TOP 10 Miss Universe 2017 Swimwear Preliminary Competition

Miss Universe preliminary competition was held on November 20th at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. The finals and the coronation will take place on November 26, 2017, which coincides with American Thanksgiving! How lucky would she be.

Swimsuit competition is one of the most exciting presentations in the competition because everyone can evaluate the contestants based on the definition of their frames and their self-confidence, especially when they are in the scrutiny of the public eye. It sends a significant impression to the judges and the audience on how well each of the contestants prepared themselves physically, mentally and emotionally towards their journey to Miss Universe crown. In short, swimsuit emanates confidence and grace of the wearer.

Please keep in mind that the TOP TEN was based on the performance of the preliminary LIVE competition. All contestants were confidently beautiful in their Yamamay swimwear and Chinese Laundry footwear.
