Penny Lane, a 2023 Swim Search finalist, stunned on the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Runway Show at Miami Swim Week on Friday, July 7, wearing Gigi C and Nessy Swimwear.

Lane is an English model and certified holistic health coach. She didn’t let her experience being told to lose weight and consider a breast reduction turn her away from the modeling industry and has instead built a platform around encouraging women to be confident while accepting themselves. The 27-year-old loves a good adventure and has lived in 64 cities over the past nine years.

She is one of seven finalists in this year’s Swimsuit open casting call. Lane, who moved to Australia at the age of 17, hopes to continue encouraging conversations about mental health and unrealistic beauty and body standards.
