Swimming in Style

Bathing suits have always been tough for me. I honestly haven’t owned one in a couple of years just because I can’t seem to come up with anything that makes me comfortable but isn’t frumpy. Everything is either too little fabric or too much fabric, ie. a “burkini”.

My good friend Leanna posted this fantastic video today and I thought I would pass it along to you all. The speaker, Jessica Rey, talks about the evolution of bathing suits over the years from voluminous Victorian costumes  to teeny bikinis today. I really enjoyed her presentation, but was even more happy to discover that she had a vintage inspired swimsuit line! I love the bathing suits of the 40’s and 50’s and her line draws inspiration from those eras. Just fabulous if you ask me.

Here are my two favorites from her line along with some vintage examples:
