I just had to write an article about swimsuit and curvy women and this happened just after I saw the brand new campaign of Ashley Graham for Swimsuit for all. Just two more weeks and I guess all of us will try to find the perfect bikini for summer, which is, obviously, a real adventure. First of all the lights, mirrors and heat in the shops are terrible and when you look at yourself you see cellulite everywhere, with an increasing desire to run away, perhaps on another planet. But at the end of the day I thing that women are all beautiful, stunning and unique in their way, what we really must have is confidence and a good feeling about our body. I guess Ashley has both.
The new collection takes inspiration from the 1990’s with neon hues as well as high-waist cuts. Lensed by Ben Watts, Ashley poses on location in Southern California. The brunette beauty tries on roller skates and a high ponytail for the sun-drenched shots. Head phones, visors and sunglasses perfectly accessorize the ensembles. Supermodels were the pioneers for many ’90s fads and and supermodel Ashley Graham is bringing her nostalgic style to the forefront of this collection. “My mom and I used to rollerblade for miles behind the house that I grew up in,” Graham said in a Swimsuits For All press release. “It was definitely my happy place, which inspired me to design these ‘90s retro suits and shoot this campaign. I’m excited to see proud women of all shapes and sizes hit the boardwalk in these styles.” They’re probably just as excited to wear them, too, girl.
Graham and Swimsuits For All bring fans of all sizes this neoprene top and nylon bikini bottom. The bottoms on this suit have a high-cut leg and also come with adjustable bra straps. Because our skin and body shape naturally changes as we age, we sometimes need to devote a bit of extra time to boosting our body image to ensure this matches our mindset. In our image-driven society it can be hard not to compare yourself unfavourably to the “ideals” that surround us. As we get older, we are often still subjected to unrealistic images of what older women should look. Rather than looking at your body purely in terms of appearance, consider what it can do – your talents, strengths and the tough times it’s got you through. For example stretch marks that were gained in pregnancy should be seen as a proud reminder of having had your children.
With some simple style tweaks, you can give your confidence an instant boost. We should all be like Ashley, even if overweighted, with wrinkles, too thin, too hight, too petite. We are all beautiful.
