10 Vintage Bathing Suits We Love

This sassy green and blue bombshell bathing suit is a gorgeous piece done in such joyful colors, this suit will make you feel like a million curvy bucks every time you slip it on and zip it up. Elastic panels, convertible straps, and an interior bra with multiple closure settings make for the perfect fit for just about any shape. Perfect to wear with a sunhat, a pair of vintage espadrilles, and a blue Hawaiian cocktail in your hand back with a covered metal zipper! (Vintage Box, $150)

Polka dots and ruffles – the ultimate in girly pinup vintage fashion! 80s designer Bill Blass one piece swimsuit. Black with a white polka dot print. Shelf bra in the top. Ruffled top opening. Halter strap is removable to make it a strapless swimsuit. No fasteners, simple slip on style. (Jessamity, $55)

This awesome bathing suit has a fun peek a boo mid section! The pale yellow and brown suit has a fun pattern. The bust gathers and ties and the bottom half gathers towards the middle. A full elastic back. Nice for hugging those curves. Lined in front to bottom. (Wear It Again, $250)

There are some vintage styles I do like, with the right fabric. But since when is 90"s clothing considered "vintage"?

I just have always loved women in bathing suits.

It's so nice to see swimsuits with more fabric now that I'm in my 60s. If these could be found in my budget then I would seriously get one, maybe two. The old may be back in style again but the price is all new.

enjoyed the variety of suits that were available for all body types. not everyone looked great in a bikini! and some still wear them when they do not flatter their bodies. I like choices, and like when a lady chooses the most flattering for her body. that's classy and beautiful me.
thank you for display!
