This Friday is the launch of SWIM+, my annual swimsuit summer inspired lookbook for curvy women over a size 14 and it’s absolutely FREE! The swim and resort wear is photographed on gorgeous Australian models sized 16-20 styled and shot by me. I wanted to show consumers how garments looked on women who needed a little more physical and emotional support from their summer attire.
From shyly showing the internet my body in a cheap ebay halter suit in my backyard, to posing on a yacht with my sister, to photographing Samantha for a week on Hayman Island (she’s signed to BGM models now YAY!) and this year shooting two models… it’s just been epic and none of it could have happened without your likes, your clicks, your comments and support from a brand that’s always been by my side, TS14+.
I’m already getting choked up and it hasn’t even been released yet. I just know the power of influence this lookbook will have on so many women, of all shapes and sizes. How do I know this? Well it’s happened already, the emails still keep pouring in after last years effort. Apparently I’ve saved many a bride-to-be planning her honeymoon getaway and many women not only from Australia but across the world have shared their emotional swimsuit stories with me, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been lost for words. For me I just put on a suit but for so many women it’s so much more than that.
This isn’t a catalogue and you wont find inspirational quotes, articles on how to dress for your body type or any of that either. I wanted SWIM+ to be different, to inspire, to add a little glamour, to set the scene and urge you to jump in… the waters nice, you’ll like it!
