hi guys,

My fiance is going to compete in tall bikini class and I am not sure about the swim suit. NPC rules say the bottom of suit have to be V shape, but from last year NPC Metropolitan, I could see some girls didnt use V shape but normal bikini shape.

I attach the photo of the suit we have.
Please, let me know,

Thanks in advance,

Congrats to your girlfriend for prepping for the Met! It's a great show. We're going to have coverage of the Arnold Amateurs March 4th. I'd say check it out here and check out the pics we post on the Bikini competitors to get a better idea. The pic you posted is a style I've seen on some girls and Suitsyouswimwear.com are really good. Lucy and Clyde are nice people.

Sorry, yes it seems to be a good suit style for her to wear in bikini. If in doubt, it doesn't hurt to contact Steve and Bev. The info (link) Sioux posted should be helpful.

Hello my Friends,

Here I am, ready to compete once again! This time, it is for the New York Pro show taking place in a few days.

As soon as I was off the stage at the Arnold, I wished to compete again with the Pros. And, since I am very stubborn when I want something, I did not cheat, I did not skip gym and I went back to my training/dieting program immediately with this new competition in mind. It is very tiring, to say the least. But, the reward of doing what you love most is stronger than everything.

Since the Arnold, I analyzed my choreography in the smallest details and decided to modify it with things, which I think, will give a better visual result and also demonstrate my strength and capabilities more efficiently. It was challenging to design it from another angle but so motivating in the end. I am very proud of what I did and can’t wait to present it at the competition. These small changes feel like a breath of fresh air and give me wings to perform at a higher level. In a few words, I really didn’t rest since the Arnold! I also fine tuned my physique by lowering my body fat % even more and worked on my legs definition. My body is reacting very well and very quickly to the diet this time around. I have been stage-ready for a few days now, so I all have to do is maintain until I leave for New York.


I am very motivated and so looking forward to participating in this Show. I know it will give me another valuable experience. Being a new Pro, it is important for me to be seen as much as possible. And what could seem like starting from scratch is actually a total new energy for me. The competitors will probably the same ones who were at the Arnold and I am looking forward to seeing my friends again and meeting new faces. It will be an “interesting” Easter week-end, very different but very valuable. But, not for long! I want to be at the IFBB Europa Show on April 17th, in Orlando!

Can't wait to see you all in NY.

Interesting name there. If I remember right, she is serbian or croatiann. Bojana competed at IFBB World Championships 2009, placed 5th in short figure class. Then attended at Arnold Am this year, was runner up in class A.

Hey guys! Just back from the show (and a nap :) ). It went very quickly!

Kristal Martin was in the tall class. It was a close battle between her and the woman in the yellow bikini (who was in Brandy's pic) for first place. If I had to give it to someone, I would say Kristal should take the win. She is what bikini is all about. Classy, poised, and statuesque. And she had the best ass up there!

I have to say one thing...I watched all of bikini, and some of the posing was VERY provacative and outright TRASHY. I swear, some women might have been trying to give the judges a straight-up-the-ass shot. No one wants to give you a rectal exam ladies! It is disgusting. And I think the "straddle pose" when facing the rear should be outlawed. Some of these women had their legs spread so far out, I thought I was in a strip club. The short class girl in the red bikini (who will probably take first) got all the men in the audience stirred up when she faced the rear, spread em, and stuck it out for the entire world to see. Cat calls were going out from the men in the audience. It was really CLASSLESS. Sorry if she's a member here, but that kind of posing should be outlawed. Similar thing happened with the tall class. There was another girl in the short class, purple bikini, she posed all straddled-out also. TOTALLY GROSS.

However, Kristal posed with elegance, grace, and like a lady, and I would hate to see her come in second to someone just because her posing wasn't as slutty. But, it is what is it. I hope she wins!! She is a great spokeswomen for the bikini division.

Anyway, sorry for the rant!

Congrats to all the figure ladies from this board who competed. We were shouting out for all our SC girls.

Pro fitness - I think Trish won the physique round. Tanji looked great, a little softer than the Arnold, but looked a tad too muscular versus the rest of the lineup. Bethany's shape is hard to beat. I thought Kayde looked fantastic, and I thought Lauren looked amazing and would have had her in the first callout to be compared to some of these other ladies. Wish I could have seen the routines, but I won't be going back for the night show.

Nick looked his best yet! It was a close battle between him and another guy for first - but I think he took the class. Super excited for him!!!

