Swimsuits For All once again released an iconic campaign. The beloved swimwear brand is one of those labels that are re-defining the whole industry. They’ve proven on many occasions that ladies of all sizes look amazing in swimsuits. Thanks to their body-positive campaigns, a lot of women feel more comfortable showing off their bodies. For their latest ads Swimsuits For All tapped supermodels Ashley Graham, Brooke Shields, reality star Angela Simmons, nurse Katie Duke and swimmer Pat Gallant-Charette.
With the new shots, the brand is setting new standards of inclusivity. All of the main protagonists are different from what you’re used to seeing in swimwear ads. The ladies look so amazing, that we’ll all definitely want to see more campaigns such as this one. The project carries the name Power Suit as a reference to the ensembles hard-working women wear all the time. Swimsuits For All reworked the concept and dressed their models in chic bikinis and one-piece styles that are meant to be their new power suits. Instead of being shy, they proudly show off what they have.
“Growing up under such scrutiny led me to feel insecure about my looks. Feeling disconnected from my own body, it took me years to separate the opinions of others from my own. Over time, I was able to find confidence in myself through my work, my passions, my network of strong female role models and my journey through motherhood. At 52 years old, I finally feel comfortable and proud of the all the hard work I’ve put into my body. I can say that I feel confident being in my own skin, showing my body and not hiding it.’- Shields told PEOPLE.
Brooke Shields is an icon in the modeling world. She started working when she was only 12 years old, and now at 52 she still looks as gorgeous as ever. In the shots, Shields flaunts her toned long legs and steel abs. She is the perfect example that a brand doesn’t always need to feature young trending models in their campaigns. Ashley Graham is the most popular plus-size model in the world, who was also ranked as one of the top-earning names on the Forbes list. Angela Simmons is a 30-year-old mom who looks stunning in a two-piece. Pat might be 67 but that won’t get in the way of flaunting a gorgeous swimsuit.
The Power Suit campaign will hopefully make ladies even more confident and inspire them to feel good in their skin. Size, age, and shape are not something you should be insecure about. You can now shop your favorite power suits on swimsuitsforall.com.

The body-positive babe Ashley Graham just proved that she got it from her mama! The model invited her 53-year old mother, Linda Graham, to star along with her in the newest campaign for Swimsuits for All. Although Linda is a newbie in front of the camera, you would never guess that this is her debut modeling experience.
Ashley started her collaboration with the inclusive swimwear brand back in 2015. Since then Graham has designed swimming suits in an impressive size range for women of all shapes and sizes. Ashley’s swimsuits were a game-changer especially for curvy ladies who have had very limited choices predominantly conservative and in dark colors. But Graham challenged the society’s beauty standards with her collections and campaigns and encouraged curvy ladies to show off their curves with pride.
The new campaign for Swimsuits for All was shoot on various locations in exotic Morocco by photographer Ben Watts. Ashley and Linda had a bonding mother-daughter time during the shoot. The model made her mom comfortable in front of the camera with her pro tips. Linda claimed that the tables have turned because she used to be the one who encouraged Ashley to accept and love her body throughout the years. Linda Graham donned a string bikini for the first time in her life in the campaign for Swimsuits for All. Just months ago she has flaunted a bikini for the first time in 30 years. Until then Ashley’s mother has only worn one-piece swimsuits. But her model daughter encouraged her mama to show off. Now both ladies are on a mission to show to all women that bikinis love to hang out with all ages, shapes, and sizes. They are even wearing coordinating suits which show that age is just a number that shouldn’t play a role when you are choosing a swimsuit.
The 30-year old model offered another fun collection full of hot swimwear. There are one-pieces with cutouts, and lace-up details, as well as various bikini designs in different colors. When Ashley does something, inclusivity is guaranteed. She made sure to include multiple bikini and monokini styles, so every lady could find her perfect swimsuit. Besides bringing her mother on set, Ashley modeled a lot of the offerings by herself.
At this time of the year, we are still covered in multiple layers and barely think about swimsuits. But in case you are planning a winter vacation on an exotic location or just want to stock up on hot beachwear for the upcoming warm months, keep in mind that Ashley Graham’s designs are already available to purchase.

