Top 10 Miss Swimsuit Bodies of 2017

10. Baylee Jensen, Miss Utah USA 2017

Baylee Jensen, Miss Utah USA 2017, didn't need a bikini to show off her toned physique at Miss USA. She stole the show in a one-piece instead of the traditional two-piece. This one-piece suit is adorned with a necklace-like halter directing the eye to her strong shoulders and biceps. The high cut of the bottom of the suit helps show off her muscular legs while the belt defines her waistline.

9. Chelsea Dubczak, Miss Iowa 2017

Chelsea Dubczak, Miss Iowa 2017, showed off her toned arms and legs on the Miss America stage. Strong-looking bodies led the way in 2017. This swimsuit is a more of a traditional pageant cut, but the bottoms have a more sporty cut with the straight-across waistband and hip-hugging style to accent her thighs.

8. Alex Smith, Miss Oklahoma USA 2017

Alex Smith, Miss Oklahoma USA 2017, appeared perfectly toned, tanned and proportioned on stage at Miss USA, proving Oklahoma girls may be landlocked but can still look like beach babes. Her suit helps show off her figure without overemphasizing or hiding any part of her body. The bottoms are cut high to elongate her legs while the color blocking offers symmetry and definition.

7. Laryssa Bonacquisti, Miss Louisiana 2017

Another tanned and toned body to grace the stage came from the Gulf-bordering state of Louisiana. Laryssa Bonacquisti, Miss Louisiana 2017, has washboard abs that look strong enough to withstand hurricane-force winds. Her swimsuit is very traditional MAO style, but the bottoms aren't super high cut, however, they still allow her legs to show from hip to toe.

6. Rachel Peters, Miss Universe Philippines 2017

Rachel Peters, Miss Universe Philippines 2017, showed off her perfectly curved waistline in a similarly styled swimsuit that helped fellow Miss Universe Philippines titleholder, Pia Wurtzbach, win the Miss Universe title in 2015. The bandeau top was worn by Wurtzbach at Miss Universe and is a great choice for bustier girls who want to feel secure on stage. Typically, hippier girls want to avoid tie side bottoms as the ties draw attention to that part of the body. However, the ties help give Peters shape that could otherwise get lost on stage.

The contestants have spent the last few weeks touring, filming, rehearsing and preparing to compete for the Miss Universe crown in Las Vegas. HO/The Miss Universe Organization

5. Andreia Gibau, Miss Earth United States 2017

As a swimsuit model and pageant contestant, Andreia Gibau, Miss Earth United States 2017, has to make sure her body is in top shape for television, Youtube and the still camera. Her abs totally stand out but don't steal the show from the rest of her beauty. Gibau's suit is perfect for her body as the ties on the bottoms accent her hips while offering a small amount of fabric to help elongate her legs. The top is halter style, which is a very popular style used to define the chest while holding the girls in place no matter what size bra you wear. The criss-cross details draw the eye directly to her abs so they get the appreciation they deserve without stealing the spotlight from the woman in the suit.

4. Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Miss Universe 2017

Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, Miss Universe 2017, shined like the sun on stage at Miss Universe in her yellow, non-polka-dotted bikini. Her figure is very natural, not drifting into either extreme of too muscular or too thin. Her suit style is a mix of a bandeau with a bra top offering both support and detail. The straight-across waistline and hipster style is pretty popular in the Miss Universe system.

3. Meridith Gould, Miss Minnesota USA 2017

Bringing the sporty is sexy look to the Miss USA stage, Meredith Gould, Miss Minnesota USA 2017, chose to cover her arms and show off her lean legs in this expectation-defying ensemble. Will we see more like it this year? This suit style can allow a girl to cover up flabby arms or actually help show off muscular arms in a feminine way. The top also holds her in place while showing off her abs. The bottoms, in the MUO hipster style, show off her legs perfectly. You can see her playing beach volleyball, boogie-boarding or surfing with this body!

