Swimming ch, movie star and all-around glamour girl Esther Williams was one of our favorite retro beauties! In the 1940s and ‘50s, she became famous in the athletic world for swimming on Billy Rose’s Aquacade, a dance and swimming show that performed at the World’s Fair. The bathing beauty captured the attention of the film studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and went onto star on the silver screen alongside Van Johnson, Lucille Ball and Frank Sinatra. Naturally, her knack for water and glam makes her the perfect namesake for a dreamy, retro swimwear line!

Esther Williams Swimwear: Old Hollywood Glam

Esther Williams bathing suits are designed for the perfect combination of figure flattery and high style. In fact, Williams herself was an early swimsuit pioneer, advocating for better fits and styles before it was in vogue. In the 1940s, she worked with company Cole of California to develop lightweight, supportive swimsuits to replace the previously thin, cotton styles of the time. Esther Williams: bathing beauty, athletic superstar and retro rule-breaker! At Unique Vintage, you’ll find regular and plus size vintage swimsuits from this glamorous collection.

Glammed Out Swimwear in Trendy Styles

Whether you’re after a classic Esther Williams swim dress or dream of a polka-dotted two-piece that makes you feel like a pretty pinup, this collection surely includes a style that suits your fancy. Even though these swimsuits typically feature retro cuts and fits — hello, high-waisted swim shorts and pinup one-pieces — they come in tons of pretty and eye-catching patterns. We love the florals, dots and tropical print swimwear in this collection. Pick up your faves and get free shipping on orders of $150 or more!
