Celebrities in Retro Swimsuits

While the skimpy bikini may have been the “it” swimsuit in the past, vintage-loving girls like Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry have helped make this more modest (but still super sexy) style popular again.

The reasons to love retro swimsuits are endless, but the best reason is that the 1960s style looks ah-mazing on a variety of body types. You may not have a curvy, pin-up girl frame, but a high-waisted bottom or slight tummy ruching can definitely help you channel your inner Bettie Page. Plus, retro style embraces kitschy, carefree fun — and really, isn’t that what summer is all about?
