    I think if you wanted to do the name though... why not print it on the iron on transfer paper that you can print off your home computer then add the rhinestones... that way if you have handwriting like me it would be straight and legible!

        Thank you for this thread. I love those bathing suits, but I am not the same size on top & bottom, so I've been scouring the internet looking for alternatives.

          What you need is Hotfix rhinestones. They are flatbacked and have a special glue on the back that affixes to fabric when heated up. If you have a soldering iron that has changeable heads you are all set...if not, you can get one of the irons at Michaels or Joanns crafts. I've actually seen the stones and irons in the bridal section.

          One important thing to think about!! Rhinestones hate water!!!! This would be a lounging on the beach swimsuit.

            i think i'm going to do an iron on transfer and spruce it up with some rhinestones. that way the letters will look good and straight.

                    You can get an iron on diamonte transfer sticker from Dazzling and apply it easyly on to your bikini by a household iron.

                    I am going to use the Hotfix crystals for decorating my MOH and BM tank tops. I'll use them for invites, STDs, favors, etc. The crystals can be more expensive depending on what brand you are using. The top "3" are Swarovski, Preciosa, and Economy. You can buy the less expensive applicators for like $10 or the more expensive ones with a lot of changing heads for $25+. I think the iron on transfers will be your most cost effective solution unless you want to stick crystals on other things too :)
