1930 Swimsuits #1

When I ask you to think about what a swimsuit from the 1930s looks like, you probably picture a suit in boring black, right? Me too. That's why these photos from 1930 blew me out of the water (ha ha, no pun intended!). Today, part 1 of 1930 swimsuit heaven. Take note of the beach shoes and sandals, as well as the swim caps.

My favorite comes with a matching cape!

Diamonds are a girl's best friend!

This one has an op-art feel. Check out how the black strap extends into the suit.

Low cut!

This one has a squid or octopus type design on the front....

...that extends to the back.

And you all know that if you're looking for an authentic vintage swimsuit, you should be shopping at my sister Pam's site, Glamoursurf.com, right?

Wow, these swimsuits are gorgeous. Thanks for this post - I am inspired to make a dress very similar to the "op art" piece.
