Ready for Summer?? I am!

I can remember when I was a Teenager shopping for bathing suits were the first thing on my list every Summer!! My Mom would take us to Hecht's or Macy's and we would look at them and try a million on. Of course she wouldn't allow us to wear anything too "skimpy" as she would say. I love the old bathing suits, they are so sexy and reveal MUCH less. I am not going to lie, I wore my fair share of Bikini's before I had kids, now a nice vintage suit to hide some of the skin is right up my alley!!

Look at those prices!

                                                         I love Pastels.

Love these!! Look how sexy they are!

I love these suits. The yellow is so pretty! I really like the one on the right the best. Perfect for Summer!

Women definitely started to show more skin in the 60s. I love the patterns and the colors!!

No blog of bathing suits is complete without a picture of Marilyn.  

                                                And here is Jayne Mansfield.


  1. I love the yellow best! So pretty. It is so nice to be a girl and to enjoy feminine things. I think our daughters are denied a bit of that these days. Thanks for this lovely post.

  2. Such beautiful women and swim suits! I would like a pretty swimsuit like these, too!

  3. Vintage bathingsuits are so neat - great post!!

    Thank you so much for your post:) I enjoy them tremendously! Im a huge fan of all things retro<3 May God continue to Bless you!

  5. wish they'd bring all these back and at the same prices! :)

    I bought a bathing suit recently- first one in over 20 years! I can't wait till the pool opens! ♥

  6. I wish we had the weather to justify purchasing a new swimsuit. Here in England, Summer deserted back in 2007. I do love the retro styles though. So much kinder to the average woman's figure.

  7. love it! I have spent so much $$ on vintage-inspired swimsuits! I just discovered this year that Catalina has a line of suits that resemble Esther William's classic sheath for they even come in cherry print! Not quite $5 cheap but much less than I have paid in the past, you should check it out
