Making your own posing suit is simple, and it's easy to produce a piece exactly right for you. Everyone's body is different, so creating your own suit to your exact measurements lets you show off your figure to its maximum potential. You can also customize it however you wish – there are loads of ways to decorate your suit which will help you stand out in competitions or just add a twinkle to your poses.
Find a pattern. They are available on-line, but if you can't find a suitable one, make a template using a bikini or bra and knickers (briefs for men).
Choose your fabric. Lycra or Spandex-based materials are recommended for posing suits. The fabrics can be bought from fabric stores or ordered on-line.
Choose the right size on the pattern for you (measure yourself with a tape measure as sizes vary) and pin the pattern to your fabric.
Cut the fabric and the pattern together to produce the shape for your suit.
Create a lining for the crotch area and pin it in place on your fabric.
Sew up the seams using polyester and nylon blend thread. You can do this with a sewing machine, or by hand if you don't have one.
Decorate your posing suit however you like. Use iron-on patterns, beads and rhinestones from your local craft or fabric shop to add some extra sparkle.
