1950's Era Atomic Wasp Waist Swim Suit - 5 Styles
The Wasp Waist Swim Suit
What is a wasp waist? Originated in the 1800's where corsets were meant to give women of the period the appearance of a tiny waist, a size 14 inch waist was not unheard of on a mature woman. It was a painful and dangerous practice. Fast forward to the 1950's the wasp waist revival came back but in a different way, out went the corset and in came the belt and shape wear undergarments, much like we have today. The same body silhouette could be achieved, small waist which would emphasize the hips and bust. No matter what your body shape is, how ever big or small, just add a belt to anything and you have an instant "wasp" waist look. The fashion reached it's peak in the 50's and it was the age of the Atomic bomb. We can see how print on fabrics represented the Atomic age in it's stream line designs, modern prints for the modern woman.
Here we have a one piece swim suit, reminiscent of the Atomic age. Vintage style with sweat heart neck line. Adjustable spaghetti shoulder straps. Netting above the bust. Vertical Stream line contrasting panels and over the bust. The Reverse is a solid color. Low back. High Leg and bottom coverage, will cover half your cheeks.
