If bikinis aren’t your thing, take into consideration the pin-up swimsuit trend. Yes, retro-inspired swimsuits take their inspiration from the 1950s, but there’s nothing dated about this season’s looks.
Designers are focusing on curve-hugging vintage silhouettes that manage to show off just enough skin without feeling too revealing. Think balconettes, bustiers, and high-waisted bottoms, the styles that flatter every body type. And while our favorite suits have a modern spin, prints like polka dots, gingham, and sailor stripes present the Old Hollywood glamour of Marilyn Monroe and Sophia Loren.
So this Summer, find your new go-to swimsuit by looking at the chic styles of the past. Here are a few suggestions.
