Vintage Swimsuits

I’ve been looking for a vintage bathing suit for the summer for the past few months, and they are kinda tricky to find, believe it or not. Here are some of the pretty things I’ve found: ModCloth: Bathing BeautyVeronica Bikini Betty swimsuit These suits run between $70-$130. If you’re on the East Coast, you’ll have the item in a few days since they ship from PA. I’ve ordered from them before and I really dig their stuff. Great customer service too. (If you’d like the bikini in the center in a different color, click here.) Anthropology: Vargas two-piecePeaks and Valley's bikiniLorelei one-pieceouteniqua-one-piece I have not bought anything online from Anthropology, but I do enjoy wandering around in the store. These suits run between $170-$300 with shipping and taxes. Lolita’s Girls Black Marilyn Bathing SuitSailor Betty These suits run about $100. The site has a Rockabilly flavor to it. The company’s vintage designs are inspired by the fabulous pin-up girls of the 1940s and 50s. After several successful years of selling pin-up inspired lingerie and dresses, Lolita-Girl launched “Poolside,” a playful pin-up line of women’s swimwear. The glamor girls of decades past were revived with this sweet, playful pin-up collection that has been an overwhelming success. My Baby Jo Pink-cherry one-pieceRetro red polka dot one-piece Both suits are $72 plus tax and shipping. This 1950s retro-inspired swimsuit is flatter for all shapes and sizes. Popina Swimwear Jantzen There is something about this website design that I don’t like, but I what this suit looks like (now on sale for $80). Revamp Vintage produces fine reproduction vintage clothing for both men and women focusing on silhouettes from the 1910s, 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s. Recently they produced a line of swimwear. Some final pieces I found on Get Go Retro that I think are rather cute: Johnie – a blue bandeau 2 piece. $115 Norma Jean – a lovely white suit with a sweetheart neckline. $110 Oh La La – a 2 piece blue suit with two parallel white piping lines and rouching detail in the middle. Looks like a one piece.$119 Ok, so there you have it. If you know of any other high-waist bikinis or retro inspired bathing suits, drop me a line so I can add it to the list.
