Are you entering a bikini competition or beauty pageant this summer? Here are some tips that can help you win.

1. Have fun
Bikini contests are supposed to be fun, if the audience see you and see a person who would prefer to be somewhere else you are hopeless.

2. Smile and show teeth
You are having fun, remember?

3. High heels
Walking on high heels gives you a better posture and your legs and body will look better, but make sure you can walk on those heels! If not it will only look stupid.

4. A dark tan
A well tanned body show off your features in a better way and hides spots and bruises.

5. Shake that booty
The audience truly appreciate a shaking bum. But it's no good if you look like a robot. Practice a little bit in front of the mirror in advance to make sure you do it the right way (hot, smooth and sexy).

6. Flirt with the audience
Say hello to them and throw them some kisses to encourage some positive responses. It is well appreciated.

7. Choose a shiny bikini
Wear a shiny bikini in strong colors. A glossy pink bikini will be a lot more easy on the eyes than a boring black one.

8. Icy cold?
When you enter the stage your bikini needs to have two bumps indicating that you just came out of a cold room. It just looks better!

9. Confidence
Act confident and secure on stage, but don't take it too far. No one wants a snobby girl to win.

10. The prettiest girl will not always win
It is not the most attractive body that wins. You do not need to have gigantic breasts or ass cheeks made of steel. But you must show that you love your body and you are confident in showing it off. A pretty girl on the stage, is just that, a pretty girl. Do your best and show enthusiasm and you'll make a more lasting impact on the audience and the judges.
