Retro Swimsuits

Neither becca nor I are bikini girls. That much paleness does not need to greet the sun. Since we both love vintage styles, we've been looking for great 1950s inspired swimsuits. The one-piece bathing suits keep everything under wraps, and the two-pieces are far more flattering than the wisps of fabric available in most stores. I did a big post about retro beach wear last year, and while many of those suits are still available, I thought I'd see what this year's stock has to offer.
Top: navy nautical suit, "Betty" by Pin-Up Couture on Pin Up Girl Clothing $69
metallic pink halter suit, Lolita Girl Clothing at Baby Girl Boutique $96
red swimdress, What Katie Did $73.47
Bottom: peppermint stripe halter and boy shorts, Gloria Cardinal on Etsy $85
sailor suit, Mod Cloth $124.99
custom blue bikini, Miss Brache on Etsy $115
red retro bikini, My Baby Jo $73
cherry print one-piece, My Baby Jo $72 This suit is available in other colors and prints as well as custom sizes at Esther Williams.

If I ever buy another suit (besides the workout suits I wear for laps), I'll definitely be going for a retro bikini. I prefer the more modest look.

I really want a retro swim suit. They manage to be both more modest and sexier than current suits.

Retro swimwear is very "in" this year. The suits offer a little more coverage than traditional suits without sacrificing glamour, cuteness or style. And, it offers a little more mystery : )

Please keep my Retro Swimwear line in mind for next year if you do a posting again. I am the designer and all my suits are made in the USA and available on line.

These bikinis are great! Retro style is so much fun! I love all the cherries.

Danielle said... has some really cute vintage/retro swimsuits. I was wondering if anyone else was having problems finding suits that fit them? I am 3XL size and custom makes them!
