Deena Nicole Cortese

Wow. Looks like Snooki isn't the only Jersey Shore gal with a pretty bangin' beach body this summer. Her old roomie Deena Nicole Cortese tweeted a photo of her itty-bitty yellow bikini -- and it's obvious that she's proud of her thinner figure and wants everyone else to freak out over it too.

And I guess we can't really blame her for putting a sexy "selfie" out there, but something about the pic she chose to share just seems a little, well, on the attention hungry side.

Here it is -- what do you make of this shot?

Exactly. She's fishing for a compliment or two. And while she does look great -- the angle of this particular photo definitely gives her a leg up on appearing slim and trim. I mean, who doesn't look better in a bikini lying down versus standing upright or sitting?

When gravity is working in your favor, it tends to make everything (almost everything) appear flatter and more sucked in -- which is why so many of us take off our bathing suit coverups and shimmy onto the lounge chair to get into a horizontal position as quickly as possible at the pool or beach.

But considering Deena was chillin' by her boyfriend's pool when this shot was taken, why did she feel the need to share it? He obviously knows she looks good, so why does Twitter need to join the party? Huh. I wonder if all of the super-skinny photos Snooki's been posting lately are making her feel left out? That would explain this pic for sure. On that note, I guess putting this photo out there to prove she's not the only one with a smokin' hot bod is as good an excuse as any.

What do you think of Deena's bikini body?
