The Figure Universe format shows have become extremely popular since its introduction in 2005. It offers a competitive forum with a pageantry format for ladies whom have an athletic body with a slightly muscular appearance.

There are three divisions based upon age. However, mature competitors may compete in any age division.

  • Open Division (Any Age)
    – Short Class
    – Tall Class
  • Classic Division (35+ Years of Age)
  • Masters Division (45+ Years of Age)
  • Professional Division (Prequalified Only)

Height classes will be set following competitor registration to provide balanced distribution.


There’s one major difference between Ms. Bikini and Figure competitors – body condition. While Ms. Bikini competitors must have an athletic, shapely and sexy appearance, Figure Universe may be slightly muscular, have low body fat but still present a shapely look. Ladies who have a more natural muscular body would best compete in Figure while those with a softer but still toned body best compete in Ms. Bikini. Sample competitor images are presented for reference.


There is one competitive round at Figure Universe in which competitors must wear a two piece swimsuit. Competitors will walk in a ‘H’ or ‘T’ configuration (depending upon the stage design). Judges will call for quarter turns when contestants must present an erect and stiff body posture. However, posing in an overly sexual or manner including bending over in a reverse position, moves indicative of a stripper or other provocative body positions and/or movements will result in a deduction of points at the discretion of the Compliance Judge. Finally, judges will line-up all contestants in their respective height classes and call for group comparisons. Shoes must be a standard high heel and no clog to exaggerate a competitor’s height.


The two piece swimsuit may have high, side cuts and extremely thin straps to extenuate competitor body lines. However, no thong or ‘T’ cuts are permitted. This is distinctly different from the more standard swimsuit designs as required in both the Ms. Bikini and Fitness competitions. Sample competitor images are presented for reference.


Figure Universe will be judged by bodybuilding trainers, coaches and professional bodybuilders. Ms. Bikini judges are fitness coaches and trainers, talent agents, photographers and others representing mainstream sport disciplines. Prospective competitors contemplating which event to select should consider that the perspective of each set of judges will reflect their experiences and expertise.


Walking, turning and posing in an overly sexual manner including bending over in a reverse position, spreading of legs beyond shoulder width, moves indicative of a stripper or other provocative body positions and/or movements will result in a deduction of points at the discretion of each judge.


Competitors can participate in more than one event if they choose including Ms. Bikini, Figure, Fitness, Model and/or Bodybuilding. Each event will be scored by a completely different panel of judges, so competitors placing in respective events may vary according significantly. A Ladies Event Comparison chart is provided for reference.
