Curvy Queen Latifah busts out of an unflattering swimsuit during beach day out in Barbados

Life's a beach: Queen Latifah was spotted enjoying the sun and surf on Friday during a holiday in Barbados

She was once a spokeswoman for Jenny Craig, but from the looks of things, Queen Latifah may have fallen off of the weight loss wagon.

The Grammy award winner and Oscar-nominated actress was spotted enjoying the sun and surf yesterday on a beach in Barbados.

With her hair pulled back into a ponytail, the rapper-turned-actress proudly strutted around the sand in a plunging blue one piece.

However, the ill-fitting swimsuit struggled to contain the buxom beauty's ample curves.

Still, the 41-year-old appeared to be having a wonderful time, as she smiled and frolicked in the water.

In 2008, Latifah was enlisted as a spokeswoman for the weight loss program Jenny Craig.

The statuesque star has made it clear that her intention was never to be stick thin, but to improve her health.

While promoting the weight loss program she said: 'I don’t want to be skinny.

'I had read that if you lost five percent of your body weight, you could cut your chances of things like heart disease in half. Jenny Craig mentioned the same statistic to me, so we connected on a health level.'

In January 2009, Jenny Craig released a statement praising Latifah for 'successfully losing 20 pounds and dropping 20 cholesterol points.'

The statement went on to say: 'Queen Latifah embodies the healthy lifestyle principles and character that Jenny Craig stands for and we look forward to another great year.'

In addition to her music and acting careers, the New Jersey native is a spokesperson for CoverGirl cosmetics and has her own line of cosmetics for women of colour called the CoverGirl Queen Collection.

She is also a spokesman for Curvation ladies underwear and she co-owns a film production company called Flavor Unit Entertainment.

The company has produced a string of comedies including Beauty Shop, The Cookout, The Perfect Holiday and Just Wright.
