Based on her most recent Instagram post, Hailey Clauson is reminiscing about her photoshoot for the 2019 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue.

Earlier this week, the swimsuit model took to the popular social media platform to share a snapshot in which she showed off her insane figure in a tiny bikini that left little to the imagination. In the photo, Clauson was kneeling in the sand during sunset, as streaks of natural light peeked through the rocks in the background.

Clauson rocked a striped two-piece bathing suit that consisted of a classic triangle top with thin straps that tied up behind her neck. The tiny top helped to accentuate the model’s cleavage. Clauson teamed her top with a pair of matching string bottoms that tied on the sides. The bottoms sat low on her frame, leaving her toned abs and itty bitty waist in full evidence. According to Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, the striped bikini Clauson was wearing in the photo is by In Your Arms.

The California native had her knees apart, in a pose that accentuated the natural curves of her body. Clauson was looking down in the photo with her lips slightly pursed. She wore her blond hair in a side part and styled down in large waves that fell toward her shoulders.

As Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue has noted, Clauson jetted off to Kangaroo Island in South Australia in October 2018 to shoot her spread for the 2019 issue. Her photos were captured by photographer Josie Clough. This year’s edition marked Clauson’s fifth year with the magazine, the report further detailed.

Clauson landed on the cover of the magazine in 2016. She was one of three models, including Ashley Graham and Ronda Rousey, to be featured on the cover that year.
