10 Vintage Bathing Suits We Love

Different folks look for different things in a swimsuit and that’s part of what makes shopping for them such a pain. If you’re the kinda gal who wants something so unique no one else on the beach or at the pool will be sporting it, vintage should be one of your considerations! (We also love handmade suits). Vintage swimsuits are awesome in so many ways – they oftentimes will help you save money, are very green-friendly and will usually ensure more of a covered-up look (which is both in-style and simply more classy, if you ask us!). Today we’ve picked out ten looks being sold online for your shopping ease. Be sure to check measurements and shipping times. See you on the sand!

Psst: here’s our roundup from last year, if you want even more options!

Make sure to lather on sunscreen when you wear this hot vintage 50s white and gold embroidered bathing suit or play suit! (Violetville Vintage, $198)

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

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 ...to me.
thank you for display!