The fabulous Ashley Graham is not just a plus-size model. The 29-year-old beauty is also a body activist, a designer, and a successful business woman. She is a role model who has been setting new limits in the fashion industry for several years now. She started as the first plus-size model who landed a cover of the Sports Illustrated Magazine. She continued by conquering many runways, shows, and red carpets.
Graham got the leading role in Joe Jonas’s hit song “Toothbrush’ last year, which was a great encouragement for many shy and curvy women. So far, she has designed dresses, lingerie, has collaborated with Sephora and much more.
Ashley is known for her activism against body shaming and her constant work to empower women from all around the world. She has been a true example that anyone can be who they want to be if they set their mind to it.
The swimsuits brand “Swimsuits For All” announced their collaboration with Graham in 2015. In 2016 they presented their debut collection, which was the first plus-size collection for the brand. It was a line inspired by James Bond, and it sold out in minutes. The second capsule was released earlier this year and it has a very tropical, vibrant, Puerto Rican style.
All of the swimsuit pieces are super modern, trendy and hot. They are available from sizes 6 to 22, which is a completely new step in the swimwear for plus-sized women. Ashley’s goal was to present stylish swimwear that would fit women of all sizes and shapes. And these are not the regular high-wasted or one-piece swimsuits that you see everywhere. The bathing suits come in a variety of modern cuts, that any woman would love to own.
The two beautiful capsule collections brought a lot of positive attention both for Ashley and for Swimsuits For All. There are women praising Graham, and her struggle to prove that everyone should feel comfortable in their skin, regardless the size, height, race or color. With her collaboration with the swimwear brand Swimsuits For All, she started encouraging women, to get out of their comfort zone and show their beauty to the world.
The latest trend on Instagram are the pictures with the hashtag #ashleygrahamxswimsuitsforall. These pictures are shared by many beautiful women from all around the globe, who flaunt their curves in Ashley’s swimsuits. And, guess what, each one of them looks extremely hot. All of the swimsuits are gorgeous and so are the ladies who wear them. Over 1,300 women have already shared their amazing summer beach looks with the Ashley X Swimsuits For All bathing suits. They are officially a part of a whole new revolution that fights for diversity. Ashley celebrated this by posting a collage picture on her Instagram saying “Love seeing you beauties in my swimsuits! #ashleygrahamxswimsuitsforall’.
Monokini swimsuits are having a huge comeback in the Summer of 2017. Online searches for one-piece swimsuits significantly increased this season. One of the reasons why more girls have an increased interest for one-piece swimsuits is Instagram. Lately, many trendsetters and Instagirls show up in sultry one-piece swimsuits. Celebrities such as Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Emily Ratajkowski and Gigi Hadid are constantly rocking hot one-piece swimsuits.
Considering the fact that Instagram is the place where trends are set we truly believe that you are going to notice much more one-piece swimsuits at the beach than ever before.
When it comes to styles, monokini swimsuits have a lot to offer. From deep V-neck swimsuits to lace ups, there is a style for everyone’s taste.
Take a look at the hottest one-piece swimsuits that are trending this season.
1. High-Leg One-Piece Swimsuits
High-leg swimsuits flatter everyone’s body shape. The high cut will make your legs appear longer and slimmer. If you are a fan of Baywatch you probably remember Pamela Anderson’s signature high-leg red swimsuit. Well, the good news is that this style is making a huge comeback. Even girls with slimmer physiques could benefit from the high-leg swimsuits because this style creates an illusion of a bigger booty.
2. Slogan One-Piece Swimsuits
Slogan swimsuits became a thing not so long ago and they are still trending big time. They are fun, sexy and eye-catching. Literally, everyone is going to lay their eyes on your body after they read the slogan. If you are on the bold side then this is definitely your must-have swimsuit for the summer of 2017. There is a huge variety of slogans to choose from. This style is definitely meant for all the gals with a free spirit who want to rule on the sand.
