Yikes! Karina Smirnoff’s see-through swimsuit is the outfit du jour for the cover of this month’s Playboy magazine. It’s quite an eye-popper! In a shoot Mr. Hef himself calls “unforgettable” (um, ok, mental image get out of our heads), the Dancing with the Stars’ Russian hottie shows us a little more than usual in a hot monokini.

Here’s the deal, we’re actually all for black swimsuits with the cutout sides, the peek-a-boo detail gives this type of suit a flair about it. The fact that it’s not a two-piece bikini and not a one-piece (but something in the middle) definitely makes it original. Of course, the see-through factor is a bit much in this case, cause you know there had to be some photoshopping up in the bust area. So for us undercover bunnies who like to be sexy without going overboard, a good option to consider is the Show Off Black Monokini by L*Space Swimwear.

This sexy 2011 bikini features a similar lace-up detail below the bust, plunging cutout sides, and halter top style, but without the fishnet mesh. L*Space designer Monica Wise certainly has a knack for creating magazine worthy swimwear, since this celebrity-coveted brand has been featured everywhere from People Style Watch to the New York post this season!

Hey Karina, we love your dancing and your kind of sweet-sounding voice, but if you’re thinking of hitting the beach in style, you’re going to want to go for like something like this!
