We love almost everything about beach days — except, perhaps, what happens afterward when we're peeling off our swimsuits following a long day in the sun. Despite religious SPF application and shade-providing umbrellas and hats, there's nothing more we can do about preventing tan lines. So why fight an impossible fight? Let's leave our fate in the hands of the sunscreen gods and wear those weird bathing suits we've been pining after.
We found 15 oddly cut bathing suits that are so cool, we wouldn’t mind emblazoning their unusual designs on our bodies (well, if not for our skin-care regimens). Click on to shop the strappy bikinis, cut-out-filled one-pieces, geometric maillots, and scallop-edged pieces waiting to make their strangely shaped mark. The line(s) form right ahead.
