13 Vintage-Inspired Swimsuits For Retro-Lovers

You've probably already picked up on the prevalence of high-waisted briefs, balconette tops, and bandeaux in this season's crop of swimwear. The new wave of luxury bathing suit brands breaking into the scene seem to share a soft spot for retro silhouettes — which is something we're all for. These Old Hollywood styles aren't just flattering for an array of body types, with their cinched waists and underwire breast support, but they come in cute cuts, colors, and patterns that make us feel like we've stepped straight out of a '50s romance film.
Ahead, you'll find the halter-top maillots, flirty ginghams, and ruched bottoms that will give you a chance to feel a little bit like Marilyn (or Audrey, or Grace, or Elizabeth) at the beach this summer.
