Three years ago, I bought this swimsuit. I had had my second child six months previous and wanted something to cover me up, but not too much. It was perfect. I felt confident wearing it and not too exposed. Cutout swimwear is perfect beach glam. It makes a statement, it doesn’t give too much away, but still leaves enough to the imagination. It may leave some odd tan lines, however, as we know, too much sun is no good for us, so that point is redundant. These four swimsuits I found on The Outnet are hot! I love them. If I was to choose one, I’d go for the fuchsia and apricot bandage cutout swimsuit. It has a super-flattering cut, the fabric is thick, therefore holds you in tightly, allowing large amounts of confident beach strutting and cocktail-sipping, whilst sunbathing under a huge floppy sunhat, reading no other book than Fifty Shades of Grey.
