Bikini Bods 2012!
The best celebrity bikinis of 2012...so far.
Forget the two piece! There’s only one swimwear trend that’s taking over this season!

Monokinis are the hottest things to hit the beach this year and stars like Kim Kardashian, Miranda Kerr, and Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi have already been seen flaunting their curves in these skimpy suits. Unlike the old fashioned bathing suits, monokinis provide a little more coverage than the average two-piece while remaining fun and sexy.
