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.”

Laura on

Star on

Her body is awesome. Nice and toned.

Lindsay on

Why is this girl famous again?!? I don’t get it. aslo why did ppl give Heidi Montag problems about her breast implants, but nobody says anything about this girls? yikes!

ghettoroostah on

they don’t look as fake as heidi’s, IMO. but she looks great!

stacy on

Yep..I use to look like that till I had a baby. Oh the good ol’ days. Keep rockin it Audrina while you got it!

ps on

This pic has been photo shopped because she was in an article last week and she was skin and bones.

Tessa on

Sorry I don’t find that “banging” at all. Too skinny, no curves. She looks like a teenage boy practically.

Pete on

I don’t get how people think bony women are sexy. She has no curves and implants. She is cute and that’s it. Heck Jessica Simpson has a great body, not very bright but that”s a body.

tony on

All the fat chicks are haters…Tessa i’m taking to you.

Lori A on

Love the swimsuit.

Tammy on

There have been a lot of recent photos taken of her where she was too skinny. She looks good in this photo. She really does have a great body as long as she eats a sandwich once in awhile.

leaveLeannealone on

This is ridiculous. Why does she look FABULOUS and yet, Leanne Rhimes, is “Scarey Skinny?” Such a double standard. Stop picking on Leanne and yet glorify this girl and Tori Spelling, who did the same thing as Leanne. Audrina looks sick and unhealthy without a muscle in her body. At least Leanne is working out.

Somegirl on

Hey, Tony, “fat chicks”? Oh, you mean the ones who don’t starve themselves to be stick thin to meet the media’s standards. Oh. nice buddy. good job!

ceilingeyesaudrina on

c’mon! no one whose bikini body includes FAKE BREASTS deserves to be complimented about their figure!!

it’s ridiculous. it’s like complimenting nikki minaj on her a$$. ;)

Maria on

Too skinny and no I’m not a fat chick who’s jealous

Jenn on

Her BODY looks great, toned, lean, not over muscular, and fit. Props to her. Boobs, are fake. We know it, we get it. She still has to WORK on that body though. Give credit where credit is due!

And to the other poster— you CAN have a baby and still have a rockin’ body! :)

Weenie on

Wow, I wish I could look as good as her. I wont even get into a bathing suit :( She looks great here. All the winers below saying she looks like a boy and is too skinny are fat girls who are jealous. She is NOT to skinny, and you all know you would die to look like her. So stop hating, haters.

Gloria on

She looks fit, however a little too thin.

Lindsay on

I thought Shape magazine was about, well, being in SHAPE!?! Everyone has seen Audrina in a bikini on TMZ, and she is nothing but bones, bones, bones. I give credit to women who rock a hot body and show they have worked hard to develop their muscles, but come on! She is way too skinny.

peoplereader on

I think she looks great!! People keep saying, “oh she needs more curves.” But the bottomline is not every one can be curvy just like not every one can be skinny. You just have to work with what you have and I think she’s doing a great job.

Katie on

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!”

Jenny on

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!

shalie on

The swimsuit is at World Swimwear.. but they have it in yellow, brown and zebra. It called Brilliant Ruffles..

Paula on

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!

None are particularly tatlneed or fascinating human beings. I like Kristin for her spunk and her attitude. LC has been the most successful in terms of her career , she just got another book publishing deal and making the most money, however she was a pushover on Laguna Beach and being used by Steven for years. LC always putting on the Miss Innocent act is annoying. Audrina is the most fit and in shape but she is annoying too (the way she talks) and being a doormat with that guy Justin Bobby. I don’t really like any of them but I like their style and their lifestyle .
