How long will it take to make my posing suit?

The following applies to women's posing suits ordered more than 2 weeks in advance. Men should refer to the last paragraph of this answer.

In most cases you will receive your posing suit at least 2 weeks prior to your competition date. It's a good idea, however, to order the suit more than 5 weeks ahead of your competition date. Here's why:

Orders placed less than 5 weeks prior to the competition date carry an extra $50 charge, less than 2 weeks—$80.

FOR MEN: Men's posing trunks will be shipped 5-8 days after the payment is processed (usually within 24 hours). Please, allow up to 7 additional days for shipping. Contact Nina with any questions before ordering.
