The Ms. Bikini Universe competition is quite simply a beauty contest, but with special emphasis on body shape, condition and overall attractiveness. It includes three competitive rounds. There are no qualifications to compete and the event is open to women worldwide.

The Ms. Bikini Universe initiated the Classic Division exclusively for matured competitors who are at least 35 years of age and the Masters Division for those 45+ years of age. All of the competitive Rounds are the same as the Open Divisions but with one height class.  Both the Classic & Masters Divisions will be held concurrently with the Open Division.  Competitors may participate in either the Open or Classic Divisions but not both.

  • Open Division (Any Age)
    - Short *
    - Medium *
    - Tall *
  • Classic Division (35+ Years of Age)
  • Masters Division (45+ Years of Age)

Contestants must be at least 18 years of age. No minors are permitted regardless of parental consent.  * Height classes may be adjusted following competitor registration to provide balanced distribution.


Themed Sportswear Round – 50% of Score

  • Poise & Presence – 33%
  • Sports Wear Selection – 33%
  • Appearance – 33%

You have a chance to show your modeling talents and your creativity. Just like in the swimsuit round you will be asked to walk from one side of the stage to the other performing quarter turns at a specific point outlined on stage. The themed apparel you select should best represent your character, personality, athletic interests and/or any other appearance you’re comfortable wearing. Just make sure it compliments your body. Work your magic – before you go on stage relax, enjoy your presentation and remember to smile.

Contestants must provide a brief description of their outfit in the Themed Sportswear Round. This is an opportunity for contestants to get creative with their costume and also mention the clothing sponsor, if any. No offensive costumes will be allowed (see through tops, etc.)

Bikini Round – 50%

  • Body Condition – 33%
  • Facial Beauty – 33%
  • Appearance – 33%

Judges will analyze body shape, tone, symmetry, complexion, poise presentation and overall condition. Also, they will be looking for fit, toned feminine body that display proper conditioning. Contestants will be judged individually and in group comparisons. Facial beauty will be judged during this round as well. In the Bikini Round, contestants must wear a two-piece, bikini swimsuit and high heel shoes. If a contestant is competing in both a Fitness Universe Pageant and Ms. Bikini Universe, she must wear a different swimsuit in each event. Because the Universe Weekend will be broadcast on ESPN3, ESPN International and other television networks, G-String or thong type swimsuits are not allowed. Contestants whom have a muscular appearance and/or walk and
generally carry themselves in a masculine manner will be negatively scored by the judges.


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.
