Behati Prinsloo is ''embarrassed'' by her swimwear collection.

The Victoria's Secret model has confessed to being a ''total bikini hoarder'' but insists she still wears the same two pieces every time she hits the beach.

She explained: ''I don't remember the very first one I bought. I kind of grew up on a beach so it was always around. And I'm a total bikini hoarder - it's a little embarrassing how many bikinis I own, and that I only wear the same two bikinis always.''

The Namibian-born beauty, 25 - who stars on the cover of Victoria's Secret's latest swimsuit catalogue in a cut-out black design from the label's Very Sexy collection - loved the ''magical'' Hawaiian shoot with photographer Greg Kadel.

She said: ''It was that magical time of day just before sunset in Hawaii, I remember it being so beautiful.

''I also love how sexy and different that bikini is. Everyone needs this bikini. You'll turn some heads on the beach.''

However, Behati's favourite bikini from the lingerie giant's new line is a monochrome neoprene creation which is perfect for beach activities.

She told People magazine: ''My favourite suit right now is the Victoria's Secret Beach Sexy teeny triangle top with the neoprene string bottom. It's perfect to play beach volleyball or surf in.''
