The most scandalous swimwear trend yet: This VERY racy cut-out bikini is dividing shoppers – so would you dare to wear it?
- A bikini that exposes the full underside of the breast is causing controversy
- The $16.95 two-piece from Shein has open panels slashed right below the nipple
- Many shoppers say their breasts slip through the tiny triangle shaped halter top
- One customer told women with large areolas to avoid the style at all costs
- But others were delighted with the style, saying it made them ‘feel sexy’
A bikini that exposes the full underside of the breast and more than a generous glimpse of cleavage has sparked heated debate among online shoppers.
The ‘Cut-Out Halter Triangle’ from fast fashion website Shein is perhaps the most daring swimwear yet, combining the already risqué ‘underboob’ and cut out trends into one extraordinarily revealing style that’s guaranteed to grab attention.
The $16.95 bikini, which comes in four colours in sizes small to extra large, barely covers the nipples, with open panels slashed right below the areola and a string tucked under the breast to protect the wearer’s modesty – but only just.
It’s an equally provocative story on the lower body, where Brazilian G-string bottoms stitched with fishtail detailing reveal almost every inch of the behind.

Product reviews reveal a group of shoppers split between people outraged at the impracticality of the design and those who love the way it accentuates their assets.
‘It took me nearly 15 minutes to even get it to stay in place long enough for a photo,’ said one customer, who left a one-star rating.
‘My boobs kept falling through the bottom hole and my nipples were out. There’s no way I could wear this anywhere without taping my boobs up.’
Another warned women with large nipples to avoid the bikini at all costs, writing: ‘Big areola girls, be cautious.’

A third agreed, admitting she was paralysed with fear of exposing herself in the daring design.
‘This suit was not for me. I could not move or something would come out,’ she said.
But some loved the racy cut, leaving five-star reviews and gushing comments that describe it as ‘cute’, ‘vibrant’ and ‘fun’.
‘Cute and risky, but into it!’ one woman said.
A second said while the bikini made her ‘feel sexy’, it required strategic tightening to ensure it stayed in place.
‘A nip slip can definitely happen if you’re not careful but tie it tightly and you’ll be fine,’ she said.
Another confirmed the bikini is not for the fainthearted or anyone with a conservative dress sense.
‘VERY tiny which I have no problem with, but if you’re skeptical don’t buy this,’ she said.

Others felt it was suitable for sunbathing on the balcony or in the backyard, but not for the beach.
‘Probably can’t wear the top out in public because it’s likely to show nipple. But overall, cute and different style,’ said one.
Some said they would wear the bikini to a boat party if they could secure it in place with body tape beforehand.
