While Spring is just on the horizon, we’re thinking ahead to those blissful sunny summer days spent lounging poolside or at the beach. Of course, no vintage-loving vixen would ever been seen without her timeless and always glamorous high-waisted bikini.
During the 1940s, because of wartime rationing and limited resources, the high-waisted two-piece swimsuit came into popularity as well as modestly sexy one-piece suits that featured strategic cutouts.
Designed to show off your curves, high-waisted bikinis are flattering on all body types, flaunting all of your best assets. Here is just a few of our favorite styles that we’ll be wearing poolside this summer:
Inspired by the classic silhouettes of the 1940s, the Navy and White Liz Bikini features all the charm of classic Hollywood glamour with a contemporary fit and aesthetic. Perfected with a playful polka dot print and darling skirted bottom, this suit is made to shine.
For a timeless pin up look, the Unique Vintage Nautical Striped Bikini is retro perfection. Designed with a plunging neckline, flattering high-waisted bottoms, and darling nautical details, this suit is a summer essential.
What pin up girl doesn’t love a bit of ruching? The Unique Vintage Red and White Striped Bikini is made for poolside lounging with a striped sweetheart halter top and fully ruched high-waisted bottoms. Sweet, playful, and full of nautical charm, this suit will be a permanent fixture in our summer wardrobe.
One of our bestselling swimsuits and one of our absolute personal favorites, the Pink and White Polka Dot Monroe Two-Piece Swimsuit features every detail we adore about vintage-inspired swimwear: a flattering high-waisted bottom, darling print, and plenty of ruching. If pink and white polka dots don’t float your boat, the Monroe is available in a variety of prints and colors so you’re sure to find one you adore.
