The Perfect Vintage Style Swimwear for Your Summer Holiday

8th Aug 2016

As an online retailer of vintage style clothing, we know many of our customers come to us for a beautiful floral tea dress or to browse our very popular range of Audrey dresses. But, did you know that we have also recently introduced a range of vintage style swimwear - perfect for any summer holiday?

Retro swimwear is a hot trend for this summer and is a really flattering look for everyone. Taking inspiration from old Hollywood, think along the lines of Rita Hayworth in polka dots, Elizabeth Taylor lounging around in stripes, and Esther Williams sitting poolside in her one piece. From stripes to polka dots, one-piece bathing suits to vintage style separates, at Little Wings Factory you can find the vintage inspired swimwear you need to look retro glam this summer.

Polka Dots

Polka dots are a classic pattern that will never go out of style. Reminiscent of good old Minnie Mouse, this pattern is playful and fun and was even seen on the gorgeous Marilyn Monroe - who can forget that photo of her in that polka dot bikini?! Our polka dot styles suit everyone, whether you want a one-piece or a high-waisted bikini style like 'Hannah':


                                           Hell Bunny 'Hannah' Polka Dot 1950s Bikini £26


Gingham is a popular print that harks back to the good old days. It was so popular at one point that Brigitte Bardot wore a pink Gingham dress to get married in, which caused a shortage of the fabric in France! With a really summery feel, these pieces just scream old school glamour.

Floral Prints

Vintage-style prints are always fun to wear, and this floral print is one of the best. Floral prints always work well in summer, especially big blousy florals on a dark background. They perfectly capture the spirit of summer and are so easy to wear – you’ll feel fab in them!


                                                   Hell Bunny 'Cannes' Floral Bikini - £25

One-Piece Swimwear

Having a glamourous one-piece swimsuit is a must for any lady; they are especially flattering on ladies with curves, but suit all body types! With a sweetheart neckline for a vintage feel and gathering at the front to create shape, this style also features additional lining from the hip to the top of the leg for extra comfort.
