Top 5 Friday: retro one piece swimsuits


Share post:

Retro one piece swimsuits are a happening thing. They are having a moment. At least so we’ve read.

Seems one-piece swimsuits have been earning a rep as “mainstream go-tos” since at least 2013. They are no longer just for ladies who are over a certain age and ladies who don’t have “bikini worthy” figures.

For some time now one-piece swimsuits have been growing in popularity with younger women and even with women with figures that bikinis were designed to show off. Styles can be basic or they can be, arguably, even sexier than string bikinis with cut-out designs that show off about as much skin as a two-piece.

This year retro one-piece swimsuits are front and center.

Here we showcase 5 retro one piece swimsuits that would make excellent choices for cute one-piece swimsuits for ladies who go to the beach more for the purpose of relaxing and having fun than to show off their bodies.

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog. It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing. I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (except for content submitted by guest contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. But I am not an editor and there is currently no staff that I oversee. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs to everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional qualifications and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by qualified persons on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person.
