    Hey there, if your anything like me your picking about when it comes to bathing suites. I just wanted to know, does anyone here like retro? im loving these style bathing suites. Im not the type to show alot of skin, its not that I dont have a nice body but I find that girls now use bathing suites as an exscuse to get atleast 80% pretty much naked.

    I love it, but I cant find them anywhere without them being handmade and really, really pricey (Not that I dont like handmade, they make me feel like I have one of a kind!). I wish I could find a pattern for this. They have one like this at urban outfitters but it was 110$ [​IMG]

    Love retro but also love bikinis. I am in Canada and most nice swim wear start at $100.00 and go up. I am a swim suite junky i have 50 or more but we lived on the lake. Now we are 15 mins from 4 lakes so i use that as a excuse to buy more LOL. Hubby is ok with it in fact yesterday he said i bought you a surpirse and he bought me a new bikini , I think he is just glad to have a wife finally that likes to look good for him. His ex wore sweat pants and dirty tee shirts for days on end. Now he is married to a fashion nut LOL so after 7 yrs he is use to the $$ of looking good. Try ebay for retro swimwear with the economy being in the dump you can find good deals.

    Get ahold of a Land's End catalogue. They have cute retro styles, and are not that pricey. Unfortunately, swimsuits are probably one of the most overpriced garments made. I have to pay how much for a yard of spandex????? (spoken loudly with an outraged tone)

    I used to do the swimsuit thing, but not anymore! Maybe if I dropped about 50 pounds...

    I like the retro looking ones too. I also like the ones that have the side pieces cut out-but those would look awful on me. [​IMG]

    Hey... I've dropped 2 in the past 4 days! (southbeach - again) [​IMG] Now I've only got 10 more to go and I'll be back to where I was before my dad passed away.... stress is awful [​IMG]

    Cannot remember the last swimsuit I owned. It was probably 30 years ago. I hate swimming anyway. I'm blind without my glasses and it make me nauseous to see the sun on the water completely a blur. Plus, I live in the mtns. I'd have to drive miles and miles to find a pool, if I lost my mind and wanted to get in one.

    I love those retro kind! there will be a lot of them this year I think, my sister got one last year and it is very flattering on her. I can wear a bikini no problem but prefer a one piece so that I may move around with out a boob or other parts falling out lol. Plus when dealing with a child who wants to be in a tiny bikini???

    I cant believe how small they have become, although I love nuddie beaches and have no problem being in my birthday suite when there [​IMG] but that is a different story all together lol

    I'm afraid that it would take more than yard of spandex for me. If I want a suit, I have to special order from Omar the Tent Maker.​
