Crystal Renn’s J. Crew Shoot

Model Crystal Renn is sporting some of this year’s hottest bathing suit fashions in a shoot she did for J. Crew magazine.

In the shoot, the model uses her healthy curves to show off some of the hottest new swimsuits coming out of J. Crew’s new catalog.  J. Crew has recently been straying away from the traditionally svelte models, using women closer to an average size like actresses Katie Holmes or Lauren Hutton, but this is the first time that the brand has done so for their swimsuit line.

Crystal’s refreshingly healthy figure helps show what the swimsuits would look like on the average girl, instead of a stick thin model.  The model, whose been open with her battles with anorexia and modeled plus-size fashions, looked like the girl next door in J. Crew’s  figure-flattering suits.  The model glowed with a happy and healthy look in the shoot, sporting everything from underwired one-pieces to casual floral bikini bottoms.

The collection of one-pieces included fifties inspired looks, like this classically cute spotted melon suit. The cut makes for a fresh and fun beach style, without revealing to much skin. For those who aren’t entirely comfortable with their stomachs or have other problem areas they want to hide, the suits may be just what the doctor ordered to still get the perfect beach look.

Renn also sported one-pieces including a pink and white striped suit, see above, and this army-inspired green suit. With its figure-flattering twist top and unique tone, the sexy strapless suit gives the model a perfectly glamorous look fit for any girl on the go.
