Naked swimwear is the daring new trend for those not afraid to flash the flesh – just mind the dodgy tan lines – The Sun

THE statement bikini has been popping up all over Instagram this summer as influencers perfect their poolside poses.

While women have been trying to avoid the dreaded tan lines for decades, the latest designs actually encourage them thanks to fiddly straps and awkward cut outs.

Sheer bikinis have also become somewhat of a trend with Brazilian designer Adriana Degras offering up a range of see-through two pieces.

Equally daring are Karen Hurley's designs from down under with flower appliques that cover nipples offering little in the way of modesty.

And you can forget the under-boob bikini with this summer’s style proving that less really is more when it comes to lounging.

The pouch bikini bottom has also proven to be a hit among bloggers and celebs alike, with the high-rise knicker leaving very little to the imagination.

The trend first emerged when Oh Polly launched a £40 Skinny Dipping bikini back in April.

And while the two-piece received some flack, it has clearly had some serious fans with many influencers hoiking their bottoms up into a pouch.

But it isn’t just bikinis that have received a naked makeover with the one-piece making a risqué return this summer.

A far cry from your classic bather, these swimming costumes ramp up the sex appeal and are made up of very little fabric.

A popular design among bloggers appears to be the keyhole design which features a large cut out panel and a high rise bottom.

They are often finished with a tie or chain to make the wearers’ waist appear tiny.

While the extreme designs may be popular they have also be ridiculed on social media with people comparing some to “dental floss.”

Others have compared the bikinis to the thongs you are given during a spray tan and have even dubbed them as “intrusive as smear tests”.
