18 Super Revealing Swimsuits That’ll Have You Serving Body
Go bare or go home.
For the past few years, high-waisted bikinis and one-piece swimsuits have reigned supreme in the swim world — the more coverage, the better. But swimwear trends, like clothing trends, are moving in a new, tinier direction. The barely-there aesthetic made famous in the ’90s and early ’00s is back with a vengeance, bringing with it the less-is-more attitude we saw during those nearly-naked eras of style. s
Though string bikinis never really went away, they’ve unarguably shrunk down in size with the most recent swimwear drops, resulting in a brand new classification of suit: the micro bikini. It seems that all of the most popular swim trends of 2023 include at least one ultra-revealing design detail (if not more).
Think: one-pieces with high-cut leg holes, à la Baywatch, low-rise bottoms right out of 2001, cut-out suits that show off more than your average one-piece, and then there’s the thong bikini sported by the likes of Kendall Jenner, Dua Lipa, and Lizzo — an undeniable sign that full-coverage swimwear is a thing of the past.
Ahead, peruse 18 of the most stylish bikinis and one-pieces that also just happen to show off a whole lot of skin. These revealing swimsuits are guaranteed to have you serving body.
1. The Ultimate Reveal
This two-piece is basically the next best thing to nude. It’s giving vampy-sexy Mugler vibes for sure.
2. Boob Cut-Outs
Looking for a way to hop on the underboob cut-out trend while still holding on to (some) support? Try this neon option.
3. Mermaid Vibes
A slinky bandeau bikini equipped with a starfish embellishment gives serious Little Mermaid vibes. Plus, Alt Swim is Hailey Bieber-approved, FYI.
4. Wild One
If Emily Ratajkowski designed it, you know it’s going to be chic. This strappy leopard print bikini is sexy as they come.
5. Colorblock Sparkles
This strappy number is made with shimmering fabric that adds a little something special (and shows off even more).
6. Snakeskin Strings
This lime green twist on a classic string bikini adds a bit more wow factor — at a great price point too.
7. Orange Crush
This string bikini in kumquat makes a total statement, especially since the zesty color is summer’s color du jour.
8. Plunging Neckline
One-piece suits take on a whole new vibe when equipped with huge cut-outs and a deep-V neckline.
9. Pretty Crochet
If you don’t think crochet can look spicy, take a cue from Dua Lipa who’s taken a liking to micro swimsuits in the whimsical texture.
10. Monokini Mania
The Good American swim launch is more than just good, it’s great. Take for example, this adorable monokini — a onesie that still shows plenty of skin.
11. Groovy Florals
If you like this bright tropical set from the front, just wait until you see it from the back.
12. Cheeky Cut-Out
13. Thong Bottoms
There’s nothing more revealing than a butt-baring suit. You’re welcome.
14. Spicy Cut-outs
Navel, waist, underboob, and pelvic cut-outs? This baddie is hotter than the summer sun.
15. Chains, Chains, Chains
With the chic chain details on top and bottom, this swim set is practically body jewelry.
16. Not-So-Mellow Yellow
This intricate bikini can be tied endless different ways. If the boob-framing straps don’t catch every eye, the neon hue sure will.
17. Strappy & Sexy
Riot Swim has a slew of barely-there options, like their stringy Bixi Top and Bottom set. The best part? It comes in more than 20 colors, making the mix-and-match possibilities endless.
18. The Totally Sheer One-Piece
With risqué, see-through panels, this one piece is the perfect optical illusion. It shows more skin than a bikini, but due to its one-piece design, comes without the risk of a peek-a-boob.
