Meet the Model: Kristen Picone
"Having confidence with yourself is a great feeling. I feel in charge of my body and I let no negativity change that. My confidence is here to stay forever!"
Kristen is a curvy, blond bombshell who's making her presence known within the plus size fashion industry. She's an edgy yet classic beauty that embraces her curves and everything that makes her different. The New Jersey native is a talented model with an incredible work ethic, which is why she's a Thick Wave 2018 brand ambassador. When asked what is her favorite part about being a plus size model she states, "My favorite thing about being a plus model would have to be, being able to have the confidence with my body and being able to show it off so other woman can get that confidence too and learn to not care what others think and to embrace it."
In a society that way too often judge women on their physical appearance, feeling confident in swimwear can be a challenge. When asked how does she get ready to rock her bikini she stated, "I tell myself I am beautiful, I am strong and my body deserves to be in a swimsuit! Having confidence with yourself is a great feeling. I feel in charge of my body and I let no negativity change that. My confidence is here to stay forever!"
The beautiful model didn't always feel confident in a swimsuit. She says, "For many years when I was younger I use to hate shopping for swimsuits. I was so disgusted with my body in a bathing suit. Back in the day curves weren’t a thing and it was so frowned upon. It was all about being rail thin, but that’s not it anymore! Once I started loving myself and accepting my body for what it is, that's when I was confident in a bikini."
Whether she's on a beach or relaxing by her pool, this beauty is unapologetic about rocking her curves with confidence! Her favorite Thick Wave swimsuits are the Nikki and the Sara.
