Bikini Babe Hall Of Fame: 25 Insanely Hot Bods

Update: This story was originally published on March 17, 2012. But, in honor of another summer officially being on its way, we've added 10 more women who inspire us to slip into our swimwear and own it in a major way. Click ahead for 25 forever-rad beach babes.
Whether you've been hitting the elliptical or indulging at that pudding place down the block, or both, all winter long, the thought of stripping down to a bikini in public for the first time in months can be somewhat jarring.
Just in case you need a little push, we're here to boost your swimsuit confidence and galvanize your prep with some inspiration in the form of 15 babes who redefine the word "bikini bod." While the body types here run the gamut, one thing is constant: Each woman is confident and sexy — exactly the things we want to be when we hit the sand. These 15 ladies look so darn comfortable, happy, and gorgeous in their bikinis, they're amping us up for our own swimsuit debut.
