Chrissy Teigen is shutting down the haters with her latest bikini photo.

The mommy-to-be stripped down to an itsy bitsy two-piece for the new Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, the seventh time she's graced the pages of their special issue. Teigen sailed off to Zanzibar, the Tanzanian archipelago off the coast of East Africa, for the shoot.

"I am proud to be in the issue but SO proud of all the work you guys put into this every single year," she gushed. "I just love you all."

In one hot shot from the spread, Teigen looks radiant as she flashes a glowing smile while wearing a straw hat and a bunch of silver arm bracelets that extend up her arms. Even more pronounced? That black bikini, which Teigen suggestively yanks on.

Teigen is careful not to reveal too much, though -- in both photos she has her arms wrapped around her chest.

In the caption for the nearly nude spread, the 30-year-old model happily thanked SI for their support. "I had to count that a million times before I believed it!" she wrote. "My @si_swimsuit family, I love you! There is nothing like being a part of this brand and this issue."

Hey, gotta save a little somethin' somethin' for John, right?

After posting the photos on her personal Instagram account on Monday, Teigen admitted to reading her followers' (not always nice) comments. "Shoutout to everyone dissecting every little part of my bod in the last comment thread," she wrote. "You're all really wonderful, kind, flawless beauties -- I can tell from your pages!!"

Teigen, who is expecting her first child with husband John Legend, has experienced a lot of body shaming since announcing her pregnancy last October.
