Whoever follows supermodel, businesswoman and soon-to-be mom Bar Refaeli on her main social media accounts, knows for sure that the Israeli beauty has been lately under fire for not having a blossoming and visible baby bump since the very first months of her pregnancy. And now, while being in her fifth month (she is due this summer with a baby girl), Refaeli not only took the time to show off her beautiful baby bump while relaxing at the beach, but also made an important announcement that is inspirational indeed: a new swimwear line.
Captioning the photo on Instagram with “Coming soon… a baby. My swimwear collection BAR for @hoodiesil,” Refaeli revealed her plans for a new eponymous swimwear line made in collaboration with the Israeli activewear brand Hoodies, for which she currently works as the label’s brand ambassador. Such a motivational announcement is, in fact, a breath of fresh air not only for her fans, but also for all those soon-to-be moms who would like to be good parents while, simultaneously, keeping up with their work and careers.
The 30-year-old model, who is a former Victoria’s Secret Angel and became hugely famous for covering the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue in 2009, is thus following in the footsteps of all those models and celebrities, who ventured into the swimwear industry, overwhelming the world with an incredible urge to just lie on the beach and soak up the sun while wearing a stylish bikini set. Among them, Alessandra Ambrosio, Sofia Vergara, Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson are those who most recently and most successfully decided to add ‘swimwear designer’ to their resumes.
Refaeli, who is expecting her first child with her husband Adi Ezra, has however technically just announced the collaboration, without further disclosing anything about the collection’s style and attitude. The thong bikini she is wearing in the aforementioned Instagram picture has nothing to do with her Bar Refaeli x Hoodies swimwear collection, as the black two-piece bikini with the catchy colorful hip straps she is sporting is from L*Space by Monica Wise. Both the thong bikini and Monica Wise’s designs are the current hottest trend in the swimwear industry, so we shouldn’t be surprised about Refaeli’s choice to show off her stunning figure in one of Wise’s best creations.
Although the model still has to further make comments regarding the upcoming collaboration, given the fact that she surely isn’t camera shy and always likes to share her improvements, plans and good news via her Instagram, we should probably just stay tuned and wait for the details to be fully disclosed!
