Serena Williams gets the finishing touches for her swimwear shot in Harper's Bazaar

*In the August issue of Harper’s Bazaar, 28-year-old Wimbledon champ Serena Williams says it took her two decades to accept that her body was never going to be as lean as her older sister Venus’.

“I’m super-curvy. I have big boobs and this massive butt. She’s tall and she’s like a model and she fits everything,” Serena told the fashion magazine.

The athlete said there was once a time when she could raid Venus’ closet.

“I was always fitting in her clothes, but then one day I couldn’t,” she said.

Since January, Serena has dropped from a size 12 to 10.

“I’ve been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won’t be bulky,” she told the magazine, adding that she never diets. “I don’t even know the D word.”

Though she considers her arms a little “too fit,” Williams revealed that she likes her smile best.

“I think a smile can make your whole body,” she told Bazaar. “Models, they look fabulous, but they don’t smile and they look so mad.”

That smile may have been what attracted rapper and actor Common. Williams was dating the “Just Wright” star until they broke up in May, reportedly over conflicting schedules.

“He didn’t want the responsibility,” Williams told Bazaar. “It’s really tough.”

In the above photo, Williams poses in a white Eres one-piece topped off with a Louise Brooks bob.

“I feel so much sexier with short hair,” said Serena. “I wanted to reach inside me and feel better. I don’t want to hide behind a facade of hair.”