I swear, some women might have been trying to give the judges a straight-up-the-ass shot. No one wants to give you a rectal exam ladies! It is disgusting. And I think the "straddle pose" when facing the rear should be outlawed. Some of these women had their legs spread so far out, I thought I was in a strip club. The short class girl in the red bikini (who will probably take first) got all the men in the audience stirred up when she faced the rear, spread em, and stuck it out for the entire world to see. Cat calls were going out from the men in the audience. It was really CLASSLESS. Sorry if she's a member here, but that kind of posing should be outlawed. Similar thing happened with the tall class. There was another girl in the short class, purple bikini, she posed all straddled-out also. TOTALLY GROSS.

However, Kristal posed with elegance, grace, and like a lady, and I would hate to see her come in second to someone just because her posing wasn't as slutty. But, it is what is it. I hope she wins!! She is a great spokeswomen for the bikini division.

Anyway, sorry for the rant!

Congrats to all the figure ladies from this board who competed. We were shouting out for all our SC girls.

Pro fitness - I think Trish won the physique round. Tanji looked great, a little softer than the Arnold, but looked a tad too muscular versus the rest of the lineup. Bethany's shape is hard to beat. I thought Kayde looked fantastic, and I thought Lauren looked amazing and would have had her in the first callout to be compared to some of these other ladies. Wish I could have seen the routines, but I won't be going back for the night show.

Nick looked his best yet! It was a close battle between him and another guy for first - but I think he took the class. Super excited for him!!!

Thanks for the update, Danielle!!

Kristal Martin was in the tall class. It was a close battle between her and the woman in the yellow bikini (who was in Brandy's pic) for first place. If I had to give it to someone, I would say Kristal should take the win. She is what bikini is all about. Classy, poised, and statuesque. And she had the best ass up there!

BOO!!! :banghead: I hate hearing this!! I feel like it takes away from what the division could be! Ugh!! Come on bikini ladies, CLEAN IT UP FOR THE REST OF US!
Danielle, thanks for the play by play! I have been away from the computer all day helping out at our local show. There, the judges (John Simmons was doing callouts) asked the ladies to stand with their feet together with their hands at their sides for the back pose. This also happened at my show when I won!! I wish they would do this across the NPC for a more accurate gauge of the backside!

Awesome Danielle! Thanks for updating us. :waving: I wish they were a member of this site, so they could read how women feel about such posing.

Bantamweight?! :rofl: You are too funny. It's driving me nuts that they only have fitness and figure pics up so far!

Thanks for that update. I missed most of it since i had to go to the ladies room. However, I've talked to some of the ladies watching the show and yes, it seems that these girls posing too provacative and slutty in bikini left a bad taste in their mouths as well. The little I did get to see wasn't anything exciting. Def thought the class I had watched needed to take posing workshops.

I was a little disappointed in the show. It was not as competitive as it has been in the past.

Pro Fitness - We were off to the side a bit, but from the head on pics, I like Bethany for the win. Based on judge's placings, I think it will be Trish, Tanji, Bethany, Tina. Kayde's lines are great, but I like her when she's harder personally. Tough as nails getting up there injured! Kristina is the cutest thing ever. I love her. Lauren was a pleasant surprise; I liked her look a lot.

Am Fitness - Sue Dent all day. I love her look, and she needs to quit doing Figure. They don't reward her there - it's a waste of money.

Figure - Charmayne Jackson in B for the overall. B was the most competitive class.

FBB - Very underwhelming. Get in shape and learn to pose, please ladies.

Thanks for the update Vanessa. I personally like Tanji's physique the best but I think they won't award her for it. I also like Kayde when she's hard. She looks fantastic. It's hard to figure out what they want.

I agree iwth you on Sue Dent...stick with fitness. She looks the best for sure! I also agree with you on Charmayne! And that's just me looking at pics...not even being there.

I actually agree with you as well there. Just went back and looked at photos from those. You are right. I still hate the fact that girls feel they have to come in 'softer' at times to win a show. Oh well!

I hope you are having a blast!!!

Thanks for the coverage Mel and love the candid pic, especially you and Wynne! Sorry I missed it but too much going on here to make it in and the night show is just too late for me (sad but true).

IMO - Bethany is the winner in the physique round, her shape is unbeatable and I bet her routine tonight will be killer.. missed not getting to see it at The Arnold with her wardrobe malfunction... from the very early bit we saw it seemed like it would be FUN and packed.

Have fun at the night show everyone, can't wait to see the results and more pics!
