This Unretouched Swimsuit Campaign Is Off The Chain

“Curvy women really shouldn’t apologize for who they are.”

SwimsuitsForAll released its new "Beach Body. Not Sorry." campaign earlier this week, which features stunning model Denise Bidot serving up sexiness completely unretouched.

Campaign video and stills feature some serious seaside slaying on the part of Bidot, who proudly works the stretch marks and cellulite she says she used to consider imperfections, but now calls “everything that makes me, me.”

“Curvy women really shouldn’t apologize for who they are,” she says in the clip. “It’s all about the confidence.”

“Curvy women really shouldn’t apologize for who they are,” she says in the clip. “It’s all about the confidence.”

“Beach Body. Not Sorry.” is just the latest in a string of body-positive initiatives for SwimsuitsForAll. The brand’s also collaborated with blogger GabiFresh on a plus-size capsule collection…

…and its Sports Illustrated–featured #CurvesInBikinis ad with Ashley Graham helped launch the subsequent Instagram campaign to encourage beachside body diversity.

“I agreed to be part of this campaign because it’s about sharing your story with others and opening up the conversation about beauty,” Bidot told BuzzFeed Life of her Beach Body. Not Sorry. shots.

“For so long people have believed that beauty was something you could put in a box, but we are finally breaking away from that.”

“For so long people have believed that beauty was something you could put in a box, but we are finally breaking away from that.”

Bidot told BuzzFeed Life she’s excited to see beauty standards evolving not only in terms of size, but also in age and ethnicity.

“It’s all about acceptance and knowing that we are not all meant to look the same and that we were made exactly as we should be,” she said.

“It’s all about acceptance and knowing that we are not all meant to look the same and that we were made exactly as we should be,” she said.

“I would love this video to show that there is no wrong way to be a woman. I love the message of confidence it sends by releasing the images unretouched.“

“We believe that life’s best moments happen in a swimsuit,” Moshe Laniado, CEO and president of SwimsuitsForAll, told BuzzFeed Life. “We want women to let go of their anxieties and step out unapologetically this summer.”

“Beach Body. Not Sorry. is an authentic depiction of female beauty and our contribution to summer body confidence.”