2. Corrin Stellakis, Miss Multiverse 2017

Corrin Stellakis, Miss Multiverse 2017, made our list in 2016 at number four when she was Miss Earth United States/Miss Earth Fire. It's no wonder she has a pageant-winning body; she is the owner of Fit to Reign Personal Training and Pageant Coaching.

Stellakis is petite but proportioned, so she is able to pull off an itty bitty bikini without a problem. In this suit, the tie front draws the eye to her abs and feminine features and, if functional, can be tied tighter to lift and define. The detail on the neckline draws the eye up to her shoulders and face. The bottoms are also tiny, but the shape elongates her torso, making her appear taller, and the ties define her shape.

1. Alyssa Beasley, Miss Georgia 2017

Alyssa Beasley, Miss Georgia 2017, has an incredible body that rocked in everything she wore. Her strength showed in her talent and we couldn't help but pick our jaws up off the floor when we saw the Instagram photos of her in her evening gown. When you look amazing in your entire pageant wardrobe, you definitely have a body worthy of being number one for the year.

Beasley's swimsuit is the epitome of a classic MAO cut. The top lifts and while the clam-shell detail defines. The bottoms are a high-cut brief, making its way back to the beaches and the stage for the first time since the 1990s. Her legs look incredibly long thanks to the high cut, and the white color pops on her tanned skin.

Top 10 Swimsuit Bodies in the Mrs. Division in 2017

10. Mrs. Kentucky Lake 2018, Kim Robinson

Kim Robinson showed off her incredibly toned arms and legs while competing for the title of Mrs. Kentucky 2018. You can tell she knows how to target each muscle group in her arms. The definition in her arms is accentuated by her halter top, which draws attention to her upper body and shows off her shoulders. Robinson's legs balance out her physique and ensure that her overall look is proportional. This balance shows that she has spent hours in the gym in order to achieve this physique.

With a killer figure like hers, it's no surprise that Phuong Le, who was representing Vietnam, captured the international title of Mrs. World Peace 2017. Her long and lean physique is balanced out by her soft curves, making her look both strong and feminine.

At the Mrs. International pageant, contestants compete in aerobic wear rather than swimwear. Melissa Pocza captured this title after impressing the judges with her energy, confidence and, of course, fitness. Her defined arms and toned legs show just how dedicated she is to living a healthy lifestyle.

5. Mrs. South Africa First Princess 2018, Gela Le Roux

I can't get over Gela Le Roux's abs! The definition in her abs shows how much time she has spent in the gym working on her physique. It's important to remember that abs are also made in the kitchen, making Le Roux a perfect example of living a healthy lifestyle.

4. Mrs. New Jersey United States 2017, Jeannette Josue

I have no idea where to start when it comes to Jeannette Josue's figure! She defined nearly all aspects of her physique. You can tell how dedicated she is to fitness! A six-pack like Josue's requires countless hours in the gym and full dedication to healthy eating. Her six-pack is balanced out by her incredibly defined quads and muscular calves. Her power pose shows off all aspects of her physique.

3. Mrs. United States 2017, Lauren Ziegler

Lauren Ziegler became a national role model for married women when she was crowned Mrs. United States 2017. Her toned figure is just one of the many reasons she is deserving of this title. Her flat abs and defined calves show off her strength while still preserving her feminine curves. Her long, lean legs show that she is able to balance out her workouts in order to tone all parts of her physique.

Alice Lee Giannetta showed off her toned physique at the 2018 Mrs. World pageant where she represented Hong Kong and took home the crown. Every aspect of her figure is defined and shows that she has worked extremely hard to achieve this level of fitness. Her six-pack pops and should serve as inspiration for every pageant girl who wants killer abs. Her muscular legs and strong arms balance out her abs and make her overall physique cohesive. It's clear that Giannetta was able to target every muscle group during her preparation for Mrs. World.

Top 10 Swimsuit Bodies in the Ms. Division of 2017

10. Ms. Universe 2017, Tammy Caison

This Ms. contestant strutted her stuff in a one-piece on the way to the Ms. Universe 2017 title. Tammy Caison took the stage in a one-piece and showcased her toned arms and legs. Caison has great definition in her calves and shoulders. Caison stepped out in a unique, plunging, one-piece swimsuit for her swimsuit competition. The embellishment at Caison's mid-section pulls in the attention to the waist, her smallest section, and creates an hourglass figure. The large earrings and cuff bracelet make this look even more glamorous.

9. Ms. North America Globe 2017, Abby Hamdan

Abby Hamdan looks like a goddess on stage! She looks to be absolutely glowing and her beach waves make her look completely natural on stage. Her body is very well balanced and proportionate. I also love this unique swimsuit! It's really unusual to see mesh one-pieces on the pageant stage, but she looks phenomenal. This swimsuit pulls Hamdan in at the middle and accentuates her hourglass figure.

8. Ms. Elite United States WOA 2018, Candice Woods

Candice Woods definitely has one of best six-pack abs of the year. Woods' abs are so well-defined, but that's not the only muscle group that she worked to define. Woods' shoulders look strong and her arms and legs look long and lean. I also love this royal blue color on Woods' skin tone and against her blonde hair. Woods went with thin hoops, a thin bracelet and large beach curls to style this look. The jewelry matches perfectly with the details on her bikini top.

7. Ms. United States 2017, Toni Burnett

While this photo is from a runway instead of a pageant stage, it is clear that Toni Burnett puts a lot of work into maintaining a fit and healthy body. Burnett looks very modelesque as she works the runway. Her body is long and lean, perfect for rocking runways and pageant stages everywhere.

6. Ms. Earth United Kingdom 2017, Rubie Marie

Rubie Marie looks absolutely stunning in this swimsuit! Marie has very well-defined ab and arms muscles and her legs look long and lean. She looks confident and like she's having fun on stage. This suit is so incredibly unique. The yellow and turquoise colors contrast one another well and give a bright and fun air to Marie's swimsuit presentation. The turquoise appliqués match perfectly with her earrings and cape. Her updo hairstyle keeps this look clean, poised and elegant.

5. Ms. World International Supermodel 2017, Chloe New

Chloe New's title is a perfect fit for her because she definitely looks like a supermodel! New's arms and ab muscles look very lean and toned. She looks healthy and her body looks perfectly balanced. While I don't recommend a detailed pattern for the swimsuit competition, I'm loving this swimsuit on New. The red top pulls out the red details of the bottom and the navy bows on the sides of the bottoms are feminine and add even more detail to the suit.

4. Ms. Earth International 2017, Regina Bailey

Regina Bailey looks absolutely stunning and strong. Bailey put a lot of work into her abs and it definitely shows. This swimsuit shows off every well-defined muscle that Bailey has. Once again, while I'm not a fan of patterned swimsuits for competition, Bailey's suit looks absolutely phenomenal. The bright blues in the swimsuit's pattern complement Bailey's complexion beautifully. The half-up, half-down hairstyle with loose curls gives that "just off the beach" feel to the look.

3. International Ms. 2017, Lisa Van Orden

Lisa Van Orden put a lot of work into her fitness and it certainly shows! You can clearly see definition in her abs and shoulders. She looks strong and healthy, which is the whole purpose of the fitness competition. I just absolutely love the color of Van Orden's swimsuit! This color gives a twist to the traditional pageant swimsuit. This particular hue of purple provides a beautiful contrast to Van Orden's dark hair and her complexion.

2. Elite Miss Earth United States 2017, Adele Scala

Adele Scala certainly stood out on stage when she captured the Elite Miss Earth United States 2017 title last year. She looks very long and statuesque on stage. Her calve muscles are killer as she rocks the stage! Her pageant swimsuit is a little outside of the norm for pageant swimsuits in the best way. The purple hue is vibrant and complements her hair color nicely. The straps that wrap around her body on both the swimsuit top and bottom are trendy and fashion forward. They accentuate her hourglass figure and make her unique!

1. Ms. Galaxy 2018, Jessica Schiff

There is no surprise that this Texas beauty takes the top spot on our list! Jessica Schiff took the coveted international Ms. Galaxy title this year. It is apparent that she put a lot of hard work into her physique and it certainly paid off! Schiff looks long, lean and toned on stage. While her swimsuit is a pretty standard pageant swimsuit, it is embellished on the cups of the top and the sides of the bottoms. The vibrant red color perfectly complements her skin tone and makes her stand out on stage.

Another small figure on the Miss USA stage, Deshauna was all muscle and confidence and it worked in her favor.

She has a passion for health and fitness and frequently posts healthy recipes and her meals on her blog. Desi left no stone unturned when it came to her physique, her thighs, arms, abs and shoulders were on point and popped on stage. True body goals right here. She also shined in her state evening gown.

Although her actual muscle definition is softer than the other women on this list, we couldn't help but admire her extreme confidence and she graced the stage. Her curves and toned arms brought this look together. The time spent to eat right was proven with Chalita’s presentation during the swimsuit round.

6. Mrs. Europe Galaxy, Robyn Morrison Charlesworth

I absolutely love how Robyn embraced her feminine figure for her swimsuit portion of the competition. Not only do her legs have a very shapely tonality, but her hourglass figure still takes center stage. There is a soft and curvaceous outline to her shape. This curvy figure juxtaposes perfectly with her defined arms.

5. Mrs. Illinois International, Nicole Zwiercan

Nicole looked stunning on stage showcasing her washboard abs during the fitness portion of the competition. She already has a slender frame, but she obviously worked hard to create the tonality and muscle definition in the months leading up to her competition.

4. Mrs. Texas International, Kori Zwaagstra

Genetic build only goes so far when prepping a physique for a pageant. It takes dedication to healthy, nutritious foods paired with a workout, and Kori obviously did all of those things to get her slender frame into tip-top shape. Her fitness presentation is second to none!

3. Mrs. Oklahoma America, Beth Isbell

Blue is definitely Beth's color. This one-piece swimsuit accentuates her fit physique perfectly. Her long, lean legs showcase her tall stature, but also her tiny waist is shown in her perfect posing and stance. Talk about defined quads!

2. Ms. Galaxy, Rubia Bari

Rubia has the perfect balance between lean muscle and feminine curves. The red suit she chose definitely exemplified her figure perfectly as she strutted down the Ms. Galaxy stage. The crystal accents adorned throughout her swimsuit take her look to the next level.

1. Elite Miss Earth United States, Kristin Chucci

With defined abdominals and arms like that, there is no surprise Kristin came in at number one in the top 10. Quads, abs and toned shoulders? How much better can a swimsuit body get? The stark white swimsuit enhances her toned physique exceptionally well. Kristin was without a doubt the one to beat.

Top Pageant Swimsuit Bodies of 2015

13. Betty Cantrell, Miss America 2016

Starting off the list we have our reigning Miss America. Betty Cantrell looked beautiful this year on stage and presented a well-rounded, curvy, feminine body during swimsuit.

12. Hannah Roberts, Miss Mississippi 2015

Hannah was my favorite this year in the Miss America pageant for swimsuit because of her balance between lean muscle definition and feminine curves. She is both fit and sexy at the same time.

11. Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach, Miss Universe 2015

We can't forget about our newest Miss Universe. Controversy or not, Pia rocked the stage this year. She has an all-around beautiful package and is a great role model for a healthy body.

10. Ariadna Gutierrez, Miss Columbia 2015

Ariadna killed it on stage in her swimsuit. She has the perfect Latina body with sexy curves, hips and booty, but also a toned and fit upper body. She clearly put in a lot of work at the gym while getting ready for Miss Universe.

9. Mariana Jimenez, Miss Venezuela 2015

Mariana presented a similar physique this year with feminine, sexy legs, and toned abs and arms. These hips definitely don't lie! Mariana performed beautifully on stage and is a great example of balance between sexy and fit.

