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, pool or spa. 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.

Often seen on the runway and the most stylish celebrities, you'll find lots of cut-out swimsuits to buy online from designers like Zimmermann to high street brands River Island and Pretty Little Thing. Don't know where to start? We've rounded up 13 of the best available to shop for summer 2023.
