Ah the 1950s. If you're a regular reader of the blog you'll know that this is my favourite decade of them all. When it came to swimwear layers were in and tropical prints were all the rage. And the cut was low, covering the hip (in those days clothes worked with your body, not against it) and celebrated the fuller hourglass figure. Think Sophie Loren, Marilyn Monroe and balmy evenings on the French Riviera. Wonderful.
