Of the segments with bikinis, my favorite was the first where Marissa Miller and Melissa Keller both wake up early near Iowa cornfields - and wear gauzy see-through top swimsuits - where the girls might as well have been topless for all that was revealed. But the women soldier on despite the cold and lack of sleep, and they genuine appear to enjoy what they're doing, as do the rest of the girls in this video.
There's a nice segment with Anna Kournikova and Serena Williams also in swimsuits. Anna looked every bit as good in a white bikini as she did on the wall poster in my baby brother's room. And Serena looked like a younger - and just as sexy -- version of Tina Turner! She has Tina's great hips - and Tina's million dollar legs. (Must've come from all that tennis, huh?)
To commemorate the 40th Anniversary Swimsuit Edition (of the magazine), a Who's Who of ex-swimsuit models was assembled, including Elle McPherson, Paulina Porozkova, Christie Brinkley, Tyra Banks, and my favorite, Cheryl Tiegs. Elle especially looked great (as she does modeling her lingerie line which is available here on Amazon).Read more ›
The SI Swimsuit specials, are a promotional tool intended to raise interest in the annual swimsuit issue. You get a peek at which models will be in the issue, and where the SI crew went to shoot them. These are mostly behind the scenes, making of type productions, where you get a taste for what was involved in the various shoots. Unless you are a model, or photographer looking for some pointers, there probably isn't a lot reason to buy these things.
That being said, the 2004 edition marking the 40th anniversary of the swimsuit issue, is better than most in the series. The theme was "American Beauty", which meant staying at home, and shooting at various places around the USA. The results are some different looks than what you normally see. Instead of exotic out of the way locales, or remote tropical beaches, the SI crew is down on a farm in Iowa, on a ranch in Wyoming, in the Adirondack mountains, on the eastern shore at Montauk, New York, and for a taste of the south, along the waterways of Natchez, Mississippi. Surrounded by red and orange rock formations, Lake Powell, Utah, is the most picturesque location, used for a shoot.
The models are of course world class, with Angela Lindvall, Marissa Miller, Bridget Hall, Petra Nemcova, Ana Beatriz Barros, Jessica White and Melissa Keller, being among those featured. SI is the pinnacle for any swimsuit model, and everyone involved is motivated to give their best effort, hoping to capture the much coveted SI cover. An honor that went to Veronika Varekova, who was photographed by SI veteran, Walter Iooss Jr.Read more ›

I now own six swimsuit videos and I like this one the best! It has great scenery,especially the supermodels, and of all of the models I think Marisa Miller is a knockout.Published on May 10, 2013 by Mike
I admit to my mistake, I thought this was a video with photos, no a film with all the e-Channel type nonsense. You must spend a lot of time in order to look at something worth it. Read morePublished on October 17, 2011 by Enrique Bozzo

for a Swimsuit DVD. The same boring shlock they've been feeding us for years, and I own all of SIs videos since 1996 (so that makes me the idiot, I guess). Read morePublished on October 6, 2004 by Michael Cooke
