Jazzmine Carthon Is A Finalist In The #SISwimSearch
A beautiful bodaciously baaawdied baddie is a finalist in Sports Illustrated’s Annual Swim Search competition. IPM model Jazzmine Carthon recently walked the runway during Miami Swim Week courtesy of Sports Illustrated.
The publication has narrowed down their search for fresh faces (and bodies) for their #SISwimSearch to 16 finalists that include Jazzmine.
According to Jazz she feels blessed to be able to represent for curvy girls and her fellow contestants have been overwhelmingly supportive.
“I’m here to represent the beauty that has brown skin, thick thighs, curls, cellulite, and above all of that, CONFIDENCE!!!” said Jazzmine. “I feel so honored to be amongst such a diverse and powerful group of women who didn’t come here to tear each other down and really spent the past few days uplifting each other.”

I tried to wait until my happy tears dried and my nerves calmed down to post but here I am, a whole day and a half later and I’m still crying and my nerves are still a wreck (in a good way, of course lol)!! I can barely put into words (seriously, I’ve erased & rewritten this caption several times now 🤦🏾♀️) how overjoyed I am, how grateful I feel, and how hard it is for me to even understand how I got here. I’ve literally had to give myself pep talks about how I deserve to be here on this runway with the other individually beautiful women to represent my own kind of beauty! I’m here to represent the beauty that has brown skin, thick thighs, curls, cellulite, and above all of that, CONFIDENCE!!! I feel so honored to be amongst such a diverse and powerful group of women who didn’t come here to tear each other down and really spent the past few days uplifting each other, hyping each other up, crying on each other’s swimsuits, and learning how to do the “Kiki, Do You Love Me” dance lol. @mj_day and the @si_swimsuit team surely picked an awesome #Sweet16 for this year’s #SISwimSearch. Thank you @si_swimsuit so much for seeing a special light in me and giving me this platform to help me share it with the world! And a special thank you to everyone for your well wishes, positive vibes, prayers, and congratulations. Your support has fully surpassed my expectations and I appreciate the love more than you know!! I really hope you all feel as amazing and triumphant as we did out on that runway!! Another step towards a more diverse, inclusive, and multidimensional industry is a win for ALL of us!!! [Look 3 of 3 for the @si_swimsuit @paraisofashionfair runway show]
If Jazz wins the #SISwimSearch she’ll follow in the footsteps of thicky fine Tabria Majors. Remember her?
