YANA

Who are you and how are you?

My name is Yana, and I'm good.


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

I used to have multiple minor complexes due to my history of modelling, I kind of learned to appreciate and love these growing older and now they def all melted like snow in the sun when I got pregnant, it really doesn't matter that much.


How do you feel when in your swimming suit?

Free, floaty, sexxy, makes me want to be somewhere caliente.


Why Ack?

Because these swimming suits are so pretty.

NAO

Who are you and how are you?

I’m Naomi, but everyone calls me Nao and I’m an 18 years old from Paris. Right now I’m feeling really excited as the summer days are coming! 


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

Having big boobs, it’s always been hard for me to not be insecure and self conscious about it but now I’ve learned to embrace it, everyone’s different and that’s okay :)


How do you feel when in your swimming suit?

I feel confident and fearless.


Why Ack?

When I discovered Ack, I immediately fell in love with the rawness it was trying to show of women’s bodies, in contrast with vibrant colors and cool details, which I thought was original. When I wore the swimsuits, they enhanced my curves and i felt so comfy in them!!

ELIANAH BY DREW ESCRIVA

Who are you and how are you? 

E: My name is Elianah and I am a student at NYU and model. I'm feeling thankful to have spent much of summer at the beach and with friends and family but I miss my dog Elvis and cannot wait to be reunited. 

D: I'm Drew, a film photographer that's happily working in Los Angeles. 


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

E: My lips. As a child I was made fun of for my features, my lips being one of them, but now they are my favorite. 

D: I'm on the shorter side, at 5' 1" I'm always surrounded by people taller than me, who often underestimate me. But I appreciate this now because I have (and am still!) learning to take up space with my voice. 


How do you feel when in your swimming suit? 

E: Ready for the sun to give me a hug and happy that being in it entails spending time in nature. I also feel sexy. 

D: In the right swimming suit, I feel comfortable and beautiful, and forget it's even there. 


Why Ack?

E: I love how unique Ack is. I feel connected to designs that I can identify with and Ack cultivates that experience. I've never seen swimsuits like Ack before– they are their own pieces of art and that translates to how you feel wearing them. I feel like myself in Ack.

D: Ack's designs are timeless but playful, never boring in a photo. They accentuate the wearer and allow them to shine.

What is feature of your body that you didn’t like before and now you appreciate?

Wow, this is question is difficult to answer but I have to say my belly and hips were features of my body that I didn’t really accept. But, actually I begin to accept them.


How do you feel in your swimming suit?

I feel like a Victoria's Secret model (joke) hahaha. Seriously, I feel good, I’m not afraid to show my body…


Why ACK?

Because first I like their swimming suit and secondly, they break stereotypes. Indeed, their models are different, not only skinny but also with curves!!! That’s a very good thing.

LOUISE, GEORGIA, CHINE

Who are you and how are you? 

My name is Luna Martin, I am 20 years old. I love art in general but I am mostly interested in photography, it's a discipline that I practice a lot. The past few months, I started to paint, and I enjoy it a lot. I am feeling pretty good in general, but sometimes, when I overthink too much, I try to put my emotions in my art, it helps me focusing on what I am doing, and helps me to be more comfortable and confident with myself.


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

I'm still insecure about a lot of stuff, especially at this age where we're growing up. Personally I've never been insecure about my body, nothing truly bother me.


How do you feel when in your swimming suit?

I haven't got the chance to wear it already, but I'm really excited and I can't wait to wear it on the beach this summer! 


Why Ack? 

What I really like are the  colours and details on each swimsuits, but more than everything I love  the mood of the brand ; all the pictures posted on the ACK Instagram are pictures that inspires me for my pictures, that's why it means a lot to me.

ALEJANDRA CARDONACA

Who are you and how are you? 

Hey I am Alejandra! The girl with the dancing videos on instagram, I am also modelling  I feel good, thank you. How are you?


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

I used to feel very insecure of my strech marks, when i went to the beach i would wear shorts on top to cover them. Now, i have been learning to accept them as a beautiful part of my body and not something to be ashamed of. 


How do you feel when in your swimming suit?

I feel free...


Why Ack? 

I love the way ACK empowers women through their beautiful swimsuits on different kinds of beauties and bodies. We should all feel sexy and beautiful when wearing our bikinis!

I’m Courtney, I live in LA in constant sunshine internally and externally.  I’m really tired from Fashion month but coming home to LA makes me feel human again!


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

My thighs and hips. Really into the curviness now.

Alive.  I actually wore it as a body suit with some black trousers and a leather jacket, to a disco in London.


Why Ack?

Why not?!.. Really though, everything ACK does is really inspiring and seems to make everyone feel good about the way they look while wearing and ready all these interviews.

GRABIJA, NAKITHA, TAMO BY SAVANNAH BAKER

Who am I?

T:I am still deciding 

N: I’m a Cosmic being more formally know as Nikitha.

G: Gabija Mitchell  Aka “Auntie Gabija”


How am I?

T: I am super and getting better

N: How am I?! I am full of light.

G: I call myself a Creative Selecta as am from the Caribbean and work in the creative industry.At a transitional stage in my life and have moved to Jamaica for a few weeks to clear my head. The sunshine and being back in the Caribbean is doing wonders for my mood and work flow - feeling great!


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

T: My small slightly slanted eyes. I used to desire full eyes that I thought made better canvases for creative eyeshadow play, but now that I don't care for make-up I appreciate them more. Now my slanted eyes are more of a curiousity about any Asianic branches in my family tree.

N: Growing up I always thought my legs were too long and skinny. These skinny long legs proved to be an advance later on in life though. I got a lot of friends that most definitely can’t reach the coffee in the kitchen cabinet.

G: I’m 6ft + so growing up I was always single out as too tall and wouldn’t wear anything with a heel. Now I wear heels all the time! 


How do you feel when in your swimming suit?

T: Definitely a little body conscious because I have scars but way more than that playful and sometimes sexy

N: Like a woman. A delicate flower and sometimes like flaming fire.

G: Growing up on an island meant I wore a swimsuit more than I wore under wear. If I’m in the tropics it’s the first thing I put on everyday. It feels natural, my friend once described my dress style as cozy but not clothed - swimsuits play into that mentality very well!


Why Ack?

T: Ack brand comes in an array of fun vibrant colors something an island girl like myself can always appreciate, plus the swimmies are soft and easy on the skin/body , squeeze and pinch free.

N: Ack has got swim for all body types and I dig that.

G: Seen a few friends wearing them but wasn’t sure of the brand name until Savannah Baker and I collaborated for a shoot. I love the high waisted bikinis as the hold me in and keep my body sharply when feeling bloated! Perfect way to stay comfortable during that time of the month!

CAMI BY YULIA ZINSHTEIN

Who are you and how are you? 

Hi I'm Yulia Zinshtein and I'm doing pretty good this morning, listening to Drake drinking coffee.


What is a feature of your body that you didn’t like before and you now appreciate?

My boobs for sure, I felt they were too big! Even though that doesn't sound too bad they always felt in the way, girls with bigger breasts know the struggle. I've learned to love them and feel sexy.


How do you feel when in your swimming suit?

I'm feeling fun and happy, because it usually means I'm basking in the sun somewhere by the beach and swimming. 


Why Ack? 

Colorful, bold and flirty!
