The many dedicated fifties designers on the market have full on pin-up style swimwear all sewn up, but for those of us with less of a budget or less occasion to go all out there's fifties influenced styles to be found in some unusual places.
This Bodyshaping Swimsuit from La Redoute is a simple piece, but features plenty of vintage influence. The bodyshaping structure helps to create a great hourglass silhouette, a must for fifties beachwear looks. With a halter strap, sweetheart neckline and bow detailing at the bust, a simple onepiece is transformed into a cute retro item for regular wear.
It's available exclusively online from La Redoute for £45.
