Splish splash...

Hallelujah and praise the Lord (of fashion), real swimsuits are back. Swimsuits that don't require a full body wax and a week's fast to wear in public.

Wear were they 18 months ago when I was shopping for my first swimming costume since high school gym classes? I searched my little heart out but not a retro beauty was to be found.

I hate skimpy swimming costumes, I love retro beach style. According to the New York Times retro swimwear is back. Yay!

Although this style is undeniably more comfortable to wear than its more modern counterparts, comfort body shyness is not the reason I love them. I just believe that they are infinitely more stylish and sexy than those that bear (almost) everything.

What woman wouldn't want to project the glamour, playfulness and sheer sexiness of the 1950s beach goddess?

Sigh, doesn't she wear them well?
