The PinUp Girl's Swim Suit

Bridget Jones made the retro comeback for her scene with the infamous "Granny Panties."  High waisted swim suits or as some men like to call "Granny Panties" are a very elegant and feminine look taking us back to the 1940's and 50's.  I was pleased to see the pinup style swim suit this year circulating in the fashion magazines.  Thank god!  The "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Wheenie Bikini"  that leaves nothing for the imagination has now transformed our beaches into the "Slender Whender Wonderful One-Piece."  I was lucky to score a beautiful black and cream eyelet swim suit from this lovely vintage store in Jamaica Plain, MA called Cafe Society
