SI Swim Search is Back for 2021

Attention all aspiring SI Swimsuit models: It’s time to show us what you’ve got.

For months our comments sections have been flooded with one common question: “When is the next SI Swim Search!?” Well, it's almost here!

To jumpstart Swim Search, SI Swimsuit has teamed up with Vita Coco to create the Feel Good Campaign! We are encouraging SI Swim Search hopefuls to submit a photo of themselves doing what makes them feel good! Whether you feel best in a bikini, in sweats on the couch or out there taking a stance for something you believe in, we want to see it.

For every submission up to 10,000 entries, Vita Coco will donate $1 to Loveland Foundation. That’s $10,000 to be donated to an organization whose mission is to provide financial support to Black women and young girls in helping to defray the cost of mental health therapy.

Tune in for Feel Good Fridays on @SI_Swimsuit and @SI_SwimSearch for some big announcements! Every Friday, SI Swimsuit and Vita Coco will highlight select applicants to receive the SI Swimsuit x Vita Coco Feel Good Kit and additional experiences with SI Swimsuit models and editors including one-on-one digital meetings, tips and tricks and exclusive content.

Are you getting excited? Well, it gets BETTER! We’re excited to find the next group of Swimfluencers and create a digital community of inspired women. On August 3rd, SI Swim Search will officially launch and we will be introducing a special section on the SI Swimsuit website along with individual profile pages for every potential Swimfluencer. These profile pages will be for you, by you and will serve as a great way for the team at SI Swimsuit to get to know you better, communicate with you and ultimately create a community for women to share, support and root for one another.

We have always admired the friendships that come out of SI Swim Search. We’ve heard stories of women who met through this unique experience that have gone on to becoming roommates, maid of honors at each other's weddings and lifelong support systems. Think of this digital community as just that: a place to feel seen, heard and empowered.

Grab your tripods! On August 3rd it will be time for you to submit your 60-second video telling us why you should be a part of the SI Swim Search family. Be sure to follow @SI_Swimsuit for the latest updates on your submissions!
