Real Bikini Bodies Look Like This

It's only March and we're already seeing it: "Kate Beckinsale's Hot Bikini Body: Tips From Her Trainer"; "Snooki is 'Beach Body Ready' in New Bikini Pictures"; "'Summer isn't far away': Victoria Beckham prepares her bikini body."

But what does "bikini body" even mean? We happen to believe that if you're physically able to put on a bathing suit, you're bikini-ready. This week we asked readers on Facebook to send us images of their perfectly beach-ready bodies -- unstarved and unairbrushed. We've received some awesome photos already and we hope that you'll send more our way to help us prove that we're all beach- and bathing suit-ready just as we are.
