Swimsuit season is here!

And when a viewer named Tacara -- who recently lost 100 pounds (!) -- came to us for help in finding the perfect bathing suit for her new body, we knew exactly who to call:

Former Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl Paulina Porizkova, of course!

"She's never worn a bikini in her life," Paulina says of Tacara. "Ever."
