Allie Ayers, a finalist in the 2018 Swim Search, returned to the magazine in ’21 for a gorgeous feature in Atlantic City. The Snyder, Okla., native is the founder of Bissy Swim, a made-to-order swimsuit brand focused on sustainability and diversity. She also runs a mentoring platform geared toward young women entering the modeling industry. 

“My experience with the Swim Search and with the SI Swim team was nothing short of extraordinary. It truly did change my life and I’ve fallen so in love with inspiring others through the platform I was able to create during that journey,” she said before entering the open casting call for a second time. “I’d love nothing more than to have another go at it! To take what I created with my first opportunity and grow that even more. Why not be the first SI Swim Search winner to go a second time?”

Below are five of our favorite photos from the 29-year-old’s photo shoot with Yu Tsai in Atlantic City.
