Sunday Vintage Swoon: Vintage Swim Suits

It’s been terribly hot here in Omaha this summer (Except yesterday which was wonderful!). We’ve barely had any measurable rain in over a month!

Surprisingly, I have not jumped in the pool one single time this summer. Shame on me, because there’s a pool in my apartment complex.

I think my aging swimsuit has something to do with my reluctance to swim. It’s peeling and losing a bit of its shape. So I’ve found myself searching on Etsy for the perfect replacement. I want a vintage swimsuit – they’re so flattering – and I want a one piece that wasn’t made for somebody’s mom (even if the former owner would be old enough to be my grandmother).

I am by no means a swimsuit model but this is my current suit in a photo from my grad party in 2010.

I want to share with you some of my favorite vintage swimsuits from Etsy – maybe I’ll buy one before the summer is over!

  1. Omg those are all so cute. I’m in the market for a vintage inspired one piece. I live in Seattle though… I only get sun for one more month and then I’m back to hibernation. I need to locate a hot tub.
