A Touch Of 1940s
Swimsuits with skirts were popular in the 1940s - which tended to be a bit more demure than those

Featuring Oprah Beach Special Favorites: The Slimsuit Swimsuit
(Bet you can't say that 10 times fast!)
The Carol Wior name is synonymous with style and support. Carol Wior's revolutionary line of Ďslimsuits' are designed to flatter the female body with shape hugging style. These beautiful swimsuits visually slim the figure with ingenious cuts, well-placed support and exquisite color palettes. Her patented designs feature hidden under wire bust support for comfort with a natural look. The body construction slims the waist and stomach and smoothes and lifts the buttocks.
Carol Wior suits have been the swimsuit of choice of beauty contestants worldwide. The Carol Wior Twist Front Bandeau swim dress has been featured in Oprah. Her three piece tankini designs provide the same bust support and tummy taming with the versatility of a brief and skirt bottom. This seasonís fresh new one piece styles include a convertible halter in a luscious chocolate brown and a classic black and white design that sculpts the midsection with gentle shirring. Carol Wior swimsuits give woman the confidence and style to look and feel their best.
And Featuring Retro Swimwear by PopinaIt would be fun to say that I "discovered" Popina Swimwear, except that she found me, so there was not much discovering on my part with the exception being that I "discovered" that I love this swimwear! (Aren't I funny). When I was a young Teenie Bopper, the postage stamp swimsuit was "IN" so that's what we wore... and in theory I have nothing against them, especially if you are good at remaining perfectly still for long periods of time.
"Regarding inspiration, I have always loved swimwear of the past and grew up sewing, the beginning of the Popina Swimwear line five years ago was when I was going on vacation to Cancun and could not find a bathing suit that I felt fit well and was flattering. On that trip what would become my Boy Short was and Halter Top were born. Since then I continue to reach to styles of the past for my inspiration, updating the suits with modern fits, style and construction."
<<= Grommet Trim Swim Dress by Delta Burke. Do you remember Delta Burke? She was the funny one on Designing Women - and starred in various Made for TV Movies and as the tabloids informed us, was constantly battling with her weight. Then she married the cowboy hat brother from Simon and Simon. Now she has a successful fashion design business. I like Delta Burke.