8. Monika Radulovic, Miss Australia 2015

Monika rocked it this year with her lean body. She has a smaller frame than other girls on this list, but she has maintained muscle mass and looks great on stage!

7. Clarissa Molina, Miss Dominican Republic 2015

Clarissa was one of my favorites this year mainly because of how cute she was on stage. This girl is adorable, not to mention her awesome body! Just like Monika, Clarissa has a smaller frame, but instead of looking too skinny she was able to build enough muscle to look toned and proportional.

6. Olivia Jordan, Miss USA 2015

I seriously cannot get enough of Olivia. She is by far the most conditioned and toned girl onstage at both Miss USA and Miss Universe. This girl has muscles for days. To get this fit, she must have worked incredibly hard in the gym in addition to following a strict diet. Believe me when I say that nobody is born with this body, and if you want to look like Olivia you have to put in a LOT of work.

5. Ylianna Guerra, Miss Texas USA 2015

The Miss USA contestants brought incredible packages to the stage this year. Ylianna is toned in all the right places. Just look at her abs!

4. Candice Marie Bennatt, Miss Louisiana USA 2015

Another awesome Miss USA contestant was Candice Bennatt, Miss Louisiana. She has sexy, full legs and a ripped stomach. She probably never skipped leg day!

3. Renee Wronecki, Miss Illinois USA 2015

Oh my quad! Renee's legs are the perfect example of what you should strive for at the gym. You can see her calves from her front pose, and her quads are straight muscle. Not to mention she crushed it in the midsection too.

2. Brittany McGowan, Miss Nevada USA 2015

Brittany is another example of a smaller frame with great conditioning. She is a great example of sexy, feminine lines, and still maintains a fit and fun look. Brittany also gets props for the best shoulders!

1. Anea Garcia, Miss Rhode Island USA 2015

Finally we have Anea. I love Anea's look because she presents a naturally skinny build with just enough muscle on top to fill her out a little. She is tall and slim without being too skinny. Anea is proof that it takes more than just a diet to get the perfect stage body.

Audra has always had an amazing body! From placing 1st Runner-up at Miss Teen USA in 2011 to 1st Runner-up at Miss USA this year her body has been close to pageant perfect. Tight abs, a great walk and the confidence that shines so brighter than the stage lights.

2. Victoria Cowen, Miss Florida 2014

Look at those legs! Victoria had the best legs at Miss America in my opinion.  Pair that with her flat abs and toned arms and it's no surprise that she won swimsuit during preliminaries and lands in the number 2 spot.

1. Nia Sanchez, Miss USA 2014

In my opinion, Nia has the perfect swimsuit body. The right mix between muscle and curves. Not to mention her tan is on point. I would love to have a body like her's!

I would like to drink the water down in Australia because these girls have the best bodies!  The surprise crowd favorite at Miss Universe, Miss Australia is definitely up there for the best pageant body, and she really showed the world when she competed in Vegas.

4. Miss Finland Universe

Finland is not the first country that comes to mind when you think sexy and fierce. However, Sara Chafak really brings the heat with her swimsuit body and shows us what toned and girly looks like.

3.  Miss Oklahoma

I don't know who her trainer is, but he/she knows what they are doing! Betty Thompson is in such great shape and perfectly lean that she looks so tall!  I know I bring up her height a lot, but she came to Miss America knowing exactly how to counter that. People take note!

2.  Miss New Hampshire USA

Ryanne Harms ruled swimsuit in a way most other girls can't.  Not only does she have a killer face, She is the poster child of being perfectly toned and curvy.  She is certainly a body type many women strive for!

Miss NH USA Swimsuit

1.  Miss New York

Kaitlin is another great example of keeping the curves while being super toned.  Monte must also have had a great trainer who focused on keeping a feminine look while keeping the body lean as well.  I have to say she takes the cake of 2012 for a great swimsuit body, and not to mention swimsuit walk!