3. Sexy Cut Out One-Piece Swimsuits
If you prefer self-tanning then you are free to rock exotic one-piece swimsuits with one or more cut-outs. These styles are opened on strategic parts and there are multiple options to choose from. If you want to upgrade your beach style then this swimsuit is the perfect way to do it. Cut out swimsuits are showing more skin than regular ones and they are definitely made for girls who are not afraid to express their sensual side.
4. Lace-up One-Piece Swimsuits
Speaking of sensuality we can’t skip the hot lace-up swimsuits. The lace-up swimsuits are a follow up to the lace-up dresses and bodysuits that were popular in the last couple of years. These styles feature multiple lace-ups on different parts of the swimsuit. Usually, there are placed on the plunging neckline, the back, or on both sides. You can bring an insanely high dose of sexiness to your beach style with these swimsuits.
5. One Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuits
Asymmetric cuts were very popular on the runway lately and the trend transferred to swimwear as well. One shoulder swimsuits are a perfect choice for all the girls who want to follow what high fashion dictates. You could easily be the center of attention at the beach or by the pool with this unique style of swimsuit.
6. Deep V-Neck One-Piece Swimsuits
This would be hands down the sexiest style on our list. If you are a fan of the deep V-neck bodysuits that are literally all over Instagram, then you would love to rock their beach equivalents. The Deep V-neck is equally hot for both a night out and a day under the sun. The plunging neckline is an opportunity to unleash your sultry side and turn heads everywhere you appear. This style is only for the most daring ones because you have to be comfortable with showing more skin.
7. Metallic One-Piece Swimsuits
A sexy bronze tan looks even more radiant when paired with a dazzling metallic one-piece swimsuit. The metallic fabric creates an interesting shade-shifting effect that makes you the center of attention even in the biggest crowd. In the sea of floral and tropical prints, the metallic swimsuit breaks the monotony and makes an unbeatable fashion statement.
The Zara Home summer 2017 swimsuit collection is colorful and incredible with prints and patterns from florals to paisleys. The Spanish brand carefully chose the location, styles and model in order to create the ideal relaxed and bohemian beachy aesthetic without being too far away from gorgeous beachwear. Karmen Pedaru is chosen as the face for the campaign, and each photo shows her modelling each look from fabulous angles with the incredible poolside background.
There don’t seem to be any one-piece swimsuits, but that is hardly a surprise. Bikinis are the publicly allowable option that is one step away from lingerie, and Zara’s lingerie line was amazingly shown just recently. By not having to switch gears 100% they came up with a very sexy line of beachwear and swimsuits that are amazing to see and wear.
The poolside background showed off much more than the assorted cuts and styles of bikinis with the different patterns and color choices, but also allowed for the coverups in various relaxed styles to be shown. The number of options is the same number of patterns, an exciting concept that translates to a wide range of options and a decreased likelihood that you will be unintentionally caught in the same bikini at your next poolside or beachy outing.
So many different cuts mean flattering bikini options for a wider range of shoppers and the styles overall are elegant. Even though I compared the Zara Home summer 2017 swimsuits to the previous lingerie line, it was not to give off the impression that the new campaign is too risqué ” quite the opposite! The entire collection is summer time and beach apropos. The coverups are vibrant and beautifully cut. The designs of not just the bathing suits but also the coverups are flattering.
The sophisticated style and chic options, like the cr‚Äö√†√∂¬¨√Üme colored flowing wide-leg pants and black and white giraffe print bikini top set are amazing. Even more so than the designs are not just attractive, but also clever. Using the wide legged pants as an example again, there are pockets on the pants and the waistband looks sturdy enough for you to actually USE the pockets. Everyone knows women’s fashion is desperately short on utility options like adequate pockets. To have this incorporated on a beachwear coverup is amazing!
The multipiece sets that look like leisure wear feature very detailed patterns and trendy cuts. The collection is very immersive ” it is very easy to lose yourself in the styles offered, and Karmen Pedaru looks so comfortable in everything that it is easy to want to try it on. Accessories were limited to hats and slides, but it is okay, because the clothes are the features for this campaign, and they were showcased beautifully.
