Fashion has evolved tremendously through the years. From plus-sized models taking over the runways to model diversity seen across magazine pages these last few years, body positivity is something we have all learned to embrace. And if there’s one label that’s been celebrating the beauty of body diversity, it’s Filipino retail brand Nothing But H2O. For over 20 years, their commitment to providing countless swimwear options—from classic cuts to modern styles for the athletic to the beautifully busty—has remained unchanged. But over the years, a woman’s perception of the “beach body” has limited them from feeling confident in their own skin. So to help women find their perfect swimwear, we—along with Nothing But H2O— tapped 5 women from different backgrounds, sizes, and ages to inspire others to feel empowered to go out, embrace their body, and just enjoy summer—no body type labels, no swimwear rules.
Below, Lexi Gancayco (spinning instructor), Lexi Mendiola (model), Kat Gumabao (makeup artist), Maureen Schrijvers (athlete), and Georgia Schulze Del Rosario (mom of four) redefine the meaning of sexy by being confident with what they have. The best part? These 5 women are completely unretouched—scars, stretch marks, lopsided breasts and all.
