Mmm! Summer swimwear! And 1930s swimwear at that! I thought you might enjoy welcoming Summer with these couple of pages from a 1934 catalog. It’s almost impossible for me to choose a favorite from this page… A! No, G!, No, H! Ok, I’ll take them all ;)
Check out these bathing caps! Notice anything unusual? Is that a marcel wave bathing cap I spy? The “Bathing Beret” is also quite fun. And check out the straps on the second pair of bathing sandals!
Not to neglect the kiddies- they’re looking pretty darn cute in their swimwear, and the adjustable straps on the “All-Wool Zephyr” is pretty cute!
Pretty please, won’t someone make a modern swimwear line and borrow these lines from the past to satisfy those of us who long for cute one pieces with an old timey twist? And heck, sign me up for a marcel wave swim cap, while you’re at it, too.
