Jennifer Lopez/Instagram

Life isn't fair, and Jennifer Lopez is proof of that. J.Lo has somehow found the magic recipe for staying youthful decade after decade and still turns heads with everything she wears--especially bikinis. Jen has shared some sexy and sizzling photos of herself wearing some gorgeous bathing suits, and there's no denying that she looks absolutely amazing in any bikini she wears!

When the singer turned 49, she shared a photo of herself in a bikini at the beach during her birthday vacation and everyone was in disbelief. Her abs looked better than ever, her arms and legs were as toned and sculpted as we've ever seen them while the rest of her body was still curvy. The Shades of Blue actress is the definition of discipline and she's proof that self-care pays off in the long run. She's been an athlete and a dancer since she was a teenager and the results of a lifetime of exercise are so clear.

It goes without saying that Jen also has the means to eat healthfully and hire the best trainers around, but no money can buy the dedication it takes to stick to a balanced lifestyle day after day. When she first became famous, she received a lot of attention for her curves and she revealed she also got plenty of flak from people in the industry. "They'd say, 'You should lose a few pounds,' or 'You should do this or do that.' It finally got to the point that I was like, 'This is who I am. I'm shaped like this,'" she told InStyle in May 2018. "Everybody I grew up with looked like that, and they were all beautiful to me. I didn't see anything wrong with it. I still don't!"

Her incredible confidence and being proud of her Puerto Rican genes has helped a lot of women and Latinas around the world love who they are. "So many people have come up to me over the years--famous people, people I meet on the street, fans, everybody--and they say that very thing: 'Thank you so much. I have the same type of body. I used to think I was fat, but now I feel beautiful,'" she told the magazine. "I wasn't really trying to send a message. I was just being myself."

We are so proud of J.Lo for staying true to herself all while inspiring us to love our bodies exactly as they are and also motivating us to treat our bodies with love and lead healthier lives. So now take a look at some of Jen's most jaw-dropping and sexiest bathing suit pics through the years--and you'll see there's no doubt that she knows just how to turn up the heat.
