Tyra Banks

America's favorite top model Tyra Banks showed off her fuller curves while enjoying a poolside day with longtime boyfriend, John Uthendahl, yesterday.

Tyra Banks, one of the world's most successful supermodels, proved once again that she can still make heads turn with her banging body as she flaunted her curves in a skimpy purple bikini.

Earlier this week, the sexy Banks was spotted in a tiny purple bikini enjoying romantic vacations with her boyfriend.

Though Tyra Banks showed off a much fuller figure yesterday than usual, she appeared to have relaxed attitude. While her peers, Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, were enjoying wedding celebrations, Tyra preferred spending holiday weekend south of the border with banker boyfriend John Uthendahl.

The model-turned-host, who once measured the perfect 35-23-35, confidently showcased her voluptuous curves in her bandeau two-piece as she enjoyed a dip in a Jacuzzi in Mexico with her lover.

While enjoying poolside on July 2, the 37-year-old star had to readjust her tiny bikini to avoid any embarrassing slip up. Tyra Banks and John, who have been dating for several years, splashed in pool and sunbathed in front of their luxurious accommodations.

Over the years, Tyra Banks has been criticized for gaining weight. In 2006, she faced media fire for her fuller figure after photos of her in bathing suit appeared on the cover of several magazines.

In defense of her curvaceous body, Tyra Banks later addressed the issue on her own talk show, "The Tyra Show". On her show, she slammed her critics saying, "To all of you who have something nasty to say to me or to women built like me. I have one thing to say to you: Kiss my fat a**!"

Recently, Tyra Banks talked about her fluctuating weight and revealed that her weight has fluctuated between 148 and 162 pounds since she quit modeling in 2005.

Besides a break from modeling career, some personal life issues of the star could also have attributed to her fluctuating weight. Along with a busy work schedule, Tyra Banks has been dealing with upsetting legal problems relating to a mentally unstable stalker, Marten Williams Jr.

The holiday trip to Mexico with longtime beau came just after Tyra Banks was named as one of the lucky nominees to win a surfboard at the 2011 Teen Choice Awards. Banks is competing for Choice TV Personality against Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine of "The Voice", as well as Ryan Seacrest and Jennifer Lopez of "American Idol" stardom. The winner will be announced on 7th August.
