Love Island 2024 has landed, and as usual it's giving us all of the swimwear inspo for a hot girl summer.

Once considered the bikini's conservative sister, swimsuits are arguably now the chicest thing to wear to the beach, pool or spa - and the Islanders are loving their cut-out styles. Offering more coverage than a bikini but showing a little more skin than a regular swimming costume, they hit the swimwear sweet spot.
