30 Lingerie-Inspired Swimsuits That Will Make You Do a Double Take

Swim trends come and go, but I have a feeling this one is here for the long haul. While lingerie has almost always inspired and informed swimwear design, it hasn't been until just recently that that inspiration has gone from informing the construction of suits to affecting the overall aesthetic as well. Underwire tops and brief bottoms are nothing new, but you'll still be quite shocked when you see the lingerie-inspired collection of swimsuits lined up one after the other. Because truly, they look exactly like the inside of your negligee drawer. 

From lace to laces, ruffles to soft florals, take a gander at the most striking lingerie-inspired swimsuits that are guaranteed to receive compliments and double takes aplenty. Since we're predicting this pretty swimsuit trend won't be going anywhere any time soon, there's no harm in stocking up on it now—summer will be here before we know it. 

Ahead, shop all of the lingerie-inspired swimsuits we're fawning over.
