Vintage Rubber Swim Caps

This ad for Howland ribber swim caps dates to 1956. The perfect way to keep your 'wave' dry while swimming. Swim Caps came in a variety of colors and textures. Some even have three dimensional floral petals and designs. We're listing some lovely vintage Swim Caps on Glamoursurf this week. Here are just a few of our favorites to come.

Which is your favorite?

OOOOH!! I love all these caps, but if I had to choose, the shaggy pink, lime and blue one is amazing! Thanks for sharing, I'm glad I found your blog and I'm happily following now!!

I remember being forced to wear an ugly white swim cap in junior high swim class. If they had let us wear some of these caps, class would have been so much more fun! I think I like the last one best...

Thanks for sharing!
