Once considered the bikini's conservative sister, swimsuits have slowly become more stylish over the years and are now arguably the chicest thing to wear to the beach (or your back garden!) Exhibit A: the cut out one-piece. Offering more coverage than a bikini but showing a little more skin than a regular swimming costume, it hits the swimwear sweet spot.
