Swimsuit. Finally, you get to show off all of your hard work at the gym! However, in order to have a truly flawless look, you have to learn one of the most important tricks in the book: butt glue.

Butt glue comes in two main forms—spray and roll-on. I would suggest roll-on, since I think it targets the desired main parts of your body (versus spraying all around it, too). This is important because swimsuit isn’t the only category of competition, and no one likes having their evening gown glued to their derriere. It also makes for an easier cleanup. Butt glue is essential to any competition, no matter what system. A saggy suit can dramatically affect your score and can be the difference between first, and first runner-up.
Your main focus when using the glue is to hold your swimsuit nice and tight, without any wrinkles or saggy extra material. Thus, for the bottoms, you must apply it to the side of your gluteus maximus, your lower back, and in front around the hip bones. For the swimsuit top (once you have your gel bras in or whatever you use), you want to center on the cleavage area, and outer part of the swimsuit.

Most butt glues are a type of liquid latex glue, so usually warm water and a wipe rag will get it off; however, there are a few remedies to removing butt glue. Keep some baby wipes in your pageant bag. Those should remove it enough until you get home and can shower. If you’re still having issues getting it off after a shower, a dab of rubbing alcohol should do the trick. I think the best product to use is Hold Up Body Adhesive! I have used it in all of my pageants and I swear by it. It washes off with water and is about $12. And one will last you your pageant career. LOL .
Don’t forget this article when you’re applying! My first pageant I used spray adhesive. It was HORRIBLE. It barely kept my suit in place and took me three days to completely wash it off. Buy some butt glue and don’t go without it! Save Save
