Cut, Style, and Detail Elements
Beach romance: Delicate embellishments celebrate femininity with elegant neck and back details. Traditional beach-to-boudoir frills like ruffles, crochet, ruching, and bell sleeves add visual charm to solid-colored bathing suits. Laser-cut flounces enhance edges with filigreed grace.

Sheer mesh filling in various shaped cutouts creates enticing forms and contours. White lacy styles convey dainty bridal and irresistible honeymoon lingerie appeal. Shop Cutewe for cute plus-size swimsuits like this enchanting chambray blue beauty with an intricate lace appliqué that exudes romance.

Sexy straps: Lace-up lingerie styling on one-piece looks, separates, and cover-ups extends into another year to sensationalize seductive swimwear. Instead of settling for safe silhouettes, women are rocking more revealing swim fashions with flirty lattice- and bondage-style strap work. Decorative strips across necklines, midriff sides, low backs, and bikini bottoms intensify drama.

Sporty luxe: Activewear’s impact on mainstream fashions is making constantly evolving sporty looks versatile mainstays. Beyond color blocking, rash guards, and mesh basics, designers are combining sport technology, innovative intelligent textiles, and contemporary styling. Crossovers from swimwear to everyday attire include one-piece creations becoming body suits and rash guards substituting for sun-protective streetwear. For energetic activities, consider cute plus-size bathing suits like this athleisure sailing style in dark marine blue.

Beach-to-street styles: Fashionistas crave stylish and practical swimwear for year-round use. Women can transition new adaptable styles into streetwear. Beach-to-gym/bar/boudoir, festival chic, and sporty luxe bathing suits and cover-ups highlight classic yet multifunctional silhouettes. Slipping skirts or pants over one-piece swimsuits is gaining favor. So is pairing halter and crop swim tops with shorts and jeans.

Raised-neck tops: This 2016 breakout trend isn’t slowing. Designers are introducing high-neck tanks and crop tops with various cuts, fabrics, and modern decorative detailing.

High-rise legs: Bottom leg openings slashed extra high on sexy one- and two-piece swimsuits elongate and flatter shapely legs. Fashion inspirations from the late 1980s into the early ‘90s influence stylish lines and materials.
