Body-positivity

One of the most diverse cities in the United States, Miami features the best of the best in their Swim Week 2021. The fashion industry in Miami leads the entire country when it comes to embracing and appreciating body positivity, different body styles, and fashion for all. The models taking center stage at the Miami Swim Week 2021 are part of a large diverse and ethnic group from different brands. The trend here is the representation of all kinds of body styles, which has been the central theme for these swim week events since 2019. 2020 did not see a full-fledged swim week, giving all of the brands almost two years to hit back with the oomph.

Rewinding the 2019 event 

 

2019 Miami Swim Week saw the trend of the “underboob.” The challenging bikini-style made its debut right here, with bikinis and one-piece tops cut away right below the nipples. This revealed the underside of the breasts, which was then named “the underboob.” Models part of the show strode down the runway with their fierce and playful looks, giving the world the tease of a lifetime.

 

However, 2019 was not restricted to just more skin showing; the diversity of the 2019 event was the show-stopper in the entire event. For the first time, the models walking down the ramp belonged to various body shapes and styles, along with the “traditional” model counterparts. Rounded bellies, wide hips, and other body features were a welcome addition to slender legs and models of varying heights. The trend continued for two years, with more and more body shapes and styles showing up in different advertisements and fashion considerations. 

 

2019 also saw Sports Illustrated giving the nod to the feminist, body-positive look, celebrating womanhood in a swimwear show. 

Conclusion 

 

2019 was the year where boundaries were pushed! It was a power-packed year with diversity and body positivity being at the forefront. Will 2021 take this at yet another level? The Miami Swim Week 2021 is all set to kick off this week. Do not forget to join in on all the fun.
