Whether you're preparing for your first bikini competition, or are already a seasoned veteran, there is always more you can do to perfect your posing skills. After all, when you are standing on stage amongst a bevy of other bikini-clad beauties, the way you carry yourself can have a bigger impact on your placement than you may think. 

Posing for a bikini competition may seem pretty straight-forward, but, as CutAndJacked.com notes, there is actually a surprising amount of flexibility. In an NPC bikini competition, for example, contestants are evaluated based on their individual presentation and a group comparison. When you take to the stage solo, you must perform your model walk, which, the regulations state, consists of the following:

  1. Walk to center stage
  2. Pause and hold front hands-on-hip position
  3. Make a full turn and hold hands-on-hip back pose
  4. Turn again to resume front pose
  5. Leave stage when instructed by judges

The NPC only allows 10 seconds for this process, so you have to make sure to leave the right impression. And, according to CutAndJacked.com, that means keeping things fluid.

"Smooth transitions are crucial when walking, standing, posing and shifting into the next pose," the website states. "The key is fluid movement, which comes with practice in front of the mirror in the heels and bikini." 

Cutting down on extra steps and making your transitions as cleanly as possible can have a substantial impact on how the competition judges perceive you, so select your posing suit and competition shoes well ahead of time so you get plenty of practice running through your routine. Not only does this give you the chance to get nice and comfortable in your heels, but you'll also have the opportunity to determine the front and back poses that best accentuate your physique
