Bailon, 29, was one of a half-dozen celebrities to hit the 120-foot-long two-lane pool set up by sponsor Procter & Gamble in New York City’s Herald Square.
Bailon stripped down to a low-cut one-piece black bathingsuit that more than exposed her ample cleavage. She was joined by “Twilight” star Nikki Reed and Lenay Dunn, host of the “MTV 10 on Top” show.
“Today” news anchor Natalie Morales opened her robe to show off her toned body in a patterned swimsuit, while “Jersey Shore’s” Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, kept her clothes on. (What a role reversal!)
Celebs Swim for Superstorm Sandy Relief

Nyad, 64, was coming off her record-setting swim from Cuba to Florida last month. She covered the 110-mile distance in 53 hours. She pledged to swim in the Herald Square pool for 48 hours straight to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief.
The proceeds will go to AmeriCares to help some 25,000 people who still haven’t been able to return to their homes a year after the superstorm smashed the New York and New Jersey coastlines.
“In Cuba there was this huge emotional pressure,” Nyad told Reuters. “That was about setting a record. That was about ego. This is about other people.”
New York City police officers and fire fighters as well as U.S. Coast Guard sailors also took turns yesterday (Oct. 8), swimming laps with Nyad.
Olympic Gold medalist Ryan Lochte also took a turn in the pool, while Joe Manganiello, of HBO’s “True Blood,” lent his moral support.
Celebrities avoided bikinis but Bailon managed to still raise eyebrows in her too tight black one-piece. She used to date Rob Kardashian, so maybe she was taking a cue from sister Kim Kardashian.
