Is a LeAnn Rimes Bikini Collection in the Works? 'I Hope That it Comes to Fruition!'

08/04/2014 at 02:27 PM ET

Almost no one knows more about wearing a bikini than Leann Rimes. She’s almost made lounging on yacht decks and hitting the beach a part-time job. But the singer isn’t just having fun seaside — she’s also getting tons of two-piece-related practical research and user experience, and now, she says, she’d like to put it to good use by creating her own bikini line.

In an interview with Fox 411 (in which she says she can be “redneck with the best of them,” among other things), Rimes is asked whether she’s ever considered starting her own bikini line. “Yes, I have! And I’ve been researching that a little bit more as we speak,” she says. “I’ve worn so many bikinis that I know what works and what doesn’t. I know what I like and I know what’s missing in the marketplace. We shall see! I hope that it comes to fruition.”

And she’s willing to admit that she may have a bit of a bikini overload in her closet — she says she can’t even guess at the number she owns, a problem she compares to her shoe addiction. “The other day, I said I had 80 pairs of shoes and Eddie was like, “No way. You have at least 140 pairs of shoes,” she says. “I started counting and I told him, ‘Babe, I stopped counting at 200.’ That’s pretty much the same thing with bikinis. I’d like to say that I don’t have a ton, but I know I do.”

What can we expect from a Rimes-designed bikini line? “I don’t know. I’m an earthly girl. I love very natural colors — nudes and golds. Beautiful, feminine and classy,” she tells the site, adding, “I think the biggest misconception about bikinis is that if you’re heavier, that you need to wear more coverage on your butt. It looks horrible on any woman. The skimpier the bottoms, the better your butt looks! If you look at pictures of women with bikinis that cover the whole butt, it just looks frumpy. Flaunt what you’ve got!”

We think she may have a potential name for her bikini line right there. Would you shop a Leann Rimes swimwear line? Any advice you’d like to share with the star?

No. I think she’s delusional. I think whoever is going to consider working with her needs to do their own market research on her before choosing to invest in her. I think she is very polarizing and very much disliked. People will read about her but I don’t think they’d give their money to her and buy a bikini.

Jen on

Nope. Noway. NEVER. She has horrible style, I don’t care how many bikinis she owns. I own a ton of workout clothes but that doesn’t make me qualified to design them.

HowTacky on

Nope. I wouldn’t buy anything the Sleestak is selling!

My mom says a lady never swears, but FUDGE NO! I wouldn’t want anything remotely associated to her. I’d wear Kartrashian before Rimes rubbish!

Lindy on

Heck yeah !!!!!

Chris on

Sure why not? I’m buying for the style and want to look good. I don’t give a hoot who the designer is and her bathing suits look good.

Nope! Not going to support her after what she did, and the horrible person she is. Her new reality tv show is just an obvious attempt to try and force people to like her. Nope, you made your bed and now you have to lay in it. Everyone is fully justified in not liking you so just go away.

Kelli on

She’s an actual moron.
