I refuse to buy vintage bathing suits

There’s one line I won’t cross in vintage shopping and that is buying a used bathing suit. I am in no way a germ freak and do believe that vintage stores clean their items, but it’s just something I cannot fathom. Luckily this year I can still wear vintage fashion in the summer without buying an older previously worn swim suit.

Fashionista posted six retro swim suits on sale this year.

I purchased the Jantzen Runched Vamp One-Peice from Macy*s. The suit is available in red, black, and white.

It reminded me the classic 50s pin up girl you would find with Elvis in 1961 movie Blue Hawaii.
