New mom Snooki is a sight for “shore” eyes.
Since dropping more than 40 pounds of baby weight after giving birth to son Lorenzo last August, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has been keen to show off her hot body.
In new photos she posted on Instagram, the petite reality TV star, with her auburn curls and trademark heels, poses in jungle-print swimsuits that show off her trim physique.
“Beach body ready!” Polizzi captioned her sexy pics.
Polizzi, 25, appeared on The Dr. Oz Show in an interview airing Monday to share her weight loss tips.
Now weighing in at 109 lbs., the former Jersey Shore star, who breastfed her son, said that she considers herself a regular girl whose life is in the spotlight.
“If I can lose 42 lbs. after giving birth six months [ago], I mean, anybody could do it,” she says. “You just need the dedication, and you need to want to have your body back.”
