So Hot Right Now! Vintage Swimsuits For Men
You know why vintage swimsuits are so in right now? I'll tell you why. It is not because history always repeats, or because there are only so many permutations of a swimsuit, it is because the old days were the good old days. Nothing bad ever happened in the old days, in fact, I believe that the earth was entirely peaceful and pleasant from 1920 up until 1960, when those filthy hippies came along and ruined the world with Ebola and Swine Flu. We can reclaim the innocence and awesomeness of times gone by simply by wearing clothes which remind us of times which we technically can't be reminded of because we weren't actually alive then.
Vintage swimsuits are very cute, and are experiencing a resurgence amongst the crazy young people. They are typified by their somewhat asexual cut, which runs straight across the upper chest and lower legs, only allowing curves grudgingly if people insist upon having them. Men can look just as great in these as women do, and indeed a man wearing a swimsuit cut in the vintage style may find his choice of attire considered more acceptable due to the fact that it isn't currently associated with anything in particular at this time. (Unlike, say a brassiere, which is very closely associated with women and women's attire.)
The skirted vintage style swimsuit pictured top right is available from Pin Up Clothing USA, and though this particular suit may not work for all men as the sizing apparently runs quite small, it is a very good example of a vintage style swimsuit which would work very well for men. The skirt feature means that there is scope for a little modesty. Other Swimsuits by Modcloth and Pinupgirlclothing.
A great deal of modern day vintage style swimsuits are made in polka dot fabric, once again, hearkening back to an innocent, more simple time where the only fear the world had was total nuclear annihilation.
Almost all vintage swimsuits are made in the halterneck style, which also recalls old school glamor. This style is perfect for smaller women and men, but murder for larger breasted women who find themselves with their heads yoked forward by certain areas of their anatomy.
If you want to splash out on some new feminine styling, a vintage style swimsuit is a perfect piece of attire. You can wear it out and about, or in the privacy of your own home and it really is a very feminine garment in spite of the fact that it is cut in such a way as to be quite androgynous.
