Marlies Dekkers is a well known Dutch lingerie designer and one of the European pioneers of the ‘innerwear as outerwear’ trend. Marlies Dekkers’ ‘Puritsu’ bathing suit caught our eye as a great option for summer that doesn’t involve the exposure of all of your best lady bits. It’s still a sexy swimsuit to be sure – the soft suede-like fabric is a deep brown and the gathered centre and gold detail really frame your décolleté. This swimsuit was inspired by the Japanese art of folding (‘puritsu’ meaning fold) – presumably because of the feature folds at the bust. But we actually like the cut out at the back of this swimsuit and the gold coloured double clasps. This swimsuit is definitely a designer number, and prices start at an eye watering $269USD.
