Retro Swimsuit…Fun in the Sun

Hi Friends!

With the summer weather in full action I am ready for the beach…or at least a pool.  I have been searching for a cute retro-inspired swimsuit. So, I love thrift stores for all kinds of  retro gear, but when it comes to swim wear…I stick to brand new….just saying.

My days of relaxing on a towel while ready a juicy novel  are behind me, and a few years ahead of me. I am chasing kiddos, and sitting in weird positions while building sandcastles. I prefer not to have “my goods” displayed to the public while doing this, so I like coverage and comfort.

I have narrowed it down to 5. Tell me what you think?

  1. Emerald Green
  2. White and Navy
  3. Black & White Stripes 
  4. Sailor Inspired
  5. Black Beauty

So, what do you think?  Which Retro Swimsuit would I get the most use out of?

If you are interested in me writing for you, please contact me at Thanks, Carmody

      I am loving the Emerald Green. I agree with Retro Swimsuits being more flattering

    #5! So cute! No “goods” showing!

      Nina, # 5 would guarantee a “goods free” zone.

    These are so cute! I think with your hair and skin coloring I would go with #1. I have issues with the … ummmm… tops of bathing suits so I have to be really careful. I like all of them except for #3.

      # 3 could create a weird look up top

    I really like #5. It looks like a classic. Where did you find it?

      Hi Cynthia, Anthropologie carries that swimsuit. I agree, it is classic.
