Sexy Cutouts

Cutouts are a swimwear trend seen in many forms during the 2011 collection shows; Max Azria showed swimwear with small, subtle cutouts in both bikini and one-piece styles.

Custo Barcelona and DKNY preferred to place flattering cutouts along the sides of their one-piece suits, creating slimming lines; this is a great swimwear option for women looking for styles that will slim their middles and give them more defined-looking waists.

Looking to shock your companions at the pool or on the beach? Catherine Malandrino’s black, one-piece suit featured cutouts on the thighs, hips, and upper body. Pair the suit with the matching cutout thigh-high booties for an even edgier look; these cutout swimwear styles are certainly not for wallflowers!
