The Sports Illustrated 2015 Swimsuit cover is set to debut on February 9. With less than a week until the launch, we wanted to revisit the lovely ladies that graced the pages in 2014.

In case you need some motivation to get bikini body ready a little early this year, we rounded up 10 of our favorite SI models.
