How to Keep Your Swimsuit in Place

22, October 2014

There's nothing worse than hitting the pageant stage only to find out that your swimsuit is moving around on you. Feeling this happen can rattle your confidence and cause you to lose points in swimsuit. Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of your pageant swimsuit.

Get the Right Fit

Pageant girls tend to lose weight during pageant week if you're at the pageant for several days or more, so don't be surprised if your suit feels a little loose on preliminary night. Proper support and fit is essential. If anything, your swimsuit should be just slightly tight when you try it on. Getting it too loose before you even arrive is going to cause it to slip.

Seek Proper Coverage

Depending on the size of your backside and your chest, it's essential to know what styles work best for you. This alone can keep your suit from moving around on stage. Larger chests should not be wearing triangle string tops, for example, because they don't give the support or coverage needed for a bigger chest. Not sure what works best for you? Check out our article, "Best Pageant Swimsuit for Your Body Type" for advice.

Practice, practice, practice

Walk around your house in the suit and shoes you will wear. Where is the swimsuit moving? Is the back riding up? Do the straps on the top seem to get looser as you walk? Most people don't even know that pageant swimsuits can be altered. You should only have it done by a professional who has worked with swimsuits before, but this has been a lifesaver in the past if a certain part of the swimsuit just isn't working.

Use Adhesive

Many girls swear by it, but it can be a pain to have on adhesive once the pageant is over (you will stick to everything!). Apply adhesive carefully and practice doing it before the night of the pageant. For more advice on how to use adhesive/butt glue, check out our article on "How to Apply and Remove Butt Glue."

In an absolute pinch, hairspray can provide a light stickiness, but you should always practice with your adhesive first. You don't want the hairspray staining your suit, so only use in an absolute emergency. Spray adhesives can be found online or by going to a sports store. Check out our article on "How to Remove a Butt Glue Stain," for more tips. These simple tips can keep your swimsuit in place and help boost your score!
