Summer lovin had me a: Blast from the Past…

Temperatures are rising and so are waistlines on bikini bottoms. A throwback from the 1950s, the high-waisted bikini, is once again rearing it’s ugly head in beaches and pools across the world. While fashionistas may love this retro style, it seems an overwhelming majority of men wished this classic never made a comeback.

From Instagram posts by the girl next door to paparazzi shots of Taylor Swift, the high-waisted bikini is popping up all over the internet. Travel-dating website, polled men in the U.S. to see exactly how they felt about this vintage style. Results of the poll reveal 80 percent of more than 43,000 respondents hate the trend, with many users saying the style is akin to an adult diaper.

Fashion is fun and there is no harm in trying out new styles, but those who are looking for a bit of summer lovin’ might want to avoid this trend!

retro bathing suits

Searching for a new “bathing” suit is different than a “swim” suit!  I HATE THE SEARCH!  It ranks up there with buying jeans and bras.  Just because it’s a “trend” doesn’t mean it suits you and your body shape!  As long as the fashion designers don’t reintroduce plastic flower embellished bathing caps with a snap strap I’m ok with high-waisted bathing suits!!!
