Getting ready for a beach vacation? Planning to try on bikinis or go bathing suit shopping? Just looking to get a little more body confident? We’ve got you covered!
Us Weekly talks to the world’s hottest bikini and lingerie models — including Behati Prinsloo, Ashley Graham, Jasmine Tookes and more — all the time. And we’ve been gathering a treasure-trove of their fail-safe favorite fitness and diet tips. From lightening-fast weight-loss ideas to diets that actually work (keto, intermittent fasting, celery juice, oh my!) to quick strengthening tricks (hello, planks!) to the long-term fitness regimens that help them get their flat abs, leg muscles and toned arms and butts, these professional pretty people have shared their best beach-body lifestyle advice with Us.
Sure, the glamazons who become Victoria’s Secret models and cover stars may be genetically blessed, but these celebrities still put in plenty of effort and have tried most trends on the planet in an effort to look and feel their best. As VS Angel Tookes told Us in February 2019, “I feel my most confident, best and sexiest when I’m just really happy.” And she’s happy when she’s getting strong with fun workouts. “I’m really into Pilates lately. It’s super good. I love doing the reformer machine,” she added. But even she has a quick-fix for when she needs to slip into a two-piece in a hurry (hint: it involves a trampoline!).
And if you’re looking to adjust your mindset, get more body-positive or find a mantra, you’ve come to the right place too. Aerie spokesmodel Iskra Lawrence reveals how she got comfortable going to the beach — and what she tells herself and others to remember before slipping into a suit. Meanwhile, Heidi Klum shares her 10-minute strength-training routine and her secret to feeling bold in the nude. “I like small, little triangle bikinis. I’m the most confident and comfortable in little string bikinis because, you know, it’s also easier to take it off,” she tells Us.
