30 Not-So-Average Bathing Suits For Summer

Because not everyone wants to wear a string bikini.


If you are still searching for the perfect bathing suit, but are over all the two-piece and one-piece suits in stores, then it's time to get creative.

Bathing suits don't have to be simple wardrobe pieces. In fact, you can make a major fashion statement with your swimwear.

Below, we've rounded up one-piece and two-piece bathing suits that play up different fabrics, textures and cuts for summer. If you're heading to a pool party or just love wearing bathing suits in your spare time, one of these may do the trick.

Sure, some of these may not be the most practical swimwear styles (sheer panels in the summer will make anyone sweat), and they may leave you with awkward tan lines, but hey, at least you will be the most uniquely-dressed person at the beach, right?

Let us know which suits you'd keep and which ones are a flat out "no."
