Binibining Pilipinas Best in Swimsuit Through the Years

Binibining Pilipinas Best in Swimsuit Through the Years

Years ago, the controversial swimsuit competition in pageants was meant to showcase candidates’ physical attributes. Beautiful, leggy, and curvy women were highly favored. Critics are arguing that swimsuit segments have no place in today’s beauty pageants.

But for me, the swimsuit competition has drastically changed in recent years. It is now used in promoting diversity, inclusion, and empowerment.

I believe that Binibining Pilipinas is more focused on the candidates’ confidence as they walk onstage wearing swimwear, and they award the Best in Swimsuit to a woman whose confidence shone through during the swimsuit competition.

Let’s look at the past winners of the Binibining Pilipinas Best in Swimsuit award.

2022 Binibining Pilipinas

Gabrielle Basiano from Eastern Samar bagged this year’s swimsuit award. She exuded confidence in a Justine Aliman white two-piece swimwear.

Indeed, these queens embodied the attributes that the Binibining Pilipinas is looking for. They are diverse and empowered. They prove that the organization doesn’t have a particular physical standard when choosing the best woman for Best in Swimsuit award. It’s how they carry themselves on stage.
