Is a LeAnn Rimes Bikini Collection in the Works? 'I Hope That it Comes to Fruition!'

08/04/2014 at 02:27 PM ET

Almost no one knows more about wearing a bikini than Leann Rimes. She’s almost made lounging on yacht decks and hitting the beach a part-time job. But the singer isn’t just having fun seaside — she’s also getting tons of two-piece-related practical research and user experience, and now, she says, she’d like to put it to good use by creating her own bikini line.

In an interview with Fox 411 (in which she says she can be “redneck with the best of them,” among other things), Rimes is asked whether she’s ever considered starting her own bikini line. “Yes, I have! And I’ve been researching that a little bit more as we speak,” she says. “I’ve worn so many bikinis that I know what works and what doesn’t. I know what I like and I know what’s missing in the marketplace. We shall see! I hope that it comes to fruition.”

And she’s willing to admit that she may have a bit of a bikini overload in her closet — she says she can’t even guess at the number she owns, a problem she compares to her shoe addiction. “The other day, I said I had 80 pairs of shoes and Eddie was like, “No way. You have at least 140 pairs of shoes,” she says. “I started counting and I told him, ‘Babe, I stopped counting at 200.’ That’s pretty much the same thing with bikinis. I’d like to say that I don’t have a ton, but I know I do.”

What can we expect from a Rimes-designed bikini line? “I don’t know. I’m an earthly girl. I love very natural colors — nudes and golds. Beautiful, feminine and classy,” she tells the site, adding, “I think the biggest misconception about bikinis is that if you’re heavier, that you need to wear more coverage on your butt. It looks horrible on any woman. The skimpier the bottoms, the better your butt looks! If you look at pictures of women with bikinis that cover the whole butt, it just looks frumpy. Flaunt what you’ve got!”

We think she may have a potential name for her bikini line right there. Would you shop a Leann Rimes swimwear line? Any advice you’d like to share with the star?

Not a chance.

Ew she’s way too skinny and it makes her fake boobs look even worse than they normally do. And no I wouldn’t buy a bikini of hers, I’m not a fan of her style in anything I’ve seen her wearing. :)

I would buy one from her especially if my body looked like her’s. People need to remember it does take two to make a marriage so obviously old trashy Brandi wasn’t woman enough to keep her man at home and its past time to stop hating LeAnn. Keep it real! People

I would buy her bikinis. I wouldn’t want people judging me for past mistakes or for whatever reason. So, why should I?! I just don’t get all the hate. People act as though they personally know her.

I love this bikini. Where can I find it?

Camie on

Aww, the classic BS statement blaming the wife. How cute that “os” thinks Eddie’s never cheated on LeAnn.

Anna M on

Yes, absolutely I would purchase a bathing suit. If I liked the color and fit, of course.
Look……people have the right to go on with their life. My lord, if I were held accountable for every incorrect decision, questionable choice or poor choice I made in my life and judged by the public for years and years….I would not be able to get out of bed. For those of you who make negative comments…..don’t throw stones because I do not know one perfect person out there. I cannot judge another person’s personal life and who knows what Eddie’s life was like behind closed doors with his ex.
Good for you LeAnn for moving on and developing a line of clothing. Lots of good luck and much success!

I wear underwear, socks and a bra everyday, I guess I will design my own line too.

does anyone really care what that homewreaker Rimes says, or does?Throw her and the Krudashians into the nearest garbage dump.

Eddie has been cheating on Leann since they were married. He is only staying with her for the $$$. He finds her repulsive and is banging other women.
