Romance One Piece Swimsuit by Jets Black 2012 Swimwear
This late 1950s swimsuit from Catalina has several features that were popular in the 1950s. Plaid fabric was popular in the very early 50s, and then again near the end of the decade. Boy legs, which gave the swimsuit the look of a play suit were also popular. And the suit has dressmaker touches, such as rick-rack trim and button decoration. Often, these had matching skirts to wear over the swimsuit.
To break up a boy-shaped figure, women should look for suits with “enhancing” elements, says swimwear designer and expert Lourdes Hanimian of Luli Fama. “Tops with cleavage-enhancing padding are ideal. Bikini bottoms should sit lower on the hips and must have a flirty embellishment such as string ties or ruffles.” One-piece monokinis with side cutouts will also create the illusion of an hourglass figure, notes Lourdes.
