These celebrities look hot and chic in bathing suits. From layered tops and skirts to low creative cut outs, the swimsuit trends give us all new ways to revamp our old styles or even adapt the ones we have left behind.
Gone are the days when a one piece swimsuit meant that you are an excellent swimmer, sun-averse or body- conscious. Now, swimsuits are all about looking hot the way you are. And how can one forget to wear the right swimsuits according to our body type? We have a number of articles lined up on the Internet for us to read and find out the right swimsuit for our body.

The 70's kept the trend to show off a lot of legs alive by bringing in the cuts. Halters and bandeaus were in the game.
The 'Baywatch' era brought in these red beauties in the 1990's. The suits were higher cut showing off way more bare hips than before.
Present day bathing suits are all about straps and cuts. The more you bare your skin, the better tan you are able to pose.
They are somewhere more like lingerie and less like bathing suits.
