Billabong Girls has teamed up with Invista to create the ‘Design a Bikini Contest’ presented by Xtra Life Lycra® fiber. The contest runs until August 15, 2011, and is open to all creative minds. The most creative design will be turned into a limited edition bikini and will be part of Billabong's summer 2012 collection.

A professional jury will review the Top 5, that were previosly selected by users voting via Billabong Girl’s European facebook page, and will choose the final winning design. The winner will get invited to meet the Billabong team of designers in Hossegor, France, and will receive a complete Billabong summer wardrobe as well as one free surfing

Billabong has already collaborated with Invista, owner of the Xtra Life Lycra® fibre, for a series of bikinis for the summer 2011 swimwear range. This line includes four different tops and bottoms in six different colors that can be mixed and matched to find whatever suits and fits best. The collaboration also includes a signature bikini designed for professional big wave team rider and 4-time Billabong XXL Big Wave Award winner, Maya Gabeira.

The Xtra Life Lycra® fibre is known to provide a long lasting fit and stands up to the harshest conditions at the beach and while surfing. It also provides an improved resistance to chlorine, sun lotions, and UV rays.
