How to Find Your Swimsuit Power Pose

Finding Your Power Pose in Swimsuit

Finding Your Power Pose in Swimsuit

The swimsuit competition is one of the most intimidating phases of competition.  But it gives you a chance to finally showcase all of your hard work, your days sweating in the gym, the moments you turned down that extra slice of cake, and those extra 2 miles you pushed yourself into running are finally paying off. How do you do it in a manner that best fits you? In order to determine which way will be the best for you to compete in swimsuit it will be best to start with looking in the mirror.

What features about you stand out? Do you have long legs? A long torso? Toned arms? GOOD! Find your strengths. This will be your best opportunity to try different poses and see what it will look like.  Try stances that you find to be outside of your norm.  You may discover better angles and ways to feel more confident. Here are a few suggestions to help get you started.

Swimsuit Poses for Shorter Girls

Shorter girls are always trying to find ways to look taller on stage.  Standing in a model-T (like 5th position in ballet!) makes everyone look good. But if you pull your shoulder back, you can get a nice line in your abs! This works for girls of all sizes. For shorter girls, if you pull your working leg (the one NOT planted in the ground) forward and slightly point your toe, and pull your shoulder back, it will help make you look taller. While doing this pose, be sure to turn your body so that you aren’t facing directly forward on the stage.

You want to create a nice line with your body.

Swimsuit Poses for Taller Girls

A good pose for taller girls is an open stance, with one toe slightly pointed and out to the side. This really elongates your legs and if you hit it with confidence, you’ll knock ‘em dead!

Another pose that works for most anyone is an open stance pose, with your hands on your hips. I'd like to think of this as a go-to power pose. The Current Miss America, Mallory Hagen nailed this onstage during her competition. She owned the stage and demanded all eyes on her! Whenever you're striking a pose, be conscious of your arms, even when they're on your hips. Keep them at waist level and be sure to pull your elbows back, or you'll make yourself look wide.

This applies to any pose. Hit your pose and stay there, even if it may not be the one you rehearsed. (The judges don't know you didn't plan it.) Then step into your next pose. The main thing is that you find what best fits you. If you are petite, don't choose a stance that makes your body look wide. Look in the mirror, ask a friend or consult a pageant coach. Everyone is different and each girl has her niche! Don't be afraid to look at former Miss Amercas or Miss USAs for inspiration! After all, you could be next!
