Vintage Bathing Suits
I have always considered myself to have been born in the wrong era. One thing I envy of past decades is the modest yet form fitting bathing suits from the 40's, 50's, and 60's. The classic hourglass figure does not look sickly like many models of today. Also, the covered up approach portrays more class and a more lady-like persona than the tiny, almost bare all swimsuits of today. That's why I was thrilled when I started to see some of the silhouettes of yesteryear coming back in the form of classic shapes and designs of swimwear. Take a look at some of these beautifully clad ladies from the past and compare them to some suits you can actually find today.
