Vintage Inspired Swimwear: 2012 Edition

Can you believe that 2012 is already a quarter of the way over?  This year is flying by, and even though it feels early, it's time for swimsuit shopping.  Every year I receive some sort of request regarding swimwear, and where to find cute vintage-inspired looks.  I've decided to keep the trend going, and updated my yearly roundup of pinup style swimwear.

Honestly, I think looks like this will always be sexy:

 I couldn't resist including Gidget and Moondoggie!

Personally, I adore my ruched halter-style swimsuit and feel super confident when I wear it.  I get lots of compliments, and my husband likes it better than a two-piece.  I'll be rocking my same suit again this year, and can't recommend it enough. 

I invested in the Esther Williams bathing beauty one-piece from Modcloth and it is worth every penny of $89.  The fabric is extremely thick and forgiving if you've got, as Bridget Jones would say, some wobbly bits, and the ruching hides many a sin (or food baby).  While I wouldn't wear it for a triathlon or anything, the top offers plenty of support and I don't find myself reaching for a cover-up every time I move.  (Go up a size if you order it, as the hundreds of 5 star reviews recommend) 

There are tons of similar options around the internet, with J.Crew offering an impressive selection this year:

Modcloth and Piperlime also have some great looks, in a wide range of sizes:

And finally, if you're hard to fit (or just boobtastic) you should check out Figleaves where many of the suits are sized to fit up to a G cup.

Whew, that was a lot of suits!  I think some of the brands may have gotten a bit mixed up, but I tried to make sure every piece is still available in a range of sizes. 

Which one is your favorite?  Are you a fan of the vintage trend, or more comfortable in other styles?  Let me know!
