My design, creating and ordering process.

WELCOME to Gingerwear!

Hello! I am Tracy Labrecque, owner and artist of Gingerwear. My background is professional costume design for over 23 years. 15 years designing and creating competition bikinis, figure suits and costumes for fitness federations worldwide. I absolutely LOVE what I do!

Every piece is custom made to fit your body and specifications. Designs are posted on my website and my Instagram page @gingerweartracylabrecque. These are designs I can recreate if you like, or any design you have in mind. I also offer, free one on one design service. Contact me to set it up.

MY DESIGN PROCESS - We will chat about the details of your suit and design it together. Color and fabric, connectors, crystal design etc. You can find all of these on my website and/or I can send pictures and or sketches of everything directly to you via email. If you have a specific fabric or color, connector etc in mind that you do not see, let me know. I have a large variety of fabrics, and embellishments for special order.

WHEN TO ORDER- The best time to order your suit is 8 - 12 weeks out from your contest. It gets very busy and there are only so many spots available. Placing your order as early as possible, ensures your spot is saved. If you are closer to your competition, contact me to check availability.

BUDGET- If you have a budget you would like to stick to, I can design your suit accordingly. Let me know and I can send you ideas to choose from within your budget. I have beautiful suits in all budgets.

SUIT STYLE AND CUT - Is there any special needs you may have? A lower abdomen scar, or more supportive top? We will discuss what top and bottom style is best for your body. The bottom back coverage will be according to your federation requirements.

MEASUREMENTS - I will need your measurements when you are within 10 lbs out from contest weight. Then I will ask for measurements again just before you suit is finished and adjust the suit if needed. I will send you a picture of your finished suit to approve.

SHIPPING- Shipping is express and 2-3 days. You will receive your suit 4-5 weeks before your contest. Unless, you do not have weight to lose and we have discussed you receiving it earlier.

COST- I require a deposit of half or the full amount if you like, to place the order. If you choose two payments, the second payment if due when the suit is finished, before it is shipped.

I work with athletes around the world, from amateur to pro level. My main focus is to create the best quality, best fitting, suit of your dreams. All the while, making the process of purchasing a competition suit easy and effortless. This is a VERY important part of the journey to the stage! I have a system, I have perfected over the years of making bikinis, figure suits and costumes from measurements since almost all of my clients are afar. You will have one on one customer service and a great experience with Gingerwear! Let's create your dream suit! Thanks so very much, Tracy - - 250-755-5021
