Kim Kardashian has the best beach body
Almost one third of IndependentWoman.ie readers say the curvy reality star has the best beach body.
Despite the fact that this could be the coldest May we’ve had in decades, bikini season is upon us. You can expect a downpour of glossy magazine features on how to get the perfect bikini body, as Ireland’s women drop the packet of biscuits and stock up on fake tan and anti-cellulite creams, regardless of whether they’re going to Courtown or the Canaries.
Fuelling some of this pursuit of the body beautiful is the relentless exposure to images of celebrities, soaking up the rays on exotic beaches. Whether it’s because of nature, hard work, or a little surgical intervention, life is a beach when you look like Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Aniston or Miranda Kerr. But whose bikini body is the best?
When readers of IndependentWoman.ie were asked which bathing beauty they prefer, they opted for fuller-figures as opposed to size zeroes, with a certain reality TV star and her killer curves topping the poll, followed by two Irish beauties.
More than 30 per cent voted Kim Kardashian, as having the bikini body they most admire. The star of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashian’, who is currently dating Kanye West, is famed for her generous and toned shape and isn’t afraid to show it off.
In second place is Irish model Georgia Salpa, with 20 per cent of readers declaring her’s to be the best beach body. Georgia, who shot to international fame when she appeared on Channel 4’s ‘Big Brother, recently made FHM magazine’s Sexiest Women in the World list. Explaining her enviable figure, the 26-year-old says she loves her food but also her exercise.
Claudine Keane, the 28-year wife of footballer Robbie, comes third with 19 per cent of the votes. The model amazed viewers when she appeared on the ‘Late Late Show’, looking trim only two weeks after giving birth to her son Robert, and said that a healthy, active pregnancy was the reason why. Lingerie brand Ultimo clearly think she has the right shape – she’s been the face of the company’s campaigns for the last two years.
“Our results show that IndependentWoman.ie readers don’t necessarily think that a stick thin figure is the best look. Their choice of best bikini bodies says that curvy, toned and above all healthy is what’s considered most attractive.” says Aisling Nagle, marketing manager with IndependentWoman.ie.
