Verily's June/July issue features a 10 page one-piece swimwear spread – and before you dread viewing overly tan women lounging around in uncomfortable positions and even more uncomfortable suits - hold that thought! You won't catch those tired images in Verily. We thought you might appreciate something different, something real, and had a blast shattering those old bikini-bodied stereotypes.
Think fun, relaxed, and beautiful; the way every woman wants to feel when she slips on a suit and hits the nearest body of water. Kassidy and Melissa, two plus-sized models (yes, plus!) from Natural Model Management in LA, embodied that very feeling for a care-free day at Venice Beach. Working with the likes of Suzi Grgurich, Trever Hoehne, Amy Clarke and Heidi Marie Garrett - it took an incredibly talented dream team to make this unconventional shoot even possible.
Intentionally unconventional. We purposefully wanted to have healthy women in truly flattering swimwear that didn't distract from who they are as women.
We can’t wait for you to see what lies inside the new Verily swimsuit spread – be sure to let us know what you think when you’re pool-side this summer keeping cool, care-free, and beautiful!
We have to say, J.Crew really impressed us this year with their line of one-piece swimwear, as the majority of suits we featured in the spread are them! The vintage floral pattern up top is classic, and bright red and neon yellow number is on sale - score!
