LAST SLIDE

Slideshow: Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Sandra Dee, and More Vintage Babes in Swimsuits

If you need to be sold on the whole retro swim trend, look no further than pictures of generously proportioned (by today's modeling standards!) bombshells like Liz Taylor, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, and Jayne Mansfield. Both demure and seductive, these high-waisted bikinis and halter one-pieces looked perfect paired with strappy wedges or kitten heels — a poolside ensemble that holds a certain enduring appeal. Click through our slideshow to see photos of these ladies, and a nice selection of regular women, as they bask in the sun with beach balls, surfboards, and, in one instance, Elvis.
