CUSTOM POUCH PATTERNS

For the absolute BEST fit, consider a custom pouch pattern (POF-Pattern On File)!  Instead of enlarging or reducing pouch depth, I recommend an overall enlargement or reduction of the standard pouch patterns.  This will maintain design integrity while adjusting the pouch design to your own anatomy.  If you usually order a DECREASED pouch depth, I would suggest starting with a 5% reduction.  If you usually INCREASE pouch depth, I would suggest a 5% enlargement.  For guys who inject silicone, I would consider starting with a 20% enlargement.  You are not limited to simply enlarging or reducing the pattern, other changes such as pouch height can also be designed into your pattern.  Once you receive the first item using your POF, contact me.  If you need me to tweak the pattern to improve the fit, that is done at no additional charge on future orders.  Your POF can be used with any seat style or side width.  Re-ordering is easy, and you'll always get the perfect fit because YOU designed the pattern!  To see how a POF can improve the fit, look at any of the suits shown on the website in either black or white.  These are the STANDARD suits as shown on the model.  Then go to the COLORS tab and click on the swatch for CANTALOUPE.  The Cantaloupe suit is a fully customized suit designed for the model's tastes and anatomy.

Custom pouch patterns are available for a charge of $5 per pattern and are subject to a fee of $3 per order (not item) on future orders.  Some larger pouch patterns (such as an enlargement of 21% or more) may require an additional fee per item for excess fabric usage.  EXAMPLE:  We can reduce or enlarge the overall Poser pattern to give you a much better fit than simply adding or reducing pouch depth.  

G-Poser Patterns:  The Poser style works exceptionally well as a POF.  Adding 2 darts under the front pouch improves the fit even more! (This also works on the Torpedo).  The G-darts make the suit even more body hugging than the regular Poser suits (even with a custom pattern).  The darts increase "lift" similar to wearing a c-ring under the suit.  G-Poser and G-Torpedo suits require a POF, and incur an additional charge of $2 per suit.


ADDITIONAL CHARGES  (Effective July 2018)

Offline custom requests (anything typed into the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box), require more time to produce your order.  In order to service all clients in a timely manner, there will be a $2 service charge for all suits with 2 or more requests typed in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box, with the exception of a POF (Pattern on File, or Custom Pattern request), or DSO request.  These orders will still be allowed ONE more additional request at no extra charge.  If your order requires an additional charge, I will inform you when I confirm your order and send a separate invoice for the additional charges.  Your order is not conssidered as "placed" until this invoice is paid.  


SIZE OPTIONS

HALF SIZES  To order an "in between waist size", order in the size you want the SEAT to be made.  In the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box, type the sizes you want your waist to fit in between.  EXAMPLE:  To order a suit with a waist between medium and large, with a large seat, order size LARGE (for the seat), and type "M/L" in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box.

SEAT SUBSTITUTIONS  A larger or smaller seat pattern can be used with any waist pattern.  In the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box, type the substitution seat needed.  EXAMPLE:  To order a LARGE waist, but a MEDIUM sized seat, order the suit in LARGE and in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS BOX type "use M seat".  Please note that using a larger sized seat may require other modifcations on a case by case basis.


POUCH and SEAT RISE OPTIONS

All Muscleskins suits are designed to be low rise.  In many cases, the rise may be altered to improve fit for your body type and fit preference.  Please note that these instructions are generalized and may be unavailable in some cases.  If you are unsure, please contact us before ordering.

POUCH RISE  The front rise can be lowered or raised up to 2 cm for most styles at no additional charge.  Any pouch rise change of 3cm or greater will require a custom pattern.  Please contact us for any pouch alterations beyond 2cm.  The Torpedo and Poser styles can only be raised.  Requests to lower Torpedo or Poser pouch heights will be disregarded.  Only requests in FULL centimeter incriments can be accepted.  EXAMPLE:  To lower the Pouch height on any suit by 1cm, type -1PH in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box.  To raise it by 1cm, type +1PH.  (PH indicates pouch height).  Note that these modifications are done as an "eyeball cut" and may vary slightly from suit to suit.  For more consistency, we suggest a full custom pattern.  Please note that raising or lowering pouch height may result in pouch WIDTH becoming wider or narrower... usually narrower.  If you require the same pouch width on your items, custom patterns are the best option.

SEAT RISE  The seat rise can be made lower or higher by request in full centimeter incriments.  The maximum recommended change is 3cm, but can be more in some cases.  EXAMPLE:  To raise the seat height by 2cm, type +2SH in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box.  To lower it by 2cm, type -2SH.  (SH indicates seat height)


CUSTOM SEATS

"In between" seats are available by request.  If you want a seat "in between" two of our standard seat options, order the larger seat version and indicate the change needed in the CUSTON INSTRUCTIONS box.  EXAMPLE:  If you want a seat midway between a HALF-SEAT and RIO, order the HALF-SEAT and type "half-seat/rio" in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box.  Be sure to order the seat in the LARGER size, in this case, the half-seat!  If you order it as a Rio, your order will incur extra charges and will be delayed until resolved.  NOTE:  Full seat is the largest possible and RIO is the smallest.  Seats between a RIO and THONG are not available.

Please contact us if you need other seat modifications, charges may apply on a case by case basis.  STRING thongs are NOT available.


WAIST OPTIONS  

DSO (Drawstring only) Instead of the covered elastic waist, the DSO option can be substituted.  There is no waist elastic.  This gives more flexibility in fit and comfort.  Instead of elastic, a channel of fabric is sewn into the top of the suit which includes a drawstring.  The drawstring exits the front center of the suit through a V-notch and can be tucked inside or left hanging outside of the suit.  The waist channel can be the same color as the base suit, or a contrasting color.  The DSO option is not available on 3/8" suits, only 1/2" sides or greater.  The DSO option adds between 1 and 2cm to the overall side width.  To order the DSO option, order the base suit directly from the website.  In the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box, type "DSO" if you want the suit and waist channel to be the same color.  If you want the waist channel to be a different color, type DSO-"waist color".  Example:  For a red suit with a yellow DSO waist, order the suit in RED and in the CUSTOM INSTRUCTIONS box, type "DSO-YELLOW".  The DSO option adds $7.00 to the price of any suit.  Once we receive your order, we ill send you a separate invoice for the DSO upcharges.


CUSTOM FABRICS

I do accept client-supplied fabrics.  The fabrics MUST work with Muscleskins patterns!  All fabrics must be pre-approved before you have them shipped to me.  SpandexHouse.com and SpandexWorld.com are great sources.  All fabrics MUST be 4 way stretch!  Some polyester spandex blends will work, but can be problematic.  I suggest limiting your fabrics to 4 way stretch nylon/spandex blends.  If the fabric description says suitable for use as swimwear, yoga wear or lingerie... even better!  Avoid "coated" fabrics, metallics, vinyls, or sequins!  These fabrics do not usually work with Muscleskins patterns.  I require ONE FULL YARD cut fresh off the bolt for any client-supplied fabric.  I cannot work with remnants.  Depending on your size and the type of suits you desire, I can usually get 4-6 suits per yard.  All suits must be ordered at the same time because any remaining fabric is discarded.  All suits must be ordered at the same time.  You will not place your order until I send you an email saying that I have received your fabrics and have given final approval.  The cost per suit is usually the same as listed on this website.  But, if the fabric is especially difficult to work with, the cost can be higher.  Before you order any fabrics, please send me the hyperlink to the fabric online.  I will be happy to give you my best guess on the fabric before you buy it.  I cannot guarantee the fit on client-supplied fabrics.  The closer the fabric is to my standard fabrics, the better they will work!
