Summer is here and that means it’s time to bite the bullet and find a bathing suit. Every girl needs at least one good bathing suit to wear to the beach, the pool, or the lake. If you are dreading bathing suit shopping this year, you’re not alone. Most of us feel like a firing squad would be less torture than the dressing room mirrors and bright lights on our winter white thighs. Luckily, this year’s style is all about retro which means extra coverage for all the places you need to hide. Here are 7 retro swimsuits to heat up your summer. Try one or try them all to find a beautiful beach style that suits you and your body type.

1 Diving Miss Daisy

Diving Miss DaisyPrice: $89.99 at So cute! I love the vintage-inspired daisy print, and the fun, vivid colors! This suitie is modest enough for almost any body type, and would look darling with a retro-styled cover-up and floppy straw sun-hat.

2 Play It Pool Swimsuit

This Italian inspired bikini is a perfect choice for women who are smaller on top. The ruffles are a fun accent that will add some volume to a flat chest. It can also work to balance out wider hips to create the illusion of that classic hour glass figure we all wish for. And since the top and bottom are sold separately, you can be sure you'll get a perfect fit!
