  • WhoCares

    Great Abs.mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

  • Pamela Brown

    Couldn’t they find her a better fitting swim suit??? That top is not very flattering to her assets….suddenly I am hungry for some flapjacks… to Denny’s.

  • PETE

    This Swimmsuit Issue may be very attractive for some skinny people, but how about the “curvy, sexy women” represented by the Sorella Swimsuit company. These Swimsuit Magazines miss a major part of the women population by bringing models with figures nearly nobody has!! Swimsuits for skinny women are easily fitted and made. Just try to show a nice fitting swimsuit on a curvy woman!!

  • Rowwdy

    I guess I am more particular. I don’t like women whose b o o bs look like 2 big soup bowels spread across their cheat and become part of their armpits. In 10 years her b o o bs are going to be on her navel. Her hair looks like straw. Airbrushing does wonders. My wife, after birthing 3 babies (all at once) definitely has a nicer shape.

    • picklewalker

      I gotta agree. Dang, her bosom looks like a 40 year old that breast fed 5 kids!

  • Smoking Suzanne

    oh my goodness, all the chicks look great. After 3 children I can only dream of looking like that and then I’ll wake up sweating from the reality of working out..EVERYDAY ! I was just commenting that for the past two days the paper has been like a girlie magazine without the price.

  • CT Native

    She’s sure a beauty, but not as beautiful as my wife. Happy Valentine’s Day Honey!!!

    • Bklyn mom

      That is sweet! What a nice husband.

    • Rowwdy

      WTG CT…best darn comment on here.

  • Old news

    She old news and has already had the cover before. There were many other girls that look just as good (if not better). I think SI should have a different girl every year.

    • KPMc

      She was an inset last year, not the actual “cover” model.

      Not that hard to look up as it is 2012 and we have this thing called the interweb.

  • Mike

    God … she’s perfect . . hottest girl on the planet !

    • Rowwdy

      Sang, you are easily pleased Mike.

      • Rowwdy

        Sang, you are easily pleased Mike.

        Sorry for typo. I meant “dang” instead of “sang”.
