Vintage Swimming ;)


Here is a vintage advertisement for Eastman Chromspun fabrics. I wish these bathing suits were still the style. I think I would feel much better about myself at the pool if I had this on. This is the outfit that all the highschool girls wear to the mall on the weekend, ha. . . and to think it used to be considered a bathing suit. Wow, what will our bathing suits look like in 50 more years?

The fact that that is now a mall outfit is a scary thought. I struggle with this kind of thing. As a man, it is hard not to look. As a Christian I try not to. It is hard to take up my cross and follow Him. I won't be around for fifty more years and I wonder if the world will be. But if it is I'm sure things will be a lot worse. Have a nice day.

Girl - You have a model body and I'm sure you look great in any type of swim wear!

This swimsuit from Victoria's Secret reminds me of that style. I've been coveting it for months, but it's only in size 6 and up. Frustrating. Oh, and it's a little pricey. But we're officer's wives, right? We're rolling in the dough! ;)

That link didn't quite fit. It's on victoriassecret.com in the swim section under "one piece suits." It's the Carmen Marc Valvo Retro one-piece swimsuit. You should be able to find it!
