"ACB Figure suits allow you to strut the stage with a personalized touch that screams YOU. The radiance of the ‘Galaxy’ design is jaw dropping & I cannot wait to slay my first Olympia in it."
-Lola Montez, IFBB Figure Pro, Olympian
☑ Figure competitors must wear a two-piece suit with a V-shaped bottom like the Angel Competition Bikinis Figure Style.
☑ The official NPC rules do not state that your figure suit have a crisscross back. Angel Competition Bikinis make all figure suits with a crisscross back because of the popularity of the style at events. 99% of figure competitors wear a suit with a crisscross hook back.
☑ The suit bottom sits high up on the hips like the Angel Competition Bikinis Figure Style.
All styles of Angel Competition Bikinis Figure suits have been acceptable at NPC sponsored competitions. The NPC advises competitors to bring 2 suits to check-in in the event that one of your suits is not acceptable. If your suit is deemed unacceptable at check ins, you will be scored down. Because of our high quality connectors, and perfected fit, if you have an Angel Competition Bikini you do not need a back up. Our suits will NOT break. If you are ordering The Petite Cut, we strongly advise bringing a backup back cut. You may also wish to bring a back up if you would like to have a second color option on your show day. Angel Competition Bikinis Ships Tomorrow Suits make a great back up option.

☑ You most likely will be required to wear a face mask at all times.
☑ Depending on the show promoter, you may be allowed to take your mask off when you are on stage.
We are so grateful that shows have started again and completely support whatever decision the show promoter makes! Be prepared to be flexible in the coming months and know that the show promoters are doing whatever possible to get you on stage. Thank you show promoters!!

☑ Figure competitors will walk onstage and perform their posing routine alone.
There are 4 different poses for the NPC Wellnes Division; Front, Quarter Turn Right, Quarter Turn Rear, and another Quarter Turn Right.
Walk to the center of the stage. Stop and hit your front pose with CONFIDENCE in your ACBikinis Suit.
Quarter Turn Right
Complete a quarter turn and hit your side pose. Smile and show your strength!
Quarter Turn Rear
Complete another quarter turn and hit your back pose. Some figure competitors use this time to pull their hair to the front so that the judges can see their back muscles.
Quarter Turn Right
Complete one more quarter turn and hit your other side pose.
Quarter Turn back to Front
Complete your last quarter turn to face the judges in your front pose. You are AMAZING, your face should show your confidence! Option to present a signature "good-bye" which can be a wave or similar to the judges. Proceed to the side of the stage under the direction of the stage usher. Feel the accomplishment of doing something most only dream of, you did it!!!

Comparison Round Rules
☑ All Wellness competitors in your class will be brought back on stage to be judged as a group.
You will be directed by the head judge to perform your front pose and back pose. You may be required to perform your front and back pose multiple times and hold your back pose for 10+ seconds. This should be considered when you are practicing your posing. It can be very difficult for an untrained athlete to hold their best back pose longer than 10 seconds.
NOTE: The NPC does not want to see the arm off to side with the elbow bent and the wrist bent upwards or downwards.

☑ Figure competitors are judged on the following:
1. Balance and Shape. Small amount of muscularity with separation. There should be no visible striations for figure competitors. Big emphasis on balance and symmetry in the figure division.
2. Rounded delts, sweep to the quads, back depth, and width.
3. Overall physical package brought to the stage including skin tone, poise, complexion, and overall presentation.
Notice the beautiful balance and shape these figure athletes display in their Angel Competition Bikinis Figure suits.
☑ Figure Competitors should:
1. Display balanced shape with a well developed lats. Balance comes first in the figure division, we can't stress this enough!
2. Have impeccable posing! We HIGHLY recommend practicing with an Angel Competition Bikinis Posing Practice Suit. New for 2021! Our Figure Style comes in either a side tie or no side tie.
