These Vintage Bombshells Model their Best Swimwear Looks

Summer is the time of seductive swimwear and we are all struggling. How do we find something unique and sexy? Elegant and easy going? Fun and flirty? The perfect swimsuit is a delicate subject, it must flatter the figure while being comfortable and not identical to every other body on the beach. The babes of yore certainly knew how to work it. Here are our favorite iconic film stars modeling retro swimsuits that we are still drooling over today!

Sophia Loren
The Italian, award winning actress and pinup beauty had a body to die for- and one to dress for. The leading lady works her curves in a sophisticated yet seductive one piece and swim shorts, proving that the go to bikini is not always the only choice for the beach.elle-11-sophia-loren-v-xln

Brigitte Bardot
The 1950’s sex symbol was known for her bombshell blonde- and her beach ready bikinis. In a youthful, flirtatious frilled bikini bottom and strapless top, the French actress was surprisingly modern for modeling the look nearly 70 years earlier!elle-30-brigitte-bardot-v-xln

Marilyn Monroe
You can’t mention bikinis without thinking of Marilyn in her iconic white swimsuit picture, but we are in love with this in the moment snap of Marilyn frolicking on the beach in a darker two piece, with the same to die for high waisted bottoms!elle-45-marilyn-monroe-h-lgn

Elizabeth Taylor
There is a reason why she was the sex symbol of her time, and this photo proves it. This look is making us want to rush straight to Topshop and grab a halter bikini top of our own.elle-44-liz-taylor-v-xln

Elke Sommer
The German actress is every inch the bombshell in this strapless bikini, that we are sure she could pull off at the beach today- and the bouffant as well!elle-05-elke-sommer-v-xln
