They say less is more, but vintage inspired swimwear is on the rise. Classic 1940/50's styled bathing swimsuits and high waisted two pieces have recently hit the catwalk with Australia's Fashion Week's Ella Bache Splash Swim Resort Wear group show
I'm all for it. Not only do classic swimsuits cover more skin, and that means hiding more flaws *cheer*, but I am sure most people will agree, vintage bathers flatter the majority of female shapes, and add a certain femininity and glamour to our beaches!
A mention for a fantastic giveaway on Tilly and The Buttons Blogspot partnered with For Luna to give away a beautiful vintage inspired swimsuit. The winner gets to choose a swimsuit - subject to availability. The deadline for entries is Friday 10th September at 23:00 GMT. For more details, head on over to Tilly and The Buttons right now!
