The One Swimsuit That's Part-Bikini, Part One-Piece

All of my fellow indecisive ladies, please stand up. Every time an outing requiring a swimsuit pops up, I spend far too much time ruminating over one decision: bikini or maillot? If you would have asked me this question five years ago, that answer would be simple: bikini. But one-pieces are back, and they're much chicer than the swim meet-style options of the past.

What's one to do when they want to show off a little more skin than a one-piece allows, but would rather skip the full exposure of a bikini? If the 15 swimsuits ahead are any indication, the answer is a cut-out one-piece. Before you envision lace-up, Miami-ready options and bizarre tan lines, this summer's stock reaches new heights of creativity. Prepare to pick and choose exactly which space of skin you plan on showing off, from just a hint of midriff to a full center cut-out, and get ready to cut that indecision out once and for all.
