Face of Summer

 

Swimwear Galore x Brazilian Butterfly Promotion

Introducing our Faces of Summer! 

This summer we teamed up with Brazilian Butterfly to find our Faces of Summer! We came together to celebrate how everyday Aussies spend their time in the warmest months of the year. To enter all you had to do was post a photo on Instagram of what summer looks like to you! After hundreds of amazing entries it came down to the final four - Chelsey Shireen Leah & Bree! As winners they got ready with Brazilian Butterfly had their hair and makeup professionally done and were styled by us for a photoshoot in front of the iconic bathing boxes at Brighton Beach Melbourne. PLUS they all won a $250 voucher from both of us to ensure they stayed photo ready long after the shoot! Check out the results of the shoot and meet our faces of summer below!

 

Chelsey

CHELSEY, VIC

What made you decide to enter and want to be our ‘Face of Summer’?

I have a big passion for health and fitness but Ive always been on the curvier side! I felt it was a good opportunity to show that people who have curves can be the face of a swimwear company!

How do you do summer?

My summers are spent surfing and paddle boarding down at the beach! I love being in the water and spending time with family outdoors, BBQ and swimming.

Leading up to the photoshoot how were you feeling?

So excited! I was so looking forward to meeting the other girls involved in the shoot and the whole process of trying on swimwear and being dolled up! Come the night before the shoot though, the nerves set in - i don’t know the first thing about modeling!

How did you feel during your visit at Brazilian Butterfly?

I had a great experience with Brazilian butterfly! The girls there were so friendly professional and made me feel very comfortable.

How did you enjoy the day?

The day was amazing! I got to work with so many beautiful people who went above and beyond to make the experience a memorable one!

What was your favourite swimsuit on the day and why?

My favourite swimsuit was the Sunseeker Mosaic Lace Up One Piece. Comfortable, amazing colours and loved the shape! I could have taken them ALL home though!

 

Shireen

SHIREEN, WA

What made you decide to enter and want to be our ‘Face of Summer’?

It seemed like it would be a lot of fun so I just thought I would give it a go I actually didn't think I would have any chance of winning!

How do you do summer?

I live for summer I love everything about it. It means family time sunsets sunshine & as much time in the ocean as possible. Coming from WA I have always lived a very outdoors lifestyle on the coast I’m not sure if I could survive if I lived away from the beach!

Leading up to the photoshoot how were you feeling?

I was very nervous but excited to be doing something way out of my comfort zone.

How did you feel during your visit at Brazilian Butterfly?

I was made to feel so welcome & felt very at ease during my appointment the staff were very professional they know their stuff.

How did you enjoy the day?

The day was an amazing experience from start to finish! It was great to share the experience with 3 other ladies who just hit it off from the get go. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to be a part of an experience promoting such a positive message for women regarding body image & the fact that regardless of age background & different body types we are all perfect just how we are.

What was your favourite swimsuit on the day and why?

Tigerlily Mitla One Piece it fit like a glove and the fabric and design were gorgeous.

 

Leah

LEAH, VIC

What made you decide to enter and want to be our ‘Face of Summer’?

Because who doesn't love all things summer!? And Brazilian Butterfly and Swimwear Galore are two amazing brands!

How do you do summer?

This summer has been the first where my 2 kids are at great ages to spend the day on the beach as a family! They have loved playing in the water and digging (and eating) sand! 

Leading up to the photoshoot how were you feeling?

Excited, nervous, very fortunate and confident after working hard the last few months to live a healthy and happy lifestyle.

How did you feel during your visit at Brazilian Butterfly?

I loved my visit to Brazilian Butterfly. The girls were lovely and approachable and the services were amazing. My tan and brows have never looked better!

How did you enjoy the day?

The day was so much fun! All of the people on the day were lovely and we all had such a great time. I loved being pampered with hair and makeup and the huge variety of swimwear to choose from! The other girls were friendly and beautiful each in their own way and everyone seemed to be really confident and happy! 

What was your favourite swimsuit on the day and why?

I ended up loving everything I tried on! But my favourite was the Seafolly Ocean Rose DD Cup Bustier & Skirted Hipster. I loved the fit of the bra top and the frill skirt on the bottoms is so cute and playful! 

 

Bree

 

BREE, VIC

What made you decide to enter and want to be our ‘Face of Summer’?

I entered on a whim when I saw the post on Swimwear Galore's Instagram. I didn't expect to win I just thought it would be a fun experience - who wouldn't want to be pampered and try on beautiful swimwear all day! Plus the vouchers really sealed the deal!

How do you do summer?

Summer for me means spending a lot of time at the athletics track training and competing. When I get chance I love getting away to the beach down in Anglesea or taking a quick break to relax by the pool with mum!

Leading up to the photoshoot how were you feeling?

When I first found out I was ecstatic but as the day got closer I started to get pretty nervous. Even though I work hard to stay fit and healthy I was nervous about everything being on show in front of a camera and strangers! But as soon as I arrived on the day the energy from the other ladies and the crew was just amazing! I felt completely at ease and really confident to be standing there with the other winners!

How did you feel during your visit at Brazilian Butterfly?

Pampered! The ladies at the Lower Templestowe store were lovely and as soon as I walked in the door there was a big "congratulations!". I was a little nervous about the spray tan being too dark but they advised me on a colour right for me and it was perfect the next day when I woke up for the photoshoot. Their energy and excitement was infectious and really got me feeling positive and ready for the photoshoot the next day! 

How did you enjoy the day?

The day of the photoshoot was amazing. Maybe it was pure luck, but all four of us just got along so well and the crew were super friendly and supportive too! Getting ready in the morning was exciting as we couldn't see our hair and makeup until it was finished. I loved what the make-up and hairstylists did and once we had our first outfits on I just felt incredible. Unfortunately for us mother nature wasn't on our side but she couldn't wipe the smiles off our faces! Favourite moment had to be trying to hold on to the inflatable props in those crazy winds! It just added to the fun and positive atmosphere of the day!  

What was your favourite swimsuit on the day and why?

My favourite was the new Seafolly Vintage Wildflower DD Bralette & Frill Hipster. As soon as I saw the beautiful print I was hoping that it would fit, thankfully it did! The fit of the top was perfect for me, not just flattering but also really practical. When I go to the beach I enjoy mucking around in the water and I would have felt comfortable diving into the waves in this swimsuit!
