Trendspotting : Retro Swimwear


Doesn’t Marilyn look beautiful? Gotta Love Miss Monroe. And the style of swimsuits that were popular in her hay-day are making a major comeback in Summer 2012. Many designers are creating fashionable one pieces cut similar to the one she is wearing while others immolate the style in bikinis by using bandeau style halter bikini tops and high-waisted bottoms. The retro style is very complimentary to a curvy shape, accentuating curves without making them look bulbous or slutty and the extra fabric that comes in a swimsuit style like this does well to hide any major problem areas you might have. Retro style swimsuits are very chic and trendy right now and they are a great way to look fab while being comfortable in your own skin at the beach this season. Here are a couple of cute ones I’ve found.







I’m thinking of trying a retro swimsuit this season, what about you? Do you like them or do you think they are more granny than chic? Share your opinions in the comments below !

Until Next Time !

  1. I’m loving these retro suits! I need all the bottom coverage I can get and it seems this will be the only way I’m gonna get the fit I need/want. Besides, they’re uber cute! That green one is calling me. 🙂

    • They are great for bottom coverage! & one of the few swimsuit styles that is literally flattering to all body types. I think the green one is quite nice too, it’d be a great one to try!
