You'd think there'd only be a certain number of ways to cover the human body for the beach/pool and that America's swimsuit designers would have reached that threshold by now, but nope! Live from Swim Week, here are 27 of the more creative suits, featuring some even more creative cutouts. Hope you brought your SPF.

Okay, I guess, if you don't want to wear any more normally cut bottoms for a while.
That mesh looks too fine to leave sieve marks, but someone should really test this out to make sure.
Caution: Probably not meant to be worn under the sun.
From the back.
On the other end of the spectrum, we've got "figure skating costume."
When you want to go for a dip at 3, but you have to host Eurovision at 6.
A few more and you've got a xylophone.
Treat your abs like a Fabergé egg.
Or half-garter thingies.
Do this with Kinesio tape. Dare you.
A little bit Jacquemus, no?
Not *such* a weird silhouette, but consider what the flower petals would do to your sternum.

Business on the left, party on the right.
A corset-lace tan could be kinda cool...
Or that, but on your sides.
Cooler than a boob cage, anyway.
We've seen this border detail on bras...
Now it's on swimsuits.
More Random Ties.
Do the extra straps even make your bottoms less prone to falling off, though?
Just imagine this on your own bum.
In case you wanted a frame for your back cleft.
