Jordin Sparks Shows Off Slim Bikini Body in Bathing Suit from Mid '90s (Seriously!)

Updated

Jordin Sparks has some serious bikini body confidence (and she’s earned it!). The singer flaunted her toned figure Saturday at Tao’s beach season opening in Las Vegas, wearing a throwback striped swimsuit and belly chain that accentuated her abs.

“BIG step for me to wear something like this on a carpet. Yeah, yeah, yeah I know it was for a pool party…but for ME, this was HUGE,” she shared on Instagram. “I’m still learning more about my health & body confidence everyday! I always want to keep growing! Some of the pics might look crazy & that’s okay! Will there be some unflattering angles? Yeah. Will I have some jiggle here, some flab there? YUP. Am I continuously working to be fit & healthy? SURE AM! I’ve come a long way from where I was! I love my life! I love who I am & who I’m becoming!! One step at a time…”

And if you want to get your hands on the star’s green-striped bathing suit and matching mini sarong, good luck. It’s almost 20 years old. “This bathing suit is Pan Dulce from the mid ’90s,” Sparks added. “My parents owned a tanning salon for a bit & when they closed it, I kept all the extra suits. They didn’t fit me then but they sure do now! I JUST took the tag off of this one today!! Wedges: @louboutinworld Sunglasses: @lindafarrow ultimate cat-eye. In LOVE with these!.”

There might be wedding bells (and maybe another mid-’90s bikini for the bachelorette party?) in the near future for Sparks, who has been very open about her relationship with Jason Derulo. “I’m so proud of my baby and what he’s accomplished,” Sparks, 24, told PEOPLE recently. “I’ve been with him every step of the way and I’m so proud to be here tonight.”
