Our July/August 2015 cover is everything summer, featuring eight Playmates who know a thing or two about the art of sunbathing. From the subtle neon details to their barely-there neon bikinis, our July/August 2015 double issue will remind you why summer really is the best time of the year. Because who doesn’t love a bunch of beach bunnies?

Playmates featured clockwise from top left: Heather Rae Young, Gia Marie, Stephanie Branton, Ciara Price, Chelsie Aryn, Roxanna June, Val Keil and Audrey Allen.

Curious as to how we pulled off the cover? These exclusive behind-the-scenes pics and video will give you a couple hints. You’ll probably need to cool off in a pool after seeing these.
