MANjr created this list of the top 25 bikini babes of all time based on a scientific scale that considered the following factors: bangin’ body, bikini skills, cuteness of face and overall hotness. If you disagree with these picks, let us know where our scientific method went wrong. We probably won’t make any adjustments, but we’ll try to recognize any glaring omissions.

25. Jessica Alba

She’s always going to make the list, even if she doesn’t want to be considered sexy anymore. Sorry Jessica, you have no say in this.

24. Stacy Keibler

Stacy’s got the body to pull off any bikini in any situation. Kieblers was a WWE Diva, Baltimore Ravens cheerleader and a serious dancer (she started training when she was three), so she knows how to put those extra-long legs to good use.

23. Kelly Brook

Kelly Brook is no stranger to bikini work. The buxom Brit began modeling at the age of 16, and she’s appeared in TV, films and top sexy lists ever since. Brook, who won a babe of the summer award this year, even has her own line of swimwear and lingerie going, so you know she belongs on this list.

22. Tyra Banks

It’s hard to remember a time when Tyra Banks wasn’t super annoying. But think back, way back. Think back to guest appearances on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air and all those SI Swimsuit shoots. Remember? Yep, Tyra was hot. She wasn’t constantly calling herself fat and she didn’t have her own talk show. I miss that fly 90s chick who knew how to work a bikini and keep her mouth shut.

21. Shakara Ledard

A relative newcomer to the swimsuit scene, Shakara Ledard has made a big enough splash to hang with the all time greats. This beauty from the Bahamas has appeared in multiple films and music videos for usher, Babyface and Justin Timberlake.

20. Niki Taylor

Dude, remember how hot Niki Taylor was? This foxy chick from Florida started modeling when she was 13. She was a cover girl for a solid decade or so during which she married an Arena Football League linebacker and had twins. Taylor’s only 35 years old, and you know this blonde-haired, hazel-eyed head-turner’s still got it.

19. Stephanie Seymour

Stephanie Seymour was on top of her game in the 90s. The San Diego-native appeared in numerous Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues. She helped establish Victoria’s Secret mail catalogs as prized postal possessions, and she posed in Playboy in 1991 and 1993. Sadly, this still wasn’t enough to help Seymour survive her wedding to Axel Rose in the November Rain video. Everybody needs somebody, and we all need more Stephanie Seymour.

18. Elle Macpherson

Long legged Aussie beauty Elle MacPherson has been out of the spotlight for awhile, but her gorgeous bikini body still lives on, even at age 47. Total package bikini beauty like that doesn’t fade fast. If you ever find yourself wondering if there’s a Hugh Grant movie out there from the 90s that features a hilarious slow-motion nude running scene with Elle Macpherson, the answer is yes. It’s called Sirens.

17. Selita Ebanks

Cayman Islands native Selita Ebanks was discovered at a Six Flags when she was 17. What kinda crazy job would that be? Hey, before you ride the Ninja, I just wanted to say your gorgeous and I work for a modeling agency. I think I want that job. Ebanks was once engaged to Nick Cannon. As Maria Carey gets more chubby and/or pregnant with each passing day, Cannon can always reminisce about his old Victoria’s Secret fiancé and wonder what might have been.

16. Rachel Hunter

Rachel Hunter had it going on long before Fountains of Wayne reminded the world just how bangin’ she is in that Stacy’s Mom video. And when you look that good for that long, people get over the fact that you married Rod Stewart. I ain’t mad atcha Rachel. Not now and not ever.

15. Jessica Burciaga

SI Swimsuit gal she is not, but that doesn’t mean that Jessica doesn’t belong on this list. Her frequent Twitter profile pic updates and tales of 1000s of bikinis in her closet seal the deal. Miss February 2009 has a unique gorgeousness to her. Jessica’s father is Mexican her mother is French, Irish and German. When you have the chance, please thank Jessica’s parents for creating one amazingly stunning bikini babe.
