♛ Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a list of our frequently asked questions. Please read carefully and if you have any further questions, please contact us.

1. Do you have rental or pre-made/ready to ship competition suits?
    • No, all of our competition suits are custom, made to order and tailored.
    2. How do I begin to order a Goddess Glam custom competition suit?
    • Two ways:
        • Contact Maria to schedule either an in-person or virtual consultation.
        • Navigate through the Shop pages of our site to find a competition you love. Fill out the accompanying order form on that suit's product page, and Maria will follow up to finalize the details of, as well as schedule important dates for, your order.
        • If you do not see a suit on our website that you would love to order, you may also "Create Your Own" suit, and we will work together to create a suit that has never been made before just for you.
          3. What is Goddess Glam's order process?
          • Step 1: To begin, either fill out an online order form on our website, or schedule an in-person/virtual consultation. Together we will discuss and finalize all order details, as well as establish an order schedule.
          • Step 2: After your initial appointment (whether in person or virtually), the next step will be for you to try on your suit. At this point in the order process, your suit will not yet be embellished, and it will be pinned in certain areas. This will allow us to size the suit properly without crystals getting in the way of any necessary alterations. This step is crucial, and Goddess Glam is, to its knowledge, the only competition suit company in the USA (at least) who provides a tailored, personalized competition suit order experience such as ours.
            • If you meet with Maria for an in-person fitting, you will meet with her at her home studio for her to assist in properly assessing and sizing your suit. Photos and videos will be taken for reference. Be sure to bring shoes and even jewelry if you'd like!
            • If you do not meet for an in-person fitting, Maria will have your suit shipped to you, and you will have an Online Fitting Assessment (OFA) instead. Upon this shipment of your suit, you will receive an email with detailed OFA instructions. Though not in-person, you will still be communicating directly with Maria either via email or video call (FaceTime/Whatsapp) to properly assess the fit of your suit. 
          • Step 3: After the fitting/OFA, your suit will be altered as deemed necessary and prepared for stonework.
          • Step 4: Stonework. AKA, Magic 🤩
          • Step 5: Once the stonework for your suit is complete, we will pack it up nicely (in one of our Goddess Glam storage & carrying cases if you opt for one) and prepare it for either pick-up or a final shipment. 
            • If picking up, you will, again, meet at Maria's home studio to try it on one last time before taking it home. Definitely bring your shoes and jewelry again! There's a huge mirror there with some GREAT lighting. Take advantage 😀
            • If not picking up, your suit will be mailed to you.
          4. How will I know if my suit will fit me correctly?
              • All of our suits are customarily made to each athlete’s measurements and body stats. Height, hip measurements, bra size, whether or not you have implants, weight loss and more are all accounted for when creating a custom suit. Furthermore, every client has the opportunity to try her suit on before stonework is applied (extra shipping rates apply for international clients). This way, any necessary adjustments can be done ahead of time without crystals getting in the way, and you will not have to worry about having alterations made right before your show.
              • If you are local to Dallas/Fort Worth, or at least willing to travel, it is highly recommended to meet with Maria in person for your fitting. We are especially grateful to athletes who have traveled from different parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Louisiana, Illinois, Missouri, even parts of Northeast USA, for at least one of their appointments.
              • Not local? No problem! Your suit will otherwise be mailed to you for an online fitting assessment (again, extra shipping rates apply for international orders). When we would mail the suit to you for an online fitting assessment, you will receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information, as well as specific instructions for trying on your suit so Maria can properly assess the fit of each suit. 
              • Be sure to notify us of any special requests for your suit on your online order form/during your consultation when ordering (i.e. higher bottom cut due to c-section scars, wide-set implants, preference of coverage for bottoms, etc.).
              5. What kind of bottom cut should I get?
                • Firstly, we do not offer our clients choices for bottom cut styles (i.e. pro, brazilian, moderate, etc.) Instead, we have dozens of top/bottom patterns, which are completely exclusive to Goddess Glam and NO other designer in the world, to accommodate different hip measurements, heights and body compositions. In sizing your suit, we would choose a set of patterns we feel would fit you best, and after your in-person fitting/online fitting assessment, we would alter the suit however necessary to fit you as perfectly as possible, even if that means cutting and sewing entirely new cups, bottoms or even a whole new suit! We have gone to great lengths to create and update our patterns as much as we feel necessary, as well as to make sure our clients are completely comfortable and flattered in their suits. In fact, many times we have created new patterns to accommodate just one client!
