These hotties ensured the temperatures did not dip this year.
We saw some bold, sexy, beautiful bikini bods in 2016.
If Kim surprised her fans in a white monokini, Irina made jaws drop in a topless swimsuit for Swimsuit Illustrated. And then there was Bella who donned a two-piece in denims.
It's time we looked back at those stunning pictures once again and found out who took the cake.
Scroll down and vote for the sexiest bikini beauty.
