Custom Crystal Suit Info and Measuring Guide

Thank you for your interest in Candy Bee Swimwear! Below is a guide to help you get an idea of the ordering process, the different cut/styles/options, and measuring guide for custom competition NPC and Figure suits.

Ordering Process

 

Construction time for suits usually take 3-14 business days which depends on the complexity of stoning for the suit. I mail out priority mail from San Diego, Ca which takes 1-3 days depending on your location. 

 

I suggest ordering your suit, 5-8 weeks out from your competition. Alteration costs are included, however, postage costs are to be paid by the client – sending it back to me for alterations is usually more cost efficient than taking it to a local tailor, but it may take a week or 2 to receive, which is why I recommend ordering 5-8 weeks in advance. I make all the suits with extra straps on the sides of  the bottoms so in the event it needs to be let out, there is plenty of material to do so. 

ALL SALES ARE FINAL, however, we do exchange/alter suits if they don’t fit properly, and store credit is and option as well.

 

Connector Options and Costs

The most basic suit starts at $90 - this is just the suit itself, custom fit and tailored to your body - no connectors, just tie straps.

You are free to upgrade and get crystal connector and stones to personalize your suit. Connector upgrades include, but are not limited to: A set of 2 for the top straps, A set of 2 for the bottom straps and 1 center connector for the top. You can also request crystal connectors for the back of the top as well. 

Connectors price range is as low as $8 to $55 for a set of 2. You can choose which connectors you prefer for the top/bottom of the suit. 

 

Rhinestone Design Upgrades

 

We use only use Genuine Swarovski Crystals for the most brilliant shine and ultimate

 

All the crystals are adhered to the top and bottom, by hand, on the front and back of your suit with very durable adhesive, then heat pressed to ensure they're secure. All rhinestone upgrades come with extra crystals (10-20) in the event any of them should ever fall off. Below are the different rhinestone upgrade options and the costs based on the size of the top.

Suit Cut and Styles

Top

 

All suit tops have a slot for removable inserts. Every suit comes with a basic foam insert. A silicone insert can be purchased for an additional cost of $12. Silicone inserts can enhance your bust up to one full cup size.  

The bottom sides of the triangle tops are sewn to the center connector to create extra lift in the bust. If there is too much lift, the stiches can be easily cut and removed so the triangles can shift to your liking.

Types of Bottom Coverage

Each organization has different rules and regulations regarding the types of bottom coverage that competitors wear. Please look into which is required for your competition, as we will make whatever you request.

Measurement Guide

***** Please make sure not to measure your garments, but your body*****

 

Top (Bikini & Figure)

 

1.)   Length - The length in the photo would be 6".  A good frame of reference: the top of the triangle is usually in line with your armpit.

2.)   2.) Width - Measure the width of the top from the middle. If you prefer a skinny triangle, please let me know so I can adjust the measurements accordingly. The width of the top in the picture would be 5".

Bottoms for Bikini

 

3.)    Measure your hips where your suit would sit. Usually this is where your undergarments sits vs a regular bikini

4.)   In-seam - Measure where you would like your bottoms to start in the front all the way to the back where the crevice of your butt ends. Usually the front starts where your panties would normally sit. The picture shown is 16.5"
