During my time with Playboy, I’ve written about a lot of different bikinis. Hopefully, I will write about many more bikinis. I’ve come across small ones, tight ones, lace ones, fringe ones, light ones, dark ones, and every other kind of bikini you can possibly imagine. I basically know what Devin Brugman and Tash Oakley’s closet looks like. However, I think that Lindsey Vonn may have wore my favorite bikini of all time.

I suppose it’s technically a monokini, right? Actually, I suppose it’s neither because IT’S PAINT. In reality, she isn’t wearing anything at all! And THAT is what makes it my favorite bikini of all time. Lindsey dons the paint swimsuit in the 2016 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. I’m not even sure you can call that a swimsuit, but I won’t tell on her if you won’t.

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how they got her ready for this awesome photo shoot.
