The Trend: Retro Swimwear

Retro! Retro! Retro!

From Esther Williams to Samantha Sage, some of the sexiest and classic pieces swimwear this year is the Retro.  High waisted, sailor girl looks from the 1950's are back once more with today's modern fabrics, cuts, and shapes.  These wonderful swimsuits fit almost all body types and provides modest coverage to some.  

Hey! They always say Less is More.  

The above two piece is by a U.K. designer: Samantha Sage.  She has some wonderfully designed suits that I am eyeing right now.  Just can't decide which to choose!  She has been featured in Vogue and Cosmopolitan (see below).


The above Samantha Sage may be purchased at $77 from Unique Vintage.  It is so cute and I must say sexy and fun.  

And of course, the classic and true swimwear aficionado (or should I say aficionada): Esther Williams.  The above suits can be viewed and purchased at Mod Cloth.  They have a great selection but seems to be running out of sizes, FAST!  What's your other option? Just visit Esther Williams directly.

In case you didn't know, Esther Williams was part of the 1940's Olympics when WWII interrupted.  But no matter... her mark of fame was earned in Hollywood!  She starred in Hollywood's first swimming movie, Bathing Beauty.  And became the iconic pinup of returning GI's when WWII ended.  So does she know retro swimwear? Yes, I would say so!
