Is there any better way to mark the genesis of summer than with a gaggle of sultry celebs sporting the teeniest of bikinis? The answer is no, of course, and proof of this astute observation can be spotted all over Instagram, as many celebs have taken to the image-sharing app in the past few days to plaster images of their envious–but no less admirable–bikini bodies for fans and thirsty dudes alike to fawn over. But because you’re not here to listen to me babble about beautiful women with whom I’ve never and likely will never meet, let’s get right to it.

MILEY CYRUS

Summmmmer is heeeeerrrre! Bring on Z fruit , sunshine (always spf) , & goooood times!

A post shared by Miley Cyrus (@mileycyrus) on

On June 21, the summer solstice, aka the longest day of the year, Miley kicked back in an itsy-bitsy bikini next to her Shetland sheepdog, Emu, and labradoodle, Dora, who she rescued with her fiance, Liam Hemsworth. Despite the fact that Dora is clearly hounding for a piece of Miley’s melons (she’s eating watermelon, pervs), another image posted later that day shows the 24-year-old feeding Dora some fruit, adding that dog owners should “be cautious of seeds & rind,” insisting, “otherwise, it’s totally safe!”

CARMEN ELECTRA

Take me back to the islands 🌴

A post shared by Carmen Electra (@carmenelectra) on

A few weeks back, former Baywatch babe and Playboy Playmate Carmen Electra reminisced on Instagram about a recent trip she had taken with a jaw-dropping image to serve as a gentle reminder that, at 45-year-old, Electra’s still got it, and she’s got it in spades. Doing what she does so well, Electra was sure to capture every angle of her rock-hard body which honestly looks just as good–if not better–than she it did in her first Playboy shoot back in 1995. She captioned the image, “Take me back to the islands.”

She also included this throwback just yesterday, which we’ll toss in for good measure.

KENDALL JENNER

🍕🍕🍕

A post shared by Kendall (@kendalljenner) on

There’s not much to say here, really, aside from the fact that Kendall Jenner looks unbelievable in a bikini. But you know that already. If you look closely at the deceivingly casual poolside pic, her shirt–if you can even call it that–reads “Pizza Boys,” and she cleverly captioned the image with three pizza emojis. I guess, as a supermodel, if you can’t actually eat pizza, the next best thing is to lead others to believe you do. (Note: I have no idea if Kendall actually eats pizza, she may just have superb genetics, which, judging by her family, is quite possible.)

COURTNEY STODDEN

Though we can’t say this is a rare occurrence, Courtney Stodden, who I’m still not entirely sure what she’s famous for aside from her uh, assets, posted a very Courtney Stodden video of herself dancing in either a bikini or a skimpy set of panties yesterday. After you see the video, you’ll understand why the distinction isn’t necessary. According to the caption, this is the kind of stuff the professional blonde gets up to “when no one’s around.”

EMILY RATAJKOWSKI

Weekend!

Thinking of her fans while on vacation in Italy, the babe of immortalized “Blurred Lines” fame made sure her–buzzkill alert–boyfriend Jeff Magid captured a few shots of her in a bikini where she looks, as has become expected (she has 13.6 million Instagram followers), absolutely flawless.
