The Style Gallery is a great new way for you to view, love, and share outfit photos. It’s meant to showcase all the expressive, creative, and inspirational personalities of our community!
Remember this photo?
Back in February, we launched a body-confident style story featuring real ModCloth employees flaunting some of our favorite swimsuits. The empowering images went viral — big-time outlets from Bustle to Huffington Post spread the word about our campaign, and our continuing quest to help all women feel confident in their beautiful, unique bodies.
About a month later, the blog team received an unexpected pitch from AJ, a Shipping Associate and Facilities guru here at ModCloth. He and some of the other ModMen were inspired and impressed by our employee models and wanted to show their solidarity with our body-positive cause. How? With a swimsuit shoot of their own, of course!
ModCloth’s first-ever men’s swim shoot, inspired by Shipping Associate, AJ (that’s him with the backward hat & super-cool chest tattoo).
As you can probably guess, a men’s photo shoot is new territory for a women’s retailer like us. But if we ever get into the guys’ swimwear game, these big-hearted boys will be at the top of our list for models. Not only were they a blast to watch in front of the camera (if you can’t tell, these guys are total hams), but they also share our perspective that everyone, regardless of gender, deserves to feel fantastic when they hit the waves. Check out the pics, see quotes straight from the guys, then leave a comment with your take on feeling confident in the pool and beyond!
