Monochrome Swim

4 months ago by

Swim. For summer.

Don’t worry, we’re already anticipating your “Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking.” commentary.

But, ya know what? Sometimes, it’s the middle of a serious July heatwave and you just can’t bear to put anything on your body more involved than a bathing suit. And, you can’t bear to be anywhere else except adjacent to some sort of body of water–an ocean, a pool, hell, even a kiddie pool will do!

Well, that time is now. So, we don’t care how many times it’s been done before. You can never have enough quality swimsuits (they’re not easy to find!).

Here is our 2019 edit, modeled by our favorite new friend, Imani!

    Gorgeous. I always worried a red one piece would make me look like a life guard but wow!

  • She is beautiful !

  • Beautiful photography and model…and the swimsuits aren’t bad either. One piece swimsuits can look so elegant!

  • Très inspirant! On a envie d’être ce modèle, ou son amie!

    THANK YOU for putting a larger body in some swim editorial!

    I was just having a “damn I’m big” moment and this made me feel a little more like just putting on the damn suit and feeling good, no matter.

    And, to the previous comment: yes – a red swimsuit does make you look like a lifeguard…from Baywatch! And at this point that’s a pretty hot, ever so slightly knowingly cheesy reference. Hot and a little hilarious is a good combo!

  • Stunning model. She is mesmerizing to look at.

  • So beautiful lovely colours and shapes. I feel inspired to try something new

    What a beautiful woman. Everything about her is sublime. The bathing suits are pretty great too. They look simple and comfortable yet sophisticated.

  • This is such a breathtakingly beautiful photoshoot. Can you please share who the photographer is?
    Thanks so much,
    Krista

  • Wearing one piece swimsuits or a bikini ~ that is the question.. whether you are a woman of ‘ certain age ‘ or not – who cares..
    You own it. Yay!!

    All these colours look SOOOOOO good on Imani’s amazing skin tone! I could never pull of the pink one, it is so pretty!

    Beautiful, powerful woman. Inspiring photos. Wish every woman (myself included) with body image issues could see and be inspired by them.

    This photo shoot made me stand up and take notice! The glorious model (photographed by the wonderful Bogdana Ferguson), the swimsuits, the entire vibe was so esthetically pleasing.

  • Absolutely amazing photos! I love seeing a beautiful woman in those beautiful suits…so refreshing too as her body type is one I recognize from real life.. unlike many of the other women modeling swimsuits, Thank you Thank you

    Cette femme est absolument sublime et c’est un plaisir de montrer une silhouette différente|

  • Gorgeous model!
    Lovely photoshoot, always been a little self conscious about swimsuits, always picking the same shapes and color, this gave me a little courage to try something new !

  • Gorgeous woman…what a welcome change from the usual thin models! She looks wonderful.

  • Your post is really right and great, a valuable topic

  • congratulations! it’s a wonderful thing! I agree with your opinion!

  • What a gorgeous model and beautiful photos, the quality of the light and the cloudy sky bring something special. I usually can’t stand shopping for swimwear but this has given me new inspiration. Love the green two-piece!

  • She is a beauty! Thank you for showing beauty comes in many sizes? Swimwear is also popping.

    Avec un peu de retard – la saison des maillots de bain est terminée et bien terminée : cette fille est sublime et ça fait VRAIMENT du bien de voir une fille aux proportions nettement plus généreuses que celles d’autres femmes représentées sur ce site. En dehors de ça, elle est absolument sublime.

  • I read some articles on this site and I think your blog is really interesting and has great information. Thanks for sharing.
