How to be an Inclusive Swimwear Model (& Why You Should Model for Kitty and Vibe)

At Kitty and Vibe, we recognize & empathize with the hesitations and avoidance many women have towards swimsuit shopping. It's the most vulnerable item of clothing we wear in public! To make swimsuit shopping something to actually look forward to, we’ve cultivated a community of encouraging, positive women to celebrate all different body types and appearances. We’re proud that we have real fans of the brand model for all our launches. There’s no modeling experience necessary, and we actually prefer none! 

If you’ve ever thought about modeling or being a part of an inclusive brand in some way, we think you should apply to model for Kitty! It may seem intimidating to model in front of a camera, but these model testimonials may change your mind!

Meet Ree ⚡️

Ree was a model for the Violet Wave campaign, one of the more editorial and nostalgia-inspiring photoshoots that we’ve done. She rocks the Bandeau Top and High Waisted Bottoms. Here’s what Ree shared about her time modeling with us:

"My experience was overall really great. Both the photographer and [the Kitty and Vibe team] made everyone feel very secure and relaxed in an uplifting and fun setting."

Meet Brittany H. ✨

Brittany H. modeled for our Marble Collection and loves the String Top and String Bottoms in Jade. Hear about her experience modeling for us and making younger Brittany super proud:

Being a swimsuit model for Kitty and Vibe is empowering! I feel like this shoot and the product of the photos will be something that 12 year old me is proud of. The positivity and inclusivity with all the models made the shoot so comfortable.”

Meet Tonya 🌸

Tonya modeled in several Kitty campaigns and has become a true friend of ours. In her Ruffle Scoop Top and Ruffle Bottoms in Poppy, you can feel her joy through the screen in photos from our very first shoot with her (peep the BTS shot!)

Being a model for Kitty and Vibe was just as I had hoped! Everyone there made me feel welcomed and was the best damn group of hype girls! The suits were buttery soft and looked so cute on every body type! I would do it all over again, was the confidence boost I needed.”

Meet Emely 💚

Another friend of the brand, Emely, has made her way as a regular model in our photoshoots. In our Snake Collection photoshoot, Emely wears the all-new Adjustable Underwire Top and High Hip Bottoms. Here’s what she had to say about her time modeling with us:

“The entire Kitty and Vibe team made me feel so comfortable, welcomed and empowered. It felt more like a group of friends hanging out which was amazing since I was so nervous leading up to the shoot. It was an incredible and easy experience”

Meet Amber 🍋

The stunning Amber wears the Plunge Top and High Hip Bottoms in the Florence vibe. Amber was unsure of how she would feel modeling, but she looks like a pro to us! She shared this glowing review with us on the shoot she was in:

“I was nervous to model. I don’t feel perfectly confident in my body and I’m not a professional model. I didn’t know what the other girls would be like or if I’d feel out of place. The experience blew me away. Everyone was different and wonderful and supportive and encouraging. We had an amazing time I felt so honored to be a part of this group. The Kitty + Vibe ladies were amazing and I would do this again a million times.”

Meet Brittany G. 🌺

Brittany G. knew she wanted to be a Kitty model! She was a part of the Snake Collection and wears the Banded Triangle Top and Banded Crossover Bottoms in Talia. Here’s what she had to say about modeling for us:

“I loved my experience! One, the space we were in was magical. Definitely a vibe! Music was on point, the people were so genuine, and I felt very safe the whole time…Everything ran smoothly and was very professional.”
