Q: When do I need to order my bikini to get it in time for my competition?

A: Normally 3-6 months ahead, depending on what type of bikini you want and depending on other customer requests. A basic suit does not require as much time as a crystal suit with special design. To be certain you get your bikini in time it is a good idea to order and pay at least 6 months ahead even if you are off season and not in competition shape, this way you are on our waiting list for your competition date. We will ask for your new and updated measurements and photos closer to your competition.

A: See the questions above. Glitzoglam goes through your order carefully before manufacturing, that way we know exactly what you want and your bikini size. Therefore no alterations are done afterwards. Normally the suits are embellished with hundreds and thousands of crystals which means it is very time consuming to remove all and start all over again with size alterations. It would be very costly and it would not look good. Make sure you take your measurements carefully.

Q: Are there any special care instructions for my suit?

A: Yes see below:

• Wash your suit with a mild soap and then rinse it in fresh water after use. Hang to dry inside or in shade.

• Wash your suits separately until any excess dye washes out.

• Most suits will bleed a little the first few washings. This is normal, the bleeding will stop.

• Most bright colored suits will fade in the sun. You can slow this down by soaking your new suit in a mixture of vinegar and water for 30 minutes. (1 tablespoon vinegar to 1 quart of water)

• Do not line dry your suit in the sun, hang it to dry in the shade.

• Use extra caution with holographic and metallic fabrics, they are very delicate. The metallic will eventually wear off. These suits are for show only. Avoid hot tubs, Jacuzzis, and highly chlorinated pools. Wash in cold water only.

• Never: bleach your suit, put it in the dryer, iron it, or wash it with whites.

• Do not sit on abrasive objects (sit on a towel when at the pool or on a boat.)

• Avoid oil based suntan lotions. Oils are harmful to swimwear elastic and will stain some fabrics.

• Hologram Fabrics – The glitter or shiny finish will come off when worn in hot tubs, jacuzzis and highly chlorinated pools.
