Retro bikini

I quite fancy one of these high waisted 50s style bikinis for the summer, but I'm struggling to find one. Any ideas? I don't want to spend a fortune - up to £50, £60. Any ideas?

Have you tried What Katie Did? I have had fab retro bras/knickers from there, pretty sure they do swimwear too.

is this ok?

Havingkittens Mon 18-Jul-11 16:01:13 might be worth a try.

I've seen a few good ones on the hight street but I'm feeling a little lardy at the moment so I've not made much note of where they were I'm afraid.

What Katie Did are definitely worth a look.

These are the best I've seen, and these are underwired if you need some more support at the bust. For Luna is also definitely worth a look.

I've been bullied off the Pc by my children. I'll check the links soon - but thanks!

Oh, I do like those For Luna ones. What Katie Did is a bit too pointy-boobed and authentic for my taste, but I can see the appeal. Thanks again.

I know! I really want one of the bikinis on there but it's been sold out for ages sad

You could always come to one of our fairs and look for an original..

I happily would Vintazia, if you ever make it up to Yorkshire! Ruislip is a bit of a trek.

That's Surrey, right?
