2012 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue
By Anna Glassman

We reveal our swimsuit picks from this iconic issue of the sports magazine.

Feb 17, 2012


Between New York Fashion Week, Valentine’s Day and the release of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, we’ve been experiencing a bit of a sensory overload this week. While it seems like the iconic SI issue is about anything but the swimsuits, given that this is a fashion website, we dove headfirst into the pages to bring you some of the more substantial, erm, bits of the swimwear.

Of course, we have to show the cover: Kate Upton in the obligatory itsy bitsy teenie weenie bikini by Suit Yourself Bikinis, a unique design concept by Kathleen Bruening that offers customizable, hand sewn swimwear. Top right: Jessica Perez sports a trendy scarf print by Brazilian label TeenyB Bikini Couture. Bottom right: Ariel Meredith struts it in the streets in a festive beaded bikini by Maui Girl.

From left to right: Our favorite flame-haired beauty Cintia Dicker in a forward scoop-neck suit by Rebecca Virtue. Izabel Goulart models a lively neon update on traditional crochet by Anna Kosturova. Michelle Vawer dons one of our favorites from the issue, a minimalist monokini by Ola Vida. Last year’s cover model Irina Shayk shows her wild side in a sizzling cheetah monokini, also by Rebecca Virtue.
