Athlete Attire

Posing Suit

A 2-piece competition bikini style suit will be worn for the Online Contest. Please choose a quality-made suit appropriate for fitness model competition. The suit will cover a minimum of 33% of the gluteus maximus and all of the frontal area; No G-strings, thongs etc.

Posing suit must be in good taste. As we know the suits are becoming smaller in the back over the years with many organizations so we will be flexible if you already own a suit and are unsure about the coverage on the back. If you are unsure about your suit please contact the IDFA / NAW prior to competition.

Note: You must have the appropriate posing suit for the division you are entered in.

JEWELLERY

Small earrings, bracelets and wedding rings area permitted. (Your jewellery should not overpower, or take attention away, from your physique.)

Clear heels are worn for both rounds. Can either be slip-on style (as shown in image below) or with straps. Heel no higher than 5″. Sole no higher than 1.5″. No platform heels.

We will need a photo of each mandatory pose. We will also need a VIDEO of you performing all the mandatory poses.

For the Photos and Video make sure we see your entire body from the bottom of your foot to the top of your head. You can not edit or use filters on the Photos and Video. For the Video, if you are using your phone, hold it upright (or vertically). We will be putting together a Contest Coverage and Results video for every online competition.

To validate the date we will need one photo of you holding a piece of paper with the code word on it. We will be emailing the code word out to all the athletes late the evening before the online competition.

Send your Photos and Videos submissions to info@idfa.ca.  We can also use sending files sites such as DropBox, Wetransfer, etc.  If you prefer another method for sending Photos and Videos please email Shaun at info@idfa.ca.  The main file sharing programs we use are Dropbox and WeTransfer.
