Camille Kostek knows we’re just starting lazy, crazy, so-much-fun beach season. So she stretched out on some sand for the perfect swimsuit photo.

Good thing she’s a swimsuit designer and model. She’s perfection in this photo on Instagram. Kostek is showing off a white bikini. And she’s captioned it “mermaid tings.’

The bikini Camille Kostek is showing off is very wearable, even for nonmodels. It offers plenty of coverage with its near bandeau top and geometric bottoms. She loves to shout out “natural women,” owning the curves.

As one of her followers posted: “Beyond beautiful babe. Hello Summer.”

Camille Kostek started out as a a kid as a dancer and cheerleader. She was a cheerleader for the New England Patriots. And after she left the squad, she began dating Patriots star Rob Gronkowski. The two met on a community service project in 2015. They celebrated Gronk’s 32nd birthday last month. Gronkowski now plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs won the Super Bowl in February, so the whole spring season likely has been one giant party of Gronk.

Camille Kostek Translated Her Modeling to a Swimsuit Business

Camille Kostek also is a swimsuit model. Sports Illustrated selected her for the cover of its famous swimsuit edition in 2019. The year before, SI discovered her the year before. This year, she helped SI choose the finalists.

Kostek launched her own swimsuit line one month ago today. She called it a body-positive line. And when the line debuted, Camille Kostek selected nine models of all sizes to show off the suits and athleisure wear. She also posted on Instagram that she wanted to design a line that fit normal bodies.

“Being a midsize model in this market,” Camille Kostek wrote, “I am constantly struggling to find swimsuits that fit me in all the right places. This line has everything I could’ve asked for … these are my essentials.”

The Camille Kostek line features 34 pieces, featuring swimsuits and loungewear. You easily can wear the pieces at a pool, beach or lake. Or you can throw them on for running errands or a leisurely lunch or brunch with the girls. Sizes range from small to 2XL. No piece costs more than $125.

Plus, her brand celebrates fitness. Camille Kostek focused on dance and playing lacrosse when she was growing up. Ten percent of the proceeds from the Camille Kostek collection goes to the Movemeant Foundation. That’s an organization that teaches girls and young women that they can find confidence through fitness.

So celebrate looking good in an icy white, mermaid-inspired bikini.
