Vintage 1950s Style Pin Up Red with White Polka Dots Swimsuit

I'm in love! I bought this on a whim because I've been dying for a cute retro one piece ever since my other one wore out and I can definitely see myself buying this again in the future. My measurements are 41-31-42 and I bought a size 14 (I was wondering if I should have gotten a 16, but I went with my instincts) and it fits perfectly. I tried it on to show my sister and she asked to try it to see how it fit (she's smaller on top and a little more hippy than I am) and it looked so amazing on her that she bought one too -and she's usually a bikini girl. It tucks and smooths all your curves into place and gives you this fantastic hourglass shape (not to mention you look about a size smaller once you get it on because it's tailored so well -it even tamed my little bit of "tummy pudge"). I'm quite busty, too (36DD) and it gives me more support than any other bathing suit I've found in this style without an underwire. Definitely pull out your measuring tape so you get the perfect fit and remember that it stretches, so go with your instincts. I went with a 14 instead of a 16 because I'm so tired of things being baggy in my waist, and it ended up fitting my chest and bottom perfectly because the fabric has a nice stretch even though it's sturdy.

What I love about this suit (aside from it's ability to flatter my body) is how it's flirty and cute without being a bikini. I'm 22 and have never been a bikini fan so to have a one piece that doesn't look super conservative but still covers up just the right amount of skin is so nice. It's the first bathing suit I've ever put on and fell in love with not just the suit, but how I looked in it. I could strut around in this all day and not feel self conscience at all.

I'm also from British Columbia and it was delivered the next day, which was impressive and rather unexpected, so it was a happy surprise.
