2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuits: Sexy, Exotic, Girly and Glam!

The 2011 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition hit the stands yesterday, filled with some highly desirable swimwear (and sultry models in gorgeous locations)! In the industry, the SI launch is a big deal and so, swimwear designers from all corners of the planet send their collections months ahead of the shoots to the editors of the magazine, hoping to make it in the issue.

Considering how little fabric designers have to work when it comes to designing swimwear, it's amazing how much variety can be found in the swimwear fashion market. The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition is famous for certain swimwear styles - more specifically, the sexy, girly, exotic and glam categories. Here are our picks from within those styles that SI is famous for:

CATEGORY: GLAMOROUS


Marysia Swim - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   Michael Kors - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Retro-style high-waist bottoms in classic colors lend a serious dose of glamour to Marysia Swim (left) and Michael Kors (right) swimsuits.
     
Christina Liquori Swim - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   So De Mel - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Off-white will always remit to luxury: Christina Liquori's bottom with added detail (left) and So de Mel's swimsuit ensemble (right) are chic and stylish in this timeless shade.
     
Mikoh Swimwear - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Mikoh's expert incorporation of the fashionable bandage style into swimwear works wonders in this coral, satin-like fabric two-piece.

CATEGORY: SEXY

Susan Holmes Swimwear - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   Beach Bunny Swimwear - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Susan Holmes mixes a powerful sexy concoction of the color red + crisscross silhouette + cut-out style (left). Beach Bunny's black one-piece in full lace is cut deep-V and sexy all over.
     
Maui Girl - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   Beach Bunny Swimwear - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Debbie Wilson's mixes ruffles, lace and black to deliver a sexy two-piece (left). Beach Bunny does it again: peek-a-boo, see-through black one-piece with a deep-V cut that may be simply too hot for most mortals!
     

CATEGORY: GIRLY


Susan Homes Swimwear - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   Dolce & Gabbana - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Susan Holmes (left) and Dolce & Gabbana (right) paint their classic-cuts triangle suits with flowers in multi-colored, feminine hues.
     
Betsey Johnson - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   Juicy Couture - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Lace overlays could not be more feminine. Betsey Johnson (left) chooses a red, heart-shape bandeau with that style, while Juicy Couture chooses the classic cut in classic B&W.
     

CATEGORY: EXOTIC


We Are Handsome - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011   Vanda Catucci - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
Unique, different patterns and details are welcome in this category! Here, We Are Handsome's playful animal print one-piece (left) and Vanda Catucci's royal blue with the not-too-often seen straight bandeau (they are usually twisted, or heart-shaped), with encrusted beads and crystals (right).
     
DiNeila Brazil - Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2011
DiNeila Brazil's two-piece is an interesting take on the high-waist fashion, with a modern touch of the crisscross detail on the side.
