I found this 1950s swimsuit
@sweetbeefinds on Instagram and here on Etsy. Sadly it sold before I finished painting it, but there are many, many great vintage fashions to find in the shop!
The modern day bikini was first introduced July 5, 1946 by designer Louis Reard.

This is an illustration of the swimsuit my mom wore in the late 1960s. I think I’ve even seen it on an episode of
Mad Men. The character Megan Draper was wearing it.
