Since I’m down at the shore Tara Gentile of scoutie girl is guest blogging today and shares some indie haute bathing suits – Jen.
Don’t leave your indie style behind when you head out to the pool or beach this summer! You can find handmade swimsuits all over Etsy.
Here are my picks for some great indie suits!
- Mitchelada 3000 by ruffeoheartslilsnoty :: $175
- White Criss-Cross Top and Skirty Bottom Bikini by missbrache :: $98
- Oh La La Maillot — Custom Sized by missbrache :: $115
- Marina – turquoise with orange one piece suit by anazara :: $60
- The Riviera is a Lovely Two Piece Bandeau Swimsuit by ladramaqueen :: $95
Two main styles are prominent: bright colors in innovative designs and retro, pin-up looks. The price for a handmade suit is also very reasonable, considering that you are purchasing a suit that, many times, is tailored to your measurements.
I’m sure you’re thinking about the fact that it’s hard enough to find a great suit in a dressing room let alone online. True, true. My advice would be to go to the store and try on a variety of styles. Think about what works for your body, what kind of coverage you’re looking for, and what kind of materials make you happy.
You can then make an educated decision when you are searching the “racks” of handmade suits online!
