And while the Modern Family actress appears to like bustiers and lace in the boudoir, she says she prefers even less clothing on the beach.
"I was like, What is that? It's like a diaper," the Colombia-native tells the magazine about the first time she saw a two piece bathing suit here in the U.S. "It's terrible. Who can look good in that? When I moved to the United States, I used to have bathing suits brought up from Colombia."
"There's nothing slutty about a dental-floss bikini," she continues. "You don't even think about it. The first bathing suit your mother buys you is in the shape of a triangle."
No stranger to wearing curve-hugging attire day and night, the 39-year-old is a seasoned pro at being one lust-worthy Latina. But unbeknownst to her admires, it has nothing to do with wearing lingerie or a g-string.
"In Colombia everybody's very voluptuous and you're supposed to be," the actress, who, as Esquire points out refers to her breasts as "ridiculously huge," says about loving her figure. "You don't want to be skinny when all of your cousins are mermaids. You grow up thinking that's how beauty is."
