Swimwear Saturday: Esther Williams Two Pieces

Hey all!  Since I was not able to photograph the rest of my bathing suit collection this summer (it WASN'T pool weather ::tear::) and my posting became sporadic due to an unpredictable schedule, my last swimsuit post of 2015 is not only today, but I am combining two suits!  They are both Esther Williams two pieces, so it is appropriate!  
Brand: 
Esther Williams
I found both of these on eBay, but it's easy to find this brand and this exact style of suit on both ModCloth and Unique Vintage.  Both stores have really good sales on these suits too!

What I like about this suit:
It's so old world sexy.  I enjoy high waisted suits so much, because they make me feel like Ginger from Gilligan's Island.  

Quality Control:
Very great material, silky to the touch, and even fabric that is somewhat slimming.

Problem Areas:
Just like in my first ever Swimwear Saturday involving a one piece suit by Esther Williams, I'm not in love with how the button outlines my shape.  It feels a little...cut off in a weird place.  I'd say I like the fit better on the one piece too; something about high waisted swimwear--as much as I love it--cuts my torso at a weird area too.  But it's not that bad at all.  I also wish this suit had underwire as it's slightly flattening.
To leave this post...and series (until next swim season)...I'm leaving with you with me trying to recreate one of my favorite iconic photos, featuring my favorite spirit animal...Grace Kelly.  One of the reasons I wanted the white bikini is because of this photo.  Enjoy!
And one without my eyewear:
Happy fall!

  1. How beautiful are these swimsuits!!! You look amzing! I loved both, and the pictures (and Grace Kelly's pose), and my favorite one is the white one! Really like other eras, with swimsuits that were so beautiful - the way I prefer them to be!

  3. I really love high-waisted bikini bottoms. Actually, they are the only ones I buy:) You look amazing in both floral print and white suits. So retro chic. Love the connection you made to Grace Kelly:)
