Yellow Dianthus by Maaji Swimwear

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue is here! And the 2010 bikinis featured are h-o-t. With exotic locations such as India, Portugal, and the Maldives as the backdrop, the models had to bring their A-game. The swimsuits selected were cherry-picked from the best of the bunch, and we are proud to carry several of the designers selected for this year’s spread.

Among our favorites are:

Bendita Fiesta by Agua Bendita

Agua Bendita Swimwear presented two of its 2010 bikinis in the SI issue. The Bendita Fiesta, which features a medley of sequins embellishing the neckline and front bottom. This string bikini looks amazing on model Esti Ginzburg, an Israeli bombshell with an all American girl appeal. Simply gorgeous.

Also by Agua Bendita is the Bendito Biscuit, a couture bikini adorned with clear sequins throughout the top and bottom. The best part of this suit is the special beading embellishments on the waistline and straps. The suit was modeled by Hilary Rhoda, a native of Chevy Chase, MD.

Maaji Swimwear also debuted two of their fabulous designs. The Alas Acquaticae, an underwire bikini inspired by a mermaid godess, is strutted by blonde Swiss Julie Ordon. We love the bedroom backdrop. Goes with the lingerie flair in this frilly suit.

Also by Maaji is the vibrant Yellow Dianthus Bikini (above), which is a pinup inspired swimsuit with criss cross detail at bust. As you can tell by this year’s SI cover, bright yellow is in, and this appropriately themed number is modeled by Brazilian beauty Cintia Dicker. We love her pippy-long-stockings-meets-sexy-girl-next-door look.

Cleopatra bikini by Badgley Mischka

Finally, Badgley Mischka Swimwear makes its presence known on the SI 2010 issue with the gorgeous Cleopatra Underwire bikini in charcoal gray. You can’t go wrong with this demi cup top that features a beaded dark gray embellishment at center bust. An adorable little number for sure, modeled by the sexy Damaris Lewis, a proud native of the empire state that’s New York.
