I swear. I'm so in love with retro bathing suits that even if I was a size "I'm ready to compete on the Bachelorette" I'd wear one. I bought my first one from Popina about two years ago (it's that red one below--but in yellow) and pretty much haven't looked back.
Granted, the one I bought from Popina takes about ten minutes to shimmy into and you had best be prepared to not go to the bathroom for about five hours (or do and just don't tell anyone....what? I didn't say that) because once that thing's wet and you pull it down it's never going back up.......it's still my favorite bathing suit I've ever owned.
I've acquired a few more since then....and I've got my eye on that amazing black and white ruffled Albion Fit beauty below. Summer's on the way (I think) and in case you're in the market for a new suit....here are some of my favorites!
