The Glory of the Vintage 1930s Beach Pajama

Perhaps one of my favorite summertime outfits are vintage beach pajamas. So comfortable, usually consisting of a one-piece like jumpsuit with wide legs and easy breezy fabrics.This past week we've been looking at beach pajamas and their beginnings from the very late 20s to their popularity in the early 1930s.

Some of these images you may have seen before on our blog, but it certainly can't hurt to share them again. I'm always on the hunt for information relating to them.


 1931 detail - Patou

They really are for fun, play and sports. This advert shows they even can be worn for 'sport' while on vacation at the beach. And Patou always catches my eye!


Lawn Bowling anyone? ACK! Those polka-dots, fabulousness! circa 1935


1930s Lido Girls


They really are figure flattering for many body types. But, as with anything vintage, they are getting harder and harder to come by.

We did just list a pair of vintage beach pajamas by Anteme - Fruit of the Loom over at Glamoursurf.
Let's take a look at a couple of the ads from Fruit of the Loom. Both of these are from the early 30s.

1930s Beach Pajamas

Fabulous fabric too, nice and lightweight cotton batiste. Love it when I can find old artwork and ads that match the labels of vintage fashion we bring you. Hmmm, I may just have to wear a pair of these today.
