Audrina Patridge's Advice for Bikini Boldness

Audrina Patridge is in a bikini just about every day of the week, and it’s all because of one trait: confidence. “I don’t even think twice about wearing a swimsuit because it’s always been a part of my lifestyle,” she shares in the July issue of SHAPE. “But I have girlfriends who are so afraid to show their bodies, they won’t take off their towels at the beach or pool. It’s a shame because everyone can look good in a suit.” Patridge, who started swimming at age 4, credits her bikini-ready body to lots of outdoor activities — biking, beach volleyball and hiking or running with her pup Lady — plus an intense exercise routine, outlined on SHAPE.com. But you don’t have to work out as hard as she does to work a two-piece. Patridge first recommends choosing a bathing suit that flatters your own figure. “So many women will buy one they see a celebrity wearing, thinking it’ll look good on them too,” she says. “Be open-minded. Even if you think you know what works on your body, you may be really surprised by the results.” To get her beach-girl glow, the Audrina star uses self-tanner, and is always sure to protect her skin with sunscreen. She keeps her hair summery year-round, too, by washing it only twice per week and using dry shampoo on the days in between. To fix flyaways, she rubs Moroccan Oil onto her ends. “It smells really wonderful,” she says, “and I have less breakage when I comb my hair.” And to give her body a little boost, she does a quick series of squats and sit-ups before hitting the beach. “I like to get the blood flowing to those areas,” she explains. “I feel tighter and stronger, and it gives my skin a nice rosy glow.”

You know, normally she annoys me, but she actually gives some pretty decent advice. And points for admitting to an intense workout regime. I hate when celebs b/s their workout and diet. “I eat foie gras for breakfast, lunch and dinner – because I loooooove food and never ever diet – and do 12 crunches twice a week and just magically have this body!”

Ironic the 2011 shapeless version of Audrina is on the cover of “Shape” magazine. In 2010 Audrina was one of the shapeliest famous women in a bikini. Really like the 2010 enhanced version of Audrina better. “Shape” only missed it by a year!

How does Audrina Patridge, who is shapeless in 2011, make the cover of “Shape” magazine? A year ago she would have been perfect! Audrina’s shape was enviable and adorable. She ruled the beach with her slender, curvy shape. However, after having her cleavage so drastically reduced, flat-chested, shapeless Audrina is unflatteringly ordinary. Just compare the Blue Shape magazine bikini picture this year to the Bora Bora purple bikini pictures from last year at this time. She is no longer a glamorous dramatic beach beauty. Just a plain California girl with good hair!
