Facebook

Each year, Sports Illustrated releases their wonderful Swimsuit Issue and even if you’re not a regular subscriber to the popular magazine—you usually find yourself picking up a copy anyway once it’s released.

Kate Upton has been lucky enough to be featured on the cover over the last two years and it should come as no surprise to see the amount of beautiful women that have been featured in the magazine over the years.

In fact, there have been so many beautiful women featured in the Swimsuit Issue over the years that it’s difficult to figure out which ones are the best. Instead of going through each year, we decided to just provide you with some of our favorites from all time.

Obviously, it’s difficult to top someone as beautiful as Upton, but she has quite the competition from over the years—especially when it comes to someone as gorgeous as Beyonce. With the type of year she’s had in the sports world, it wouldn’t even come as a surprise if she managed to earn a spot on the cover for the third-straight year in 2014.

Enough with all of the talking—lets waste no more time and get going on this wonderful list of beautiful ladies. It’s no secret the Swimsuit Edition is one of the greatest things ever invented—which made this slideshow even more fun to create.

Here’s a look at some of the most popular ladies to appear in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition over the years.

    You have to notice that they are getting to perfect to be sexy! Legs to long, long bodies, no fat, wheres the al la natural look? Hairless legs.
    No shaggy eye brows. Perfect little noses. Perfect fitting suits.
    Thinking that they are just made up dolls to make us think they are real.
    Not falling for it!
    Back to the freckled faced non perfect gals.

    Serena Williams is ugly and disgustingly masculine.

    • Annemarie Scully

      Serena Williams is beautiful and an incredibly powerfully built real woman!

  • J-Dub

    Good list, but Lauren Jackson is NOT pretty. Not even remotely.

  • U of AZ fan

    Did you know that two of these lovely ladies had their college careers at the University of Arizona (Amanda Beard and Jennie Finch)? Shows you what a little sun can do….

  • Zach Myles

    Clair Bidez is beautiful! i’d put her first

  • nana

    agree

  • Alan Baum

    No Cheryl Tiegs You must be very young Yes they are all very good looking women but the article did reference women in sports and the vast majority are models and not athletes. Didn’t you have Kathy Ireland, one of my all time favorites listed twice?

  • Marsha Lamar

    BEYONCE with everything she’s got going………………….IS NO ATHLETE nor are many of the others shown. Get it together Bryan Lutz!
