15 Retro-Inspired Bikinis And One-Pieces

Retro Swim Black Bikini - Liz Anne Photography

Truthfully, I fell in love with the vintage bikini look when I saw Allie (played by Rachel McAdams) rocking that gorgeous high-waisted two piece bikini in The Notebook.  After that, I tried my very first high-waisted bikini bottom (a smocked version by Tori Praver) — that bikini flattered my hips and tush in all of the best ways, and actually kept my petite-meets-curvy figure looking sexy and adorable; hands down the best bikini bottoms I have ever worn.  And lately, stores are stocking their shelves with retro bathing suits for Spring, and I’m trying to resist the urge to snatch up at least three new swimsuits.  Today’s retro-inspired one-pieces and high-waisted bikinis are modest-ish but still sexy, and back in style in a big way … and I couldn’t be more excited!  I’m dreaming of a beach getaway in one of these 15 throwback bathing suits perfect to take you through Spring and Summer.

 
Completely obsessed with this striped bikini-meets-one-piece hybrid by Lolli Swim and this deep-V halter by 6 Shore Road.

And don’t forget, Shopbop‘s BIG Friends & Family Sale is going on now – that’s a 25% off sitewide sale (a.k.a., the biggest Shopbop F&F sale of the year!)
