There’s something romantic about swimming caps and vintage swimming costumes with frills or a matching skirt with tie, isn’t there?
Unfortunately, I can’t recommend any particular brands which consistently manufacture retro-inspired swimming costumes, so do leave a comment below if you have any ideas. But here are a couple of sites that sell retro-inspired swimwear:
