Finding that Perfect Suit

On avoiding the "four butts" when swimsuit shopping: 
"Because I'm so active, it's walking that fine line where the elastic is tight enough but not too tight where it gives you four butts. I don't like high-cut stuff. I don't like the butt being too big. And I'm tiny up top, so I don't really have any issues. If there's padding in there, I'll probably buy it!"

If she's not playing volleyball on the coast, she's... 
"Just hanging out on the beach. Some of my favorite times are when we go with a group of friends and play Tuesday night volleyball."

On the likelihood you'll find Kerri sitting still on the beach: 
It depends on how good my book is [laughs], and it depends who I'm with. It's funny, because I do find myself doing sit-ups or leg raises, even if I'm reading my book. So generally, yeah, it's a challenge to sit still."
