Chrissy Teigen doesn't hold back

Chrissy Teigen doesn't hold back

Chrissy told Sports illustrated that she felt more clothed in her 2011 body paint shoot than her latest beach outing. Although we're used to seeing Chrissy pose for the issue the 2017 shoot was very special for her - and that's because it was her first shoot for the mag since giving birth to her daughter, Luna!

The SI Swimsuit editor MJ talked about how reluctant Chrissy was at first, but how she really got into it when the cameras started clicking.

We're so glad to see Chrissy back in an itty-bitty bikini - and she looks sexier than ever in the shoot! But, that is exactly what Teigen has done.

Less than a year after having her daughter Luna, my personal Twitter hero Chrissy Teigen absolutely slayed it in her photo shoot for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

The magazine released a few of the photos on Wednesday, and they're just as stunning as we imagined!

This year's photoshoot is a special one for the 31-year-oldĀ because it's her first bikini shoot where she's showing off that lovely post-baby bod!

It's been awhile since I've done anything swimsuit. "I haven't shot since baby".

The 31-year-old supermodel goes on to say that everyone at Sports Illustrated "is going to embrace your body no matter what's happening and embrace the changes".

In the shoot, the Lip Sync Battle host was featured rocking a skimpy purple patterned bikini while laying in the sand on her stomach, showing off her curves.

She also insisted she feels more confident when she wears nothing.

In another set, she has on a string bikini with a pale pattern.

She took time off to focus on her other modeling and hosting gigs and to have the cutest baby on this planet, of course-but now she's back for the 2017 Swimsuit Issue. The magazine is trying to show more diversity and promote body positivity.
