Swimwear Section: The Bettie retro one piece swimsuit by Pinup Couture

Retro_swimsuit

We are trying to bring you some swimwear that isn’t retro or nautical for our Swimwear Section, we promise, but we just keep getting distracted by these gorgeous retro styles, and who are we to resist them? This polka dot one piece is know as ‘The Bettie’, and it’s $68 at Pin Up Girl Clothing. It may be a little too retro for some tastes, but if you’re a big fan of pin up girl style, this is the one for you! It’s also available in red.

    This is just the shape of swimsuit I want – but perhaps in a plain colour…
    You should arrest the guy skulking behind the surfboard though….

    Yes, I’m with Am. That guy looks creepy!
    What I really love about this is that the model is PALE. Pale pale. It actually gives me some idea of what I might look like in the swimsuit.

    I will never fault you for picking retro looks. I personally love retro and just wish I had the budget to fill my wardrobe with some of the retro pieces featured here!

    Oh, I so nearly bought this a few months ago! But I was put off by the shipping prices, so I had to get an inferior UK swimsuit. *sniffle* I still love it!

    LOL at the guy with the surfboard! Didn’t even notice him!
    @ Han – yes, you’re so right, it’s unusual to see models with genuinely pale skin. Makes it easier for me, too 🙂

    I love how they chose a gorgeous but curvy model. It looks great AND realistic on her.
