'Sports Illustrated' Model Erin Willerton Smolders In Skimpy Thong Bikini, While Vacationing In Greece

Erin Willerton is taking some much-deserved time off after having an eventful first semester this year, marked by her spread in the 2019 Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition, and earning her Philosophy degree from the University of Manchester. On Thursday, the swimsuit model took to her Instagram page to share a sultry snapshot in which she donned a skimpy bikini bottom that left almost nothing to the imagination.

In the photo, the 22-year-old British bombshell was posing in front of a swimming pool in Mykonos — as the geotag she included with her post indicates — as she rocked an aquamarine two-piece bikini that consisted of a straight-cut top with two thin straps that went over the model's shoulders. Willerton teamed her top with a matching light blue thong-cut bottom that sat high on her frame, which helped increase the contrast between her wide hips and slender waist, while also putting her derriere on full display. According to the tag paired with the photo, the swimsuit she was wearing was by Livin Cool.

Willerton — who was a finalist in last year's SI Swim Search — was posing with her back and left side to the camera as she stood with one leg propped in front of the other, in a pose that put her backside front and center.

Willerton had her head turned to the left, but her eyes were closed and she was flashing a spontaneous smile, as if the camera has snapped the photo a second too soon. Her brunette tresses were swept over to one side and down in loose, natural waves that cascaded over her right shoulder and onto her chest. The model appeared to be wearing little-to-no makeup on her face, embracing a more natural, fresh look.

The photo, which Willerton shared with her almost 300,000 Instagram followers, garnered more than 5,000 likes and upwards of 40 comments within just a few hours of being posted, as of the time of this writing. Users of the popular social media platform, who are fans of the swimsuit model, took to the comments section to offer their opinion about the sultry snapshot, and to share their admiration for Willerton and her looks.

"So incredibly beautiful and gorgeous," one user wrote, trailing the comment with a series of heart eyes emoji.

"Beautiful in blue," another fan raved, following the message with a red heart emoji.

"As always you are the definition of the most beautiful lady ever," a third fan chimed in.
