The 2017 competition season has reached its end…
So let the cookie season commence!
Ha! Of course, in moderation. But, all jokes aside, going into offseason can be just as stressful as starting a prep. And one major aspect of the competition life that you shouldn’t have to worry about is your suit.
Your show suit should be regarded as “Black Tie Event” jewelry. I’m talking about Met Gala level di-a-monds that only gets to see the light of day once a year (and yes, I did say “diamonds” with extra drama).
That’s where your offseason practice suit comes in! It can be made in the same cut and style as your show suit, but without treating it with all the associated delicacy. So, let’s discuss the benefits of having your very own practice posing suit (bikini or figure/physique):
- As mentioned before, your practice suit is not as delicate as your show suit. If you’re like me, you like squeezing in posing sessions after killer, and sweaty, workouts. And, again, if you’re like me…you don’t like getting butt sweat on your nice, fancy things!
Queue: Practice Suits! If you’re a figure/physique competitor, the bottoms of the MIKO practice suits can be thrown into the washing machine using the delicate cycle and mild detergent. How easy is that?!
Bikini practice suit bottoms will still have rhinestone connectors, therefore, they cannot be thrown into the machine (Sorry, ladies!). But, you can still hand scrub them with mild detergent. Because there are no rhinestone crystals glued or sewn in, you’ll be able to clean that butt sweat with a little more rigor than your show suit.
- Practice suits are made to fit your gorgeous offseason gains. Your custom show suit was designed and constructed to your body’s leanest state. But, it is not in any human’s best interest to maintain a show bod all year round. So you will not always want to stuff your beautiful curves into your teeny weeny show suit. Another drumroll, please….Practice Suits! You’ll have the same, or a similar, cut to your show suit, but with more forgiveness.
- MIKO practice suits have built in adjustable straps. Adjustable straps are especially advantageous for the figure/physique competitor in her offseason. Why? Because your wings are going to GROW! And as your lats expand, your back straps will also need to grow in order to cover the distance of your massive gains.
Although practice suits may alleviate much of your offseason stress (like getting consistent progress pictures, a suit that fits your gains, no butt sweat worry), they are still another expense. Let’s face it, competing is expensive! MIKO practice suits are $150 for custom suits and $100 for Ready-to-Ship (aka ready made) suits. Yes, that’s a pretty penny, but you also don’t want to be in a position in which your $500+ show suit was somehow ruined due to overuse in the offseason.
Again, show suit equals di-a-monds.
So, as we slide into the season of gains and cookies, consider gifting yourself with a practice posing suit! Check back regularly for Ready-to-Ship practice suits.
