Coco Austin doesn't care what you think. The curvaceous mom of one showed off her enviable figure in an impossibly tiny bikini on Instagram.

Her confident 6-year-old daughter, Chanel, wore a matching bikini while spending quality time with her mom at Bahaha Bay Water Park.

Coco captioned the images:

"People ask if we'll ever get sick of matching... the answer is no!! We both love it too much been doing since Chanel was born
-swipe."

She also tagged the designer of her and Chanel's bikinis - "by- @sugardollllz."

Coco's 3 million followers acknowledged that few 43-year-old women can fill out a bikini like she can.

Their reaction was a complete 360 from earlier this week.

Coco was slammed by Instagram followers after she posted a photo of an exhausted Chanel sitting in a baby stroller that was too small for her.

Coco captioned the image:

"A stroll through the @atlantisbahamas shops. Chanel is so over it unless theres something cool to see. Her face transitions instantly."

One person wrote: "Let her grow up."

Coco lashed out at her followers, writing:

"Oh lord!! Really people? The world loves to criticize literary [sic] everything i do! Isnt there a war & mass shootings going as we speak & you'd rather mess with my mothering? SMH."

Washington Mystics center Shakira Austin is among the WNBA rookies to watch this season.

Austin is a 6 ft 5 inch center but she plays more like a petite 5 ft 3 guard.

The 21-year-old budding star put up 13 points and grabbed 10 rebounds for the Mystics who handily defeated the Minnesota Lynx 78-66 on Sunday, May 8. Austin had her first double-double as a WNBA player in the game.

The Mystics (2-0) dressed only 8 players on Sunday. Star center Elena Delle Donne sat out the game.

Austin, from Fredericksburg, Virginia, played college ball at Maryland and Ole Miss. She was drafted third overall by Mystics in the 2022 WNBA draft last month.

WNBA players like Austin are more athletic on the court while displaying their femininity off the court.

In a tweet during the pandemic she wrote: "Yes I'm 6'5 wearing platforms ... real stallion baby."

WNBA fans have noticed the improvement, as more men are buying tickets to the games. The two games I watched over the weekend were nearly sold out.

Today's Morning Glory is entrepreneur Tai Eisley who founded Maison by Tai because she's a homebody who has a passion for fashion and home decor.

"We happily clothe our bodies in luxury, why not our home indulgences," she writes on her website.

"I'm responsible for setting the vibe in my house as many of you are well aware because I've invited you in for years sharing my recipes, floral experiences, cocktail concoctions as well as playlists.

"No I'm not a formally trained chef, florist, bartender or DJ, though I get requests like I am LOL. I just simply enjoy turning my passions into memorable experiences for everyone around me, including all of you."

What do you think of Tai's personal style?

But she also wrote: "No more talking stages... we're either dating or I'm single. Talk to God, not me..."

Do you have a chance to win Helen's heart? Probably not. It sounds like the 35-year-old video vixen is determined to discover herself. But you are welcome to admire her beauty and enviable figure.

The chunky caramel snack from Miami is the first plus-size model to walk the runway for standard size brands during NY Fashion Week. Her clients include Nordstrom, Forever21, Target, Old Navy, Macy's and more.

Bidot has been featured on television shows including nuvoTV's Curvy Girls, HBO's Habla Women, and Yahoo! web series Mama vs. Mama.

In 2016, a photo of her wearing a 2-piece bathing suit that showed off her stretch marks in Lane Bryant's new resort collection ad went viral.

Edit: This post was originally published on May 18, 2010. I bumped it back to the front page after several of my longtime readers pointed out that Keyshia Ka'oir was one of my Morning Glory models back in the day.

It seems Keyshia has come a long way from her hand-to-mouth days as a video vixen and high class escort.

John Legend's wife Chrissy Teigen once again covers the 2015 swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated magazine. The glorified swimsuit issue is SI's bread and butter. Without it, the magazine probably couldn't stay afloat (pun intended).

After the break is just a sampling of photos featuring the plus-sized model wearing skimpy bikinis in the 2015 swimsuit issue. Enjoy.
