What The Our Customers Say About Us

“Since my first bodybuilding competition in 2009 Vandella Costumes has designed and created my figure competition bikinis. Earlier, like other competitors, I chose basic designs and asked Vandella Costumes for advice on cuts and colors. Kira Jones, the owner, would guide me through the entire ordering process to decide on the best bikini for me.

Over time, Vandella Costumes bikini selection expanded from stylish and affordable, to the affordable haute couture level. Normally, haute couture and affordable are not synonymous, but somehow, Vandella Costumes has made it possible for bodybuilding athletes to have one-of-a-kind bikinis without paying a fortune.

Because of Vandella Costumes creativity and eye-for-style I have had five of the most beautiful competition bikinis made. Each one fit perfectly, and set a gorgeous back drop for my stage presentation and stage presence. And, there is nothing like a beautiful suit to add to your stage confidence.

Each year I look forward to my one-of-a-kind suit from Vandella Costumes, and this year is no different. I know that Vandella Costumes will have something fabulous in store for me.”

“Kira has been making my pro level competition suits for the last six years. Her suits are exceptional beyond works of art!. Every show I do I am complimented on my suit & how well they compliment my body, thus helping me clinch many first place titles.

Thank you Kira for always providing me with an exceptional beautiful suit. I feel like I’m a winner before I step foot on the stage.”

“What can I say except that Kira is simply THE BEST suit designer in the industry! I have been competiting for 8 years and every one of my suits from novice to pro has been a Vandella Costumes one of a kind design and every new suit has been more amazing than the previous! I am also a competition coach  and recommend Kira to all of my clients. In all my years competing and coaching, I have never had one dissatisified client. Every suit is one of a kind, professionally fitted/finished and of course stunning! Because I see so many different suits when coaching and judging, I have done many comparisons with the fit, style, how they are finished, etc and I can honestly say that Kira’s suits, prices and customer service cannot be beat. Ladies, whatever you do, don’t go with the “cheapest” or just any designer for your competition suits, you’ve worked too hard to get on stage…you need a suit that compliments your hard earned phsyique and is as beaufiful as you are – Call Kira!”

Tina PeratinoOwner/Coach - Natural Figure, Physique & BB ProCenter Stage Figures & Physiques, LLC

“As a Pro-Figure and Pro-Fit body competitor with the WNBF, I look for suits that will highlight and accentuate the hard work that I put in leading up to a competition.

I have worked with Kira and Vandella Costumes to design one-of-a-kind competition suits several times and have been extremely happy with each of them. Kira has always been helpful in creating a design or running with a design that I have personally come up with. She’s always extremely helpful, staying within my budget, and giving me a beautiful, quality suits.

I’m also a posing coach and recommend Vandella to all my girls. They too, have all been very happy with their suits.

If your looking for a great competition suit and great customer service, I highly recommend Vandella Costumes!”

“I have worked with other suit designers over the past several years….and I can honestly say no one has surpassed the excellence in customer service and quality offered by Vandella Costumes! You will NOT be disappointed!”

Jennifer EspositoCompetitor & Trainer

“I was very happy with my experience with Vandella Costumes. I needed a figure competition suit for my first show. Finding something with quality that was affordable was important to me. I found Vandella Costumes online and knew after browsing through the many pictures of happy customers that I had found exactly what I needed. Being in a different state than Vandella, I ordered fabric swatches that helped me decide on the color. I have to be honest I was skeptical to order online but my finished suit arrived at the perfect size based on my measurements. I will continue to order from Vandella and recommend others to do the same!

Thank you Kira for the beautiful suit! It fit perfectly, and I got a ton of compliments on it!”
