Alessandra Ambrósio has expanded her Ále by Alessandra brand with a swimwear collection.

The Brazilian model - who is best known for her work with Victoria's Secret - has helped to design 75 different styles in both one-piece and two-piece separates, as well as coverups, all of which she says have been inspired by her ''Brazil-Bohemia-meets Malibu-Chic lifestyle''.

Reflecting on her new collection, the 33-year-old beauty explained: ''Being from Brazil I grew up spending a lot of time by the beach so it was only natural that my collection expends to swimwear.

''Brazilians are a bit more liberal with their swim choices, especially when it comes to cuts, so I incorporated both Brazilian and American cuts into this collection.''

Alessandra told PEOPLE: ''It is very important to feel comfortable while wearing swimwear, and that is why I incorporated many different shapes and very comfortable fabrics into this collection.

''I went one step further by making sure that the pieces are very durable and will last for years.''

Alessandra, who has two children with businessman Jamie Mazur - daughter Anja, six, and son Noah, two - also offered some fashion tips, saying it's important to ''find a swimsuit that works for your body shape''.

However, she said: ''There are a few pieces from Forever on Vacation, Palm Summer and Joshua Tree styles that are perfect for anyone.''
