Every winter Sports Illustrated publishes its much-awaited annual swimsuit issue, filled with tan, willowy models in poses that suggest they are equally adept at indoor sports.
Eye candy for many male readers, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue also works as a shopping guide for women, cluing them in to the latest swim suits, bathing suits, bikinis, and thongs for the beach. Below are some of the best-looking beachwear brands appearing in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit edition.
Wondering where to acquire that tiny white patch of fabric worn on the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition cover by Kate Upton? That model and others from the issue bear the Letarte brand.
Becca swim bikinis traveled to Australia for the 2013 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition.
Beach Bunny swimsuits come in a variety of sexy styles.
So little fabric, so much sex appeal, Indah swimsuits barely covered the Sports Illustrated models.
The company that made its name in sexy underwear now offers beachwear. Separate bikini tops and bottoms one pieces and coverups are in the brand's swimwear line.
If you've got the figure to wear one of these body-hugging swimsuits (and the cash to spend on this pricy designer label), you'll be one in a million on the beach or at the pool.
So little fabric... so much expense. The most expensive swimsuit we found at Neiman Marcus was a monokini by Herve Leger that would set a girl back $980. But don't let that scare you off. Designer-name swimsuits started at $30.
This is not your mother's one-piece Gottex swimsuit. This year's line features prints both jungle and geometric.
Everything But Water sells swimsuits made by several designers whose creations appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition. Among this year's are ABS by Allen Schwartz, Despi, Karla Colletto, and Red Carter.
