It is one of the most popular swimsuits on the market due to it's very sexy high cut.
And who better than to model a Brazilian bikini than a stunning Brazilian supermodel.
Raica Oliveira flew the flag for her home country during a Victoria's Secret photo shoot in Oahu, Hawaii, last weekend.
The 29-year-old, who hails from Rio De Janeiro, displayed her perfect ten figure in a patriotic yellow and green strapless suit which highlighted her pert derriere.
Billowing in the wind was a Brazilian flag, which Raica proudly held in the air.
The super tanned stunner had her brunette tresses styled in a braid and boosted her already statuesque height with a pair of nude wedges.
Raica also modelled a skimpy patterned two-piece
Raica's green and gold was not the only swimsuit the beautiful brunette modelled.
The five foot eleven beauty slipped into a wide range of Brazilian bikinis, including a skimpy pattern two-piece, a printed halterneck design and several mismatched sets.
At one point Raica did somewhat cover up her impossibly perfect behind in a high waisted pink and purple bikini.
Raica was seen leaning against a palm tree during the shoot
While she is not as well known as Victoria's Secret Angels Alessandra Ambrosio, Candice Swanepoel or Adriana Lima, Raica has been somewhat of a stablemate for the lingerie giant.
She was featured in the brand's campaign in 2009, and she appeared in their swimsuit catolouge in 2005.
Raica is also the face of Ultimo after replacing British model Kelly Brook in 2010.
Raica was helped by an equally tanned assistant on the set
It was announced in 2010 that Brook would be leaving UItimo just months after agreeing a six-figure deal with the brand.
Having previously modelled for companies including Dior, Dolce & Gabanna and Yves Saint Laurent, Raica isn't a stranger to the industry.
And while she is happy to pose in her underwear, she has drawn the line at ever posing nude.
She once said: 'I could not pose nude. Nothing against those who do, but I never felt right about it. It's not something that would make me proud.'
Raica is also more than a little familiar with the celebrity world, having dated footballer Cristiano Ronaldo in 2006.
