I'm not a swimsuit model because I don't fit the "form" prescribed by brands. I choose my own style and the cut, textile and Japanese body-type is the only one I never have problems with. Same goes for leotards. I feel that women have a lot of choice, and we have a lot of variation in body types. Being an athlete, I'm not interested in flaunting curves or any bullshit that comes with "beauty standards". Instead I like to analyze form. I want activewear that promotes form. Form follows function, I don't care about body shape and gimmicky aesthetics. So when I choose to wear whatever I wear, it's because of the edge that it gives me in performance AND style. Style that I am proud of gives me confidence to perform. Brands don't make anything for my body type, so I often cobble together my own way of being.
