It’s official, summer is here in all its glory. Whether you’re a sun lover hitting the beach or you prefer the quiet of your local pool, you can step out looking like a 1950’s pin-up in your retro bathing suit.
There’s some really fun options out there when it comes to retro swimwear in both one-piece swimsuits and bikini’s, with the main retro style features being: halter necks, high waistlines and shorts-style bottoms to preserve the modesty of your butt cheeks (have you noticed how most modern bathing suits are ridiculously high cut? What’s that about?!)
And there’s lots of beautiful retro swimsuit designs to choose from like: polka dots, stripes, Hawaiian flowers or red cherry prints.
Here’s our pick of some of the best retro bathing suits currently available on Amazon:
