I need two posing suits. One for prejudging and one for the night show. Plain suits with no rhinestones start at around $80. With the sparkles, it gets spendy. Just looked at one for $550. I found a very plain suit on sale online for $40, so I bought it. If it ends up fitting ok when I’m leaner, I will use it for the prejudging. If not, it’s my practice suit that I will use for progress pictures. Because it was on sale, I really didn’t have a ton of choices for colors. I went with burgundy because I’ve been told that dark suit colors are best for prejudging. I suspect that’s because the fake tan spray gets on everything and the prejudging suit is the one you wear the longest.
I’ve been looking at a lot of pictures of competitors and their suits. I’ve decided I like the suit best when you really don’t notice it. Pretty, but not distracting. I love Dana Lin Bailey’s suit at the Desert Muscle Classic.
There is no way I can afford a suit like this, but I can get something in a similar color. I like how the pink/orange combination blends in with her tan so the suit is not distracting.
So, I’ve found this fabric online at a site that makes suits I can afford. I think it will look good with my blond hair and future fake tan. (pic for reference) Thoughts?
