Wishlist: Retro inspired One Piece swimsuits

I realized that summer is in full swing (it was suffocatingly hot this past weekend) and I have been completely silent regarding swimsuits. Part of this is my normal aversion to trying on anything mainly comprised of spandex, and the other part is that I don't see a beach trip in my near future.
Regardless, this years trend of retro inspired bathing suits makes me incredibly happy because it means those halter topped, boy short type bottoms are super easy to find. There's also no reason to pay a lot because the selection is incredible and at these prices, you can buy a few.
Here are my choice for ONE PIECE bathing suits...I'll talk all about bikinis when I'm feeling a bit bolder.
UO has been ahead of the game with their swimsuits for some time now, so I can't leave them off my list.
Kimchi Blue Polkadot Swimsuit $79.99 (was $98).
Victoria Secret is my go-to for last-minute, super affordable swimsuits.
Eyelet bandeau one-piece $28.99 (originally $98)!
I like the idea of "firm control" (whatever that means).
Firm control twist-front one-piece $100 (was $134)
This one is actually two pieces but it fits to look like one. Too stinking cute.
"Ahoy" Nautical Sailor Betty Pin up Swimsuit w/Red Anchor Embroidery $98
The cherries on this 50's style pin up suit are too sweet to pass up.
Esther Williams Cherry Bathing Suit $70
This classic cut is brought to a new, funner level with the retro inspired floral pattern.
One Piece Lingerie Tank $92
JCrew's bathing suit quality should definitely be taken advantage of when a sale like this comes along.
Seaside Seersucker cross-back tank with flower $59.99 (was $76).
Finally, this handmade piece is the perfect shape and flatters most any figure.
LIZ on piece in Navy $115
Do you like this seasons retro look? What are your favorite places to buy swimsuits?

WOW! I'm not usually a one piece bathing suit, kind of gal.. but you did an amazing job picking these out. Halter tops are my complete favorite, I think its such an elegant cut, and is flattering for almost all types. I really love the second one!
I hope you had a nice weekend! :)

I love the nautical one, the cherry one and the last blue one! I'm boring- I usually buy swimsuits at Target, because they're so inexpensive. I just don't wear them often enough to splurge on anything this fun!

miss rikki said...

love love LOVE those suits, so much in fact i have the red one from victoria's secret. but a cautionary note - its neckline is verrrrry plunging - if you've got bigger girls, beware! my fav is the navy one from LIZ. so cute!

I am really digging the firm control twist one piece =]
and the cherry 50's pin up
one pieces are getting to be really sexy actually

Michelle "Lady Bug" said...

I have always wanted a swimsuit like these because my body is more of the retro shape than most the skinny types you see now a days. I figure these kind of swimsuits will make me look good regardless of my body shape.

Kristin said...

Ok, I need that nautical number. So fabulous!

I missed these on VS this weekend, hmmm, maybe I was looking for shoes. These are gorgeous!
