Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model search finalist Raine Michaels has become quite popular on social media ever since her first bikini photo shoot was posted online, largely thanks to her amazing assets and stunning looks.
Titillating her fans again, the 18-year-old stunner recently shared a picture from the magazine’s photo shoot — one which became an instant hit among her fans.
In this snap, Raine could be seen donning a blue Celeste bikini that left little to the imagination, as it could barely contain the model’s enviable breasts. The bikini also allowed the model to put her stomach and thighs on full display. She stood half submerged in the sea, and struck a pose for the sizzling picture.
In terms of her aesthetics, she wore minimal makeup to pull off a very beachy look, and she let her blond tresses down to exude sexy vibes. Per the geotag, the pic was captured in the Bahamas. In the attached caption, Raine thanked Sports Illustrated for making her dreams come true in giving her the opportunity to model for the magazine. She said that she feels honored to be featured in the same magazine where models like Tyra Banks, Camille Kostek, and Alex Morgan have made their mark.
She also gave a shoutout to her fellow swimsuit search finalists.
