Retro-Swimsuits for Dog Days and Destinations

Jul 28 2008

It was 62 years ago this month that the bikini made its debut in Europe.  However, the navel wasn’t publicly paraded on America’s beaches, until the 1960’s.  Think Elvis movies and Beach Blanket Bingo.

I still haven’t figured how bikinis get continually more expensive when there’s less and less of it every year… Oh well.

Need another suit for that destination honeymoon or to welcome the dog days of August?  Retro-designed swimsuits are a fun blast from the past.  Via Closet Charm, I found this adorable halter style, pink with white polka-dot one piece from (also in black).  Not usually one for polka dots, they are starting to grow on me. Too cute!

Retro-style suits can be very flattering as well.  From classic sheaths and bandeaus to swimdresses, you can even get your suit custom-made at Esther Williams swimsuits online store.

Happy Monday Everyone!
