12 Revealing Swimsuits That Are As Close To Naked As You Can Get Away With On A Public Beach

As a born-and-raised beach girl, one of my favorite things to wear in the summer is a seriously adorable bikini. Half the time I always have one under my clothes during the hot months, so I'm never not prepared for a spontaneous beach trip or pool lounging. Bonus points of an itsy bitsy bikini: You don't have to worry about getting weird tan lines from your bathing suit.

Of course, there are completely unique suits out there for all your quirky tastes. And then there are the bikinis that basically go breaking public decency laws. They are definitely sexy. They are definitely attention grabbing. They will definitely ensure you don't feel too hot while basking under the sun. And they definitely provide a sort of excitement, since you never know when you might have an accidental wardrobe malfunction during a pickup game of beach volleyball.

In celebration of summer and wearing the least amount of clothes possible, check out these 12 suits that leave basically nothing to the imagination. There are mesh cutouts, deep V's, and completely sheer materials galore. They're not my cup of tea, but if you're ready to do some serious booty-flaunting at the beach, more power to you.
