There is no doubt that Miss Supranational is very much focused on the swimsuit contest and this is very evident during the finals night when a lingeria focus segment is one of the highlights. Naturally, the swimsuit prelims plays a crucial role in determining the outcome of the pageant.

During the prelims, jaws were dropped when Miss Myanmar Swe Zin Htet, a young and slender 17 year-old beauty showed off her figure. She’s got a heavenly body although her she’s got a rather okay-ish walk. Miss Indonesia Intan Aletrino meanwhile displayed an equally stunning figure.

Miss Peru Silvana Vasquez Monier and Miss Panama Leydis Maybeth Gonzalez were both oozing with confidence. Another stand-out is Miss Mexico Cynthia de la Vega who appeared effortlessly glamorous. Miss Australia Silka Kurzak is simply fresh in aura and in her walk while Miss Ecuador Maria Isabel Pineyro offered a sensual yet polished walk.

Miss Costa Rica Paola Chacon displayed good stage presence along with Miss India Srinidhi Shetty who is just excellent in the catwalk.

Miss Brazil Cloris Ioanna Junges is one of the contestants who possesses a phenomenal body. Another noteworthy contestant is Miss Czech Republic Michaela Havova whose leggy physique makes her a contender for the semis. Miss Paraguay Viviana Florentin has a well-proportioned body and she definitely aced the catwalk.

Miss Philippines Joanna Eden is flawless and very much well-trained while Miss Poland Ewa Mielnicka is very poised. Miss Venezuela Valeria Vespoli also displayed great catwalk and she’s got the right curves at the right places.

There is a mixed reaction with Miss Russia Vlada Gritsenko but there is a consensus that she looks wonderful in her mile-long leg.

Unfortunately so many girls have great bodies but failed to deliver in the catwalk and some overemphasized their moves and poses. Nevertheless, majority of ladies knows what works in the swimsuit department – it’s not all about the body but it also how you present it on the catwalk.
