Everyone knows those iconic pin-up girls of the ’50s and ’60s had insanely great bodies—slightly soft, slim yet curvy—so naturally they looked great in bathing suits. And yet I’d argue that those girls often had their swimsuit styles working in their favor to make them look even more amazing, too. Not that I’m discounting their awesome bods, but those retro suits did have some tricks, from the cuts (leg-lengthening, high-waisted bottoms) to the fabrics (curve-flattering ruching). Way less effort than a workout regimen or even a self-tanner session, sliding into one of them would make anyone feel (and look) more bombshell-y instantly. I want one.
