal Trainer & Posing Coach Can Help

Hiring an experienced personal trainer and posing coach is key to being prepared and building confidence. They’ll help you fine-tune your physique and poses, ensuring you know exactly what to expect on competition day.

Make Sure Your Poses Are On Point

You can have the ideal body but still blow it onstage if you don’t know how to pose. Watching and studying how other bikini contestants pose will help you immensely. Make sure to attend competitions as a spectator or at least watch them on TV. You should also have a friend record of you posing to see how you look. And, of course, the number one tip for perfecting your poses is to hire a posing coach.

Don’t Forget The Accessories

Pick out your shoes early on in your training. You’ll want to get used to walking and posing in them. A classic fitness competition shoe has a 5″ clear heel and a 1/2″ platform. You should add some jewels for extra sparkle–the right jewelry can help add those final little details to your look. You’ll want some hoop or chandelier earrings, a cuff bracelet, and a ring.

What Else Should I Know Before Entering A Bikini Competition?

Entering any fitness competition takes dedication and commitment. It doesn’t only take training hard in the gym but also adhering to a strict diet that keeps you lean and builds muscle. You may also need to add certain supplements to your diet to stay energized through your training and help with recovery time.
