Vintage Fashion-Vintage Swimsuits

In honor of the upcoming summer weekend, I'm doing my vintage fashion a little early and focusing on the swimsuit. Any woman who has any "problem areas" doesn't relish swimsuit shopping. It seems that most of the swimsuits I come across today don't hide any of the problems. I think the 50s/60s had it right when it comes to swimsuits. They were sexy, showed a little skin, but not too much. I've pulled out three swimsuits from the time period that are unique, cover, but are still fun for summer.

This one dates from the 1960s and has boy shorts underneath. It's for sale on Etsy by 2blackbirds.

This one is from Planetclairvintage on Etsy. It dates from the 50s, and also looks like a fun dress.

Check out this Red Plaid Swimsuit for sale at Glamoursurf. It dates from the 50s as well.
