Retro Skirted Swimsuits

Like many pear-shaped women, I don't feel that the popular string bikini design really offers adequate coverage for the junk in my trunk. A few years ago, I invested in a retro designed skirted swimsuit. Voila! Covered. Even the designs that are only a skirt in the front are just cut better for a fuller bottom. Below are a few skirted swimsuit designs currently on the market. Most of them are retro flavored. If you are concerned about not having a perfect beach body, the ruched ones are worth every penny. Trust.
Top: ruched "Marilyn" swimsuit, Pin-Up Girl $102*
yellow and stripes swimsuit, Mod Cloth $112
1920s style swim top and skirt, Shabby Apple tops $55 & bottom $30
blue halter color block swimsuit, Assets at Target $50
Bottom: green pleat bust "Bombshell" swimsuit, Pin-Up Girl $88*
strapless ruched swisuit, Profile by Gottex at Nordstrom $138
black collared halter, Lucy B $89
red polka dot skirted bikini, Mod Cloth $90**
stripes and coral swimdress, Rey $90

*All suits from Pin-Up Girl are available in a variety of colors. They also carry plus sizes.
**This is an Esther Williams suit. All Esther Williams suits are available in one or two piece, plus sizes, and many colors. Mod Cloth carries a variety of ready-made designs every year, but you can go to the store's site for a wider variety.

It annoys me that swimsuits are so tiny. I prefer feeling a little more covered up.

Anything that isn't full coverage will become a thong on me, so retro it is!
