It’s been close to two decades since Baywatch ended but the iconic red swimsuit is still being worn by Pamela Anderson from time to time! The 52 year old actress revealed that she still puts it on sometimes, just to surprise her love interests!
That’s right! The one-piece not only still fits her like a glove but it also still has its use, although only in the bedroom.
While talking about the show and the beach fashion she made famous, Pamela told The New York Times that ‘I jump in the shower with a bathing suit and then jump on them wherever they are in the house, soaking wet.’
She went on to reveal that fans sometimes ask her to sign similar red bathing suits but that they are quite oversized compared to the tiny one she was wearing for the show.
‘Some people bring me bathing suits to sign autographs on and they are these big bathing suits and I say, ‘Listen, my bathing suit was tiny. It just stretched and pulled onto your body,’’ she recalled.
Other Baywatch stars also remembered the hot piece of clothing which definitely played a big role in beach fashion, influencing and inspiring swimwear styles since.
Carmen Electra has the bathing suit framed at home and it’s a great conversation piece since guests are always excited to see it.
Furthermore, she also had a fun story to tell. According to her, she rushed from the Singled Out set to read for the role of Lani McKenzie with David Hasselhoff which means that she had no time to shave her legs but had to wear the suit.
Electra ended up auditioning like that, hoping no one would notice.
In the meantime, Nicole Eggert who played Summer Quinn, said that the red piece made her feel ‘proud and powerful.’
