FREE ONE ON ONE 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 3-4 months out from your contest. Please order as soon as possible to “get you place in line”, as we are very busy and it is first come, first serve. 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 - *We realize you will most likely have weight to lose before your contest. We will ask you closer to the contest for your measurements to ensure a great fit. 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 & PAYMENT PLANS- I require a deposit of half or the full amount if you like, to place the order. PAYMENT PLANS -If you would like to set up a payment plan, please contact us. This will not process through our shopping cart. You must contact us. We require a deposit of half to start working on your suit and the remaining balance paid before your suit is shipped to you. We accept payments via Paypal, or email transfer for payment plans.
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! Tracy Labrecque
