Bathing Suit Resource Roundup

I thought it would be fun to create a bathing suit resource roundup, a list of some of our on line colleagues and friends who have some wonderful swimwear sections chock full of information on vintage swimwear or just some beautiful eye candy.

First off is Fuzzy Lizzie; Lizzie has put together a very interesting tour of vintage swimwear from her personal collection. She is also a vintage sportswear aficionado and has a wealth of information and topical articles here.

Next is Angie from Capricorn Vintage. Angie has just recently launched her website and has included a virtual swimsuit museum from some of her past sales. Yummy, yummy!

The Vintage Fashion Guild gives us a nice article on the history of the swimsuit called 'In the Swim'. The VFG also has a comprehensive label directory which includes swimsuit brands.

Bikini Science presents us with a history of the bikini via a virtual time machine.

Galbreath has plenty of pretty pin up pictures of stars in swimwear. Love this site!

Roselyn Hsueh gives us the history of the bathing suit.

On to men's swimwear, David Claudon has put together a fabulous resource on the history of men's swimwear which can be found here.

And yup, then there's Glamoursurf. We have a label directory, a swimwear timeline, many articles on vintage swimwear, and a marvelous selection of vintage swimsuits for men, women and children you to choose from. And of course you can always search our blog here at Glamoursplash as we post daily with vintage swimwear information. Enjoy!
