PG's boob window? It's empowering or a symbol placeholder or something.
Helena's bare abs? She worked out a lot.
Wonder Woman's whole ensemble?

It has been explained before with the Diana Trevor story, though I guess a tip of the hat to a woman who gave her life to aid them wasn't good enough. Really drilling that in with Hippolyta wearing the flag in the scene right before this yet dropping the connection in favor of some coincidental weather and a few stars that might be Cassiopeia.

For a moment there I almost thought this was closer to the present day, ignoring the sudden break in the story, and they might actually be trashing the swim suit in favor of something less ridiculous.

Silly, optimism. Sensible clothing is for kids* (and men).

*If you know of something that contradicts this, please don't tell me. I don't want to know.

Explain the colors and iconography? I think the Diana Trevor story works just fine.

Explain the cut? I wouldn't. There's no justification, there can be no justification, the only thing you can possibly do is draw that much more attention to how absurd it is (and potentially make it that much harder to actually fix in the future, though obviously there's not a lot of hope of that in this case to begin with).

If you put my toes over a fire, though, I'd retcon in some method by which the Themyscirans have been visually observing the outside world through the years, and have them base her costume off those of contemporary Man's World female heroes, under the theory that they want Man's World to see her as a leader and guardian and that's how leader/guardians dress out there. No matter what, it can't be an amazon design, though - even if I can't acknowledge the meta male gaze, I'm still not going to allow the in-universe amazons to share or justify it.

So in theory Polly could have looked into Man's world to see what contemporary female heroes were wearing, saw Black Canary in her bathing suit and voilĂ  Diana has one too.

But even Polly thought the fishnets were tacky. /ducks

That's an amusing idea.

The really obvious answer is to have the Amazons move beyond their bronze age origins, but doing that robs them of their strongest visual quality.
