6 Totally Reasonable Posing Ideas to Steal from the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special



Tonight, CBS aired the second annual Victoria’s Secret Swim Special, an hour-long showcase featuring 13 Angels, dozens of bikinis, and a guest appearance from Nick Jonas—and, well, it was definitely something.

Over the course of the 60 minutes, we learned fun facts from the girls such as, “I’ve always loved taking sexy photos” (Elsa Hosk, I believe), and important tips for aspiring swimsuit models such as, “The most important part is the connection with the photographer.” (Thanks, Sara Sampaio! I’m sure that’s all there is to it.) We also got to watch them dance awkwardly on the beach, which is always a treat.

One unexpected bonus to the show? It was chock-full of posing ideas we’re totally going to put to use on our next tropical vacation. And just in time for Spring Break! Hey, anything for the ’Gram, right?

First off, you’re going to want to get comfortable.

Close your eyes so they know you really mean it.

Don’t want to get your hair wet? No problem.

Grab your bestie and make like sexy lionesses. (Yes, lionesses. Just go with it. It’s Victoria’s Secret world—everything can and should be “sexy.”)

Try not to fight over who gets to be little spoon.

And if anyone stares, just tell them you’re doing yoga.
