Happy Fitting Tip Thursday Swimwear and Lingerie Friends.

In honour of this scorching heatwave I thought we might take a moment to learn some questionably fun facts about bikinis. If you can ignore the fact that this poor young woman has the presentation skills of a Barney child-actor, there are some interesting things to be learned…

Above all, I think we can be glad that swimsuits no longer contain enough fabric to actually drown the bather.

Certainly makes all the amazing runaway looks from the recent swimwear show in Miami even more appealing.

Cheers,

Maggie

Happy Totally Retro Tuesday Swimwear and Lingerie fans!

Today we have a spotlight on one of the great swimwear models of all time! The amazing Betty Brosmer, showing us all how to work a swimsuit for the camera.

Who’s Betty Brosmer? Seriously?

Aw c’mon…

Fine, according to Wikipedia… the not-very reliable source; “Betty Brosmer is an American former model born in Pasadena, California on August 2, 1935. She was a popular pin-up at the height of her career in the 1950s.”

“In 1961, she married Joe Weider, co-founder of the International Federation of BodyBuilders. Brosmer is the co-founder of Shape Magazine, a health and fitness publication for women and currently writes two magazine columns which appear in other health and fitness magazines.”

Isn’t she stunning? I wonder if any of the models down in Florida at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week-Swimwear down in Florida have that perfect hourglass figure? Don’t you just love her vintage swimsuit? How the heck does it stay up?

Greeting from the land of Swimwear and Lingerie.

Once again we have Marilyn Monroe working her swimwear as no other woman could!
Wish my hind view looked this adorable in such a cute and frilly little two piece swimsuit.

Cheers,

Hi Everyone! How is your wednesday going so far? Can I brighten it up a bit with a photo post from Swimwear and Lingerie Land?

Marilyn Monroe in a one piece swimsuit and heels by the pool…sigh wish I could be lounging by a pool in my suit right about now.

Cheers,

Happy Tuesday my Swimwear and Lingerie Peeps!

Yah, thats right I said “Happy” Tuesday. You know why? Because every day of the week CAN be happy, not just Fridays and I am going to keep hammering that home until we all accept it. Gosh Golly Darn It!

{Eep, look at me cursing all Amishish…Sorry for the strong language folks, I’ll try to keep my happy
passion in check}

Amish Swimwear ?

Amish Swimwear ?

…and we’re back.

{blink blink…what? Burned into your retinas you say? Surely you’re exaggerating…}

Shake it off, shake it off…stop crying… the image will fade from your mind.. repeat after me, You are NOT permanently scarred by what you have just seen! Fine… I’m sorry.

C’mon, it was either that or a dirty leprechaun in a mankini joke. I think we can all agree that I made a wise-ish choice.

For once, our Totally Retro Tuesday is a Vintage Swimwear focus rather than vintage lingerie. Refreshing right? Kinda?

Still have’t forgiven me for the mostly naked, top hat wearing dudes above, have you? Again, very sorry.

Take a quick look at our video below and you will see where the Retro in Totally Retro Tuesday comes in!

Pretty awesome pics right? I adore the early two piece swimsuits, but mostly I love the slightly naughty, definitely mischievous looks on the faces of those rebellious women! You go you bad ass chicks! Way to break down the barriers and wear whatever the heck you want!

Cheers,

Maggie
