Don't forget sunglasses!

This 1950s black sheath swimsuit is one of our best sellers, darling, and you simply can’t go wrong by taking the advice of fellow vintage lovers! Our stylish shoppers simply adore this suit from Esther Williams for its sleek, slimming effect, classically retro shape and its basic black coloring that pairs perfectly with your favorite cat eye shades and a colorful sarong. The one-piece sheath style fits snugly against your curves while also offering a bit of gathering down the sides for truly flattering appeal. The back is smooth and seamless to keep you looking toned and trim, while the skirted front is a bit more modest to help hide any areas of insecurity. To flatter your bust area, this black bathing suit also offers an adjustable halter neck with a slightly padded bodice that stays put all day long. No one knows the merits of vintage swimsuits better than Unique Vintage, and this 1950s black sheath stunner is one of our very best!

LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Esther Williams is an amazing woman, her bathing suits are just as amazing as her. The size chart says the size 10 fits like a 6. I'd say it fits like an 8. I'm normally an 8 and got this just in case and it fits amazingly. Hides all those spots you hate (armpit is the worst). Ephasizes your natural curves, its slimming and classy. SHIPPING was SO fast! Granted I'm only a few hours away from the warehouse, but 99% of vintage places out there don't have these swimsuit available in stock. THANK YOU THANK YOU unique vintage!

This bathing suit just arrived today, and already I am completely in love with it. I've never been much of a fan of one-pieces, but this one is the absolute perfect bathing suit. It's sexy, classy, comfortable, and flattering all at the same time--modest without being boring or prudish. I couldn't be happier; definitely the best bathing suit I've ever bought, and I have a lot of cute ones! The vintage aspects are adorable; I don't think there could be a better design. I haven't had a chance to wear it at the beach or pool yet, but I can't wait.

This swimsuit is amazing!! I absolutely love everything about it! It's so flattering and fits beautifully! I've already gotten a ton of compliments about it from different people! The fabric also seems durable, so I should definitely be able to get a ton of uses out of it! I do recommend, however, that you follow the recommended sizes instead of how they are labeled, since they do definitely run small. Other than that, it is the perfect swimsuit, and I would recommend it for anybody!

This swimsuit is amazing! I love it, it is very slimming, has the proper support, and it looks really cute. I've worn it many times and every time at least 5 people compliment me on it. It's comfortable all around. I say it is a wonderful buy.
