In case you missed it, the Miss Universe Philippines 2022 pageant is officially underway! Only a couple of months after Bea Gomez's Top 5 finish on the international stage, the hunt for her successor is already on.
Just last week, the candidates flashed their best faces for the Headshot Challenge. Following that up is the much-anticipated Swimsuit Challenge, where all 50 girls ushered in the sunny season with colorful and sultry bikini looks. Below, in no particular order, we list down 10 of our top picks.
LOOK: Top 10 Best Swimsuits from Miss Universe Philippines 2022
1. Ivylou Corpuz Borbon, Pangasinan
This minty green maillot looked so fresh on Ivylou. The sheer panel on the Pangasinan rep's swimmie makes for a clever pseudo cutout detail in case you don't want to bare too much skin.
2. Kevyn Alessandrea Mateo, Bataan
Kevyn went for a halter swimmie in a sweet tangerine hue that has potential even when she's off the beach. Imagine this tucked in a cute pair of jeans, and she's ready to run errands or have brunch!
3. Shaira Aliyah Diaz, San Pablo, Laguna
Also a stunner in orange was Shaira, who slipped into an adorable two-piece with a tied-up ribbon detail on its top.
4. Chantal Elise Legaspi Schmidt, Cebu City
Chantal is making us want to go on a vacay with this nautical-themed triangle bikini. The knotted-up details and striped print totally goes with the seaside motif.
5. Angelica Lopez, Palawan
This teal and gray maillot was a work of art on Angelica. Its one-shoulder strap and tummy cut-out highlighted the Palawan native's toned physique.
6. Celeste Cortesi, Pasay
Celeste turned up the heat in this strappy red bikini by Boom Sason. The cut-out on her top showcased the tattoo situated in the center of her chest (we also spot one on her right arm)!
7. Ma. Katrina Llegado, Taguig
Standing out from all of the solid toned swimmies was Katrina, who donned a gold, reptilian-print maillot with a strappy waist detail.
8. Francheska Alexine Licanto Dadivas, Roxas City
Francheska made a splash in this bustier bikini top that delightfully featured summery tones.
9. Marinel Timoteo Tungol, Arayat, Pampanga
Marinel proved that one can still look sultry even with a little bit more coverage. This fuchsia-hued one-shoulder piece, coordinated with her tassel earrings, was a simple yet gorgeous look.
10. Pauline Cucharo Amelinckx, Bohol
Pauline is back for another shot at the crown, and she's making a strong case for it with this green halter two-piece, which had straps that cinched in her waist.