                • Generally all of our bikini bottoms are slightly heart-shaped and have a scrunch in the center of the back to enhance round, peachy glutes. Figure/physique suits are cut to have a sharp, deep V in the front and back without any back scrunch. Though every suit is customized to each athlete’s liking and measurements, we do still have a particular way of cutting our suits as we feel this way looks most professional, sophisticated and overall most flattering across the board.
                6. Am I able to return/exchange my suit?
                  • No, we have strict terms on no returns/exchanges/refunds.
                  • All suits are made completely from scratch, embellished by hand, and customarily made and altered exactly to each client’s liking and measurements. We do everything we can within reason to eliminate any flaws in your suit before the stonework is applied and especially before the final product is delivered. Because of this, suits may not be returned nor exchanged, and no refunds will be granted at any time. Read more in our Terms & Conditions.
                  7. How much do your suits cost?
                    • Goddess Glam custom competition suits can be priced anywhere between $200 up to $1500 depending on the amount of stonework, choice in connectors, and whether you embellish with our Budget Bling or our Olympian Bling. Navigate through the Shop pages of our website for custom examples of suits and their prices.
                    8. What is the difference between your Olympian Bling and Budget Bling?
                      • Our Olympian Bling crystals are the highest quality, most luminous and most uniquely colored crystals in the world. With a wide variety of cuts, colors, sizes and shapes, there really is no limit in combining these elements in designing an original creation of a competition suit. Historically, the crystals we have named as our Olympian Bling have been featured on numerous occasions, such as on the star which tops the Rockefeller Christmas tree in New York City, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Phantom of the Opera, Sex and the City 2, and on performance clothing worn by world-renowned celebrities like Michael Jackson and Madonna. This is the level of quality we prefer and strive to bring to our competition suits.
                      • Our Budget Bling is a collection of rhinestones, imitation stones of higher quality gems, like diamonds, crystals, etc. They cost much less than Olympian Bling, which in turn lowers the price of a Budget Bling competition suit to accommodate a lower budget. The color selection for our Budget Bling is extremely limited, and most of our designs, especially on our figure and women’s physique suits, will only be embellished with our Olympian Bling to preserve the integrity and uniqueness of each design. Our Budget Bling is, of course, not as high of quality, durability and brilliance as our Olympian Bling is,  however, they certainly still look bright and blingy on stage. Over time, the shininess of our Budget Bling will fade; the brilliance of our Olympian Bling will last forever.
                      • Compare Budget Bling suits on the Shop pages of our website.
                      9. My boobs are so small, and/or I do not have breast implants. Does padding come with your suits?
                        • Absolutely, every suit comes with one set of foam-padded cups, and additional padding is available for an additional cost. Have no fear!
                        • If you take a look at our Instagram page (@Goddessglamsuits), you will see many photos of our gorgeous clients and notice that not one girl looks flat-chested. 🙂
                        10. How long will it take for me to receive my finished suit?
                          • To assure a proper fit of your suit on show day, all suit orders are scheduled to be picked up/shipped at 1-2 weeks out from show dates unless sooner delivery is requested.
                          11. How do I clean/care for my suit?
                            • To remove tan stains, it is best to simply spot-treat the lining and edges of the suit to remove excess tanner only with cool water, mild detergent and a soft washcloth or gentle cleaning brush for gentle scrubbing. Lay out to dry. DO NOT submerge in water, DO NOT machine wash/dry and absolutely NO dry cleaning. Our glue used to apply the crystals is water soluble, so hand-washing or soaking your suit in water will soften the glue, which will result in loose or missing crystals.
                            • DO NOT swim in your bikini (again, no submerging in water, especially chlorinated water).
                            • Wipe down Swarovski crystals or Budget Bling with a clean, soft cotton or microfiber cloth to keep them clear and fingerprint-free. If any tanner, oil or glue residue gets on the crystals, you can clean off the crystals with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab to restore them back to their brilliance.
                            • Leave all shoulder and back straps untied when storing/carrying your suit. This will prevent any potential twisting and/or breaking of connectors.
                            • Store your suit in a Goddess Glam Case, and fold it respectfully to keep it from rubbing up against other garments or attracting dust. DO NOT stuff your suit in your show day bag when carrying it around at your show.
                            • Your suit is best stored at room temperature. DO NOT leave your suit in your car in extreme temperatures for an extended period of time.
                            • With hologram fabrics, avoid excessive exposure to UV rays as this will dull the shine in the fabrics over time.
                            • Our suits are made to last and be reworn several times, but that does not mean they are indestructible! Always handle with care. Xoxo
