It’s almost swimsuit season. Well, at least in the world of Victoria’s Secret it is! While most of the country hasn’t even begun to think about getting in shape for summer, the famous lingerie company is celebrating all things bikini. 


On Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, Victoria’s Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo strutted around the SLS Hotel rooftop pool in one of the brand’s newest itty bitty two-pieces. After showing off the latest VS swimwear collection, the flawless model took a moment to chat with Yahoo Celebrity about the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special, which airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. We picked her brain to find out what she does to prep for beach days, how many bikinis she personally owns, and her best advice for confidently rocking a bathing suit. Believe it or not, even Prinsloo admits to having days where she feels more comfortable covered up. 

Yahoo Celebrity: What do you love about the 2016 bathing suit line?
Behati Prinsloo: I love all the different varieties and styles that Victoria’s Secret is making right now, the very sporty kind, very sexy. The boho styles, the more hippie kind of beachy vibes. And you’ll see it all in the swim special, which is going to be fun.

What’s your favorite type of bathing suit to wear?
I really love that Victoria’s Secret is doing these great Brazilian cut bottoms and you can mix and match all the styles together. I’m loving the more kind of neoprene sporty ones right now. And then I do love a good one-piece. When it fits really well, it’s really flattering. I’m usually in a bikini just because of the tan lines, but I do love a really good one-piece as well.

How many bikinis do you think you own?
Way too many. It’s kind of embarrassing! I can’t even tell you. We’re talking like hundreds. It’s bad. Because we get so many too! We’ll shoot and they’ll give us some on the set or for Victoria’s Secfret. We’re so lucky, we just get so many of them and I can’t not take them. So I have too many.

Do you have an entire closet dedicated to swimsuits?
No, no [laughs]. It’s not that bad. It’s like a drawer. It’s like two drawers maybe. Very full!

What’s your favorite beach destination?
We shot the special in St. Barts and we do it there a lot. It’s actually a really fun place. I do like going there. But then I love Hawaii, a more wilder place as well. We shot in Costa Rica. We were all over. But Hawaii is one of my favorite places.

When we see photos of bathing suit models, they always look so happy frolicking around in the ocean. That water is freezing most of the time though, isn’t it?
Yeah!

What are the techniques for powering through that?
It’s your job and you kind of have to get through it. If the water’s cold, it’s not the worst thing in the world. You’re on a beautiful island. You run and grab a towel, tea. They have everything ready. Sometimes you shoot in a really cold location and they’ll have jackets ready or blankets. You just suck it up.

Have you had any summer vacation bloopers?
So many. I’ve lost my luggage and had a very bad sunburn. Thankfully not in the same trip!
