Now this is a little story called regret (yes another one)
Way back in the 80s (before the term Vintage was popular or in vogue) I found a pair of beautiful black tight thick 40s/50s swimmers similar to these ones

Mine had a beautiful fancy button (which I may still have) at the bodice.Now the regret part is that as I wasnt wearing them and as the top was so nice I thought I could cut the bottoms out and wear the top but being no tailoress at all I wrecked them somehow (i think without the bottoms it kept riding up) so I have them no longer so that is a huge regret seeing as now I collect vintage more seriously than then.
I also at around the same time found a beautiful pink floral with shirred back 50s style that I loved but was too shy to wear being so body and fashion conscience (silly me! hindsight!!) what happened to them I will never know unless fingers crossed I gave to my mum to look after and they are in her cupboard somewhere.They were similar in style to these but mine were pink with a more of a vintage print and way prettier

Also in the 80s I bought these ever so cute little girl swimmers and this was before I had my eldest daughter (planning ahead) Both my girls who are near 27 and 23 wore them (photos somewhere) and as you can see I still have them today.Sadly my own grandaughters didnt wear them I think as they had been stored away for so long.
2 years ago my mum gave me this pair that she wore when she was 15 back in the early 60s.I wish I had a pic of her in them I know she does in her album but she is many hours from me.

Think they are 60s and 70s what do you think?
So now I have shared my swimwear peices and frozen my butt of in the process what vintage swimmers do you own?
