I'm really on the fence about whether lingerie-inspired swimwear is a good idea. I guess it kind of depends on where you intend to wear this swimwear. The family-friendly pool at your condo? Maybe not. The cabana at your summer getaway? Perhaps more appropriate.

If lingerie-inspired swimwear fits with your summer fashion needs, there's a brand new line on the block that will have no problem turning heads. Super chic, and slightly naughty, UK-based lingerie line Agent Provocateur has just announced a brand new swimwear line that is designed to "complement the female form." Um, I think that's Agent Provocateur code for make you look like a Bond girl.
A collection of '70s glam meets cut-out chic, the Agent Provocateur swimwear line offers a little bit of everything from super sweet (check out the Candy bikini) to barely-there (see the Lora Bikini pictured here). Yes, the prices are a bit on the expensive side, but this is Agent Provocateur we're talking about. I'd just steer clear of chlorinated water.
