{Inspiration} 1950s - 60's swimwear

When trying to find the perfect bikini I can never seem to draw myself away from those classic 1950's pin up shapes with high waisted pants and halterneck tops to enhance a skinny waist and exaggerate your bust, its just the most feminine, sexy look ever, and no one did it better than Marilyn Monroe in that white one piece with bold red lips!
(My grandma used to live by the beach and I've seen countless black and whites of her with her perm and pearls in a figure hugging one piece, she was such a glamorous lady)
