July is the middle of the summer. It is known as a month that brings tremendous heat to a lot of places around the Northern Hemisphere. The hot weather brings about tiny bikinis and women who showcase a healthy amount of skin. The beautiful women hit the streets and the beaches in droves and bring out their very best. It is a time when everyone is on vacation and looking for fun in the sun. July also kicks off a fun time with the 4th of July in the United States. It’s a fun time to drink, barbecue, and hang by the pool. It also used to be a time when Playboy showcased beautiful naked female figures but that time has passed. In fact, the company has lost quite a bit of lustre of late with the many changes that have been going on. Everyone knows that Playboy is putting clothes back on women these days. Now the hallways of the famed Playboy Mansion will not be filled with the footsteps of Hugh Hefner. Times are definitely changing.
But Playboy has a rich history of amazing looking women. It is difficult to remember every great cover over the years, but we certainly can’t forget some of the most beautiful women of the world who have adorned this fabled cover. We have painstakingly gone through and pulled some of the greatest looking photos from Playboy’s July Bunnies to find the 15 best. These are the 15 most beautiful women to grace July’s cover.
