The most amazing retro swimsuits of 2012 are evocative of the suits seen on 1950s pinup girls, a throwback to a more glamorous age with modern twists that bring them into the now. Forget skimpy little string bikinis, or suits that look like teeny triangles stitched together with a few pieces of floss and a promise.

Lots of retro swimsuits 2012 style incorporate polka dots. That's a retro trend if ever there was one. This is one of my favorites, because no one does vintage charm like ModCloth. In classic tradition, the top is a halter, which provides a lot of flattering lift, and the bottoms have a signature high waist that creates a gorgeous shape while hiding any problem areas. It's also incredibly festive, and provides a lot of coverage for a two piece suit.
