FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Average turnaround time?

6-8 weeks from date of purchase or all measurements submitted. 

If your order is urgent please contact us to ensure we can make it for you in time. During busy competition times we may not be able to fulfil rush orders. Our bikinis are made from scratch and we only take orders we are able to make on time with all attention it deserves. We communicate with our girls during the time when we make the bikinis, to check on their progress , we are taking regularly progress measurement for any adjustments needed up to final few weeks before the competition. ( Some girls that are able to do 1:1 fittings with us in London are leaving final adjustments week or two before peak week).

Once your bikini has been posted we do not take any responsibility of lost or damaged goods. If you have opted to confirm your measurements closer to your competition you can expect to receive your bikini within 3-10 working days from the date you send through your new measurements. All dates are always confirmed to you by us in our conversation and in writing .

Please send us your measurement to make sure the selected suit you want fits you correctly - if based on measurements for example bottoms will not be the best coverage for your federation and division we will advice you not to buy it and will try to help you find another suit/bikini that are more flattering and better fit for you based on your measurement. ( subject to availability )

If you see a bikini on this page but need it in a different size, you will need to place a custom order.

Our ready to buy stock always varies. Usually we make lots of ready to buy bikinis during quiet period before Christmas and most of the bikinis are available to sell in Spring season. During the year we many concentrate on customised orders and may not have so many choices from ready to buy bikinis. Please do not count on ready to buy bikinis, they may not be available in your size or style needed for your federation and order your bikinis well in advance. There is certain amount of orders we are able to make per months and we always post on our social medias any deadlines or last spaces available . As we said, we don't buy bikini bases from somewhere else but all is made from scratch and we may not always colours and sizes you are looking for, for quick shipping. We do concentrate on customised orders.

Do we take international orders?

Yes. Just make sure you place your order in advance before your competition and allow time for shipping

What bottoms cut do you do? 

All bottoms are made to measure. Style and rules varies for each federations. Please book a facecall consultation with us if you need help or come to see us in London. Or get in touch with your coach for advice and contact us together.

If you looking to buy bikinis from our ready to buy selection or rent ( all subject to availability) always submit your measurements and check with us how the bottoms will fit you. 

Are your connectors Swarovski?

No, our connectors are made from Czech crystals. Very pretty, sparkly, not overpriced. We wish to work with Swarovski connectors but it will overprice your bikini so much and we would like to make this transparent that the connectors are not made from Swarovski crystals. 

What crystals do you use? 

We mostly use quality "Czech crystals" and crystals made here in UK ( A-Grade)  we do offer competition bikinis in "Swarovski "or "Preciousa "version of most of our designs. Please always check with us if the design you are after can be created in the crystal option you like. Colour pallets are similar but not the same. Most of our customer prefer "Czech crystals" or crystals made in UK ( A-Grade)  due to the heavy and fully crystallised design to keep the price lower.  Do not worry, the crystals we used do sparkle and are absolutely stunning on stage. We have had so many  clients from amateur to Pros that complimented on how sparkle, shiny and radiant their suits were on stage.

 

But you always have an option to go for Swarovski Crystal options too. Yes the cost is higher in fully crystallised bikini designs. The shine, sparkle and beautiful cut of this crystals is absolutely out from this world. We love to work with Swarovski, but the choice is always yours. We will never push you for high end Swarovski and we will work with crystals you choose within your budget. It is truly only your choice .

     
Can I order bikini within my budget not knowing what I want?
