The Hammies Bikini is based on one of the original bikini styles from the 1960s. It combines elements from a couple of our favorite vintage finds, such as white rick rack trim, faux button closure in the back of the top, darts, and a vertical two-tone colorway. The body and rick rack are made with 15% stretch to accommodate bodies of all shapes and sizes. The buttons and white contrasting trim match the details of our Smock and Cabana Set and really complete that mid-century look.

The Bikini is our latest and greatest of many pieces that celebrate the exuberant and underappreciated styles from 1950-60s swim style. This is your grandma's bikini!

The Inspiration

 

The History

The history of the swimsuit is a fascinating tale of American and European prudishness of dress starting in the early 20th century. Prior to the 1940s, most women swam in full garb, including dresses, stalkings, boots, and a weight belt to keep them from floating. Men's swimwear was much less oppressive in comparison (essentially a wool onesie until barechestedness became acceptable in the 1930s). The bikini took the fashion stage in the 1930s but didn't gain public acceptance until the 1960s. For the next 40 years, the swimsuit, and the bikini specifically, pushed the limits of American fashion and modesty more than any other wardrobe item.

So cute!

This bikini top is so retro! It is very stretchy. The size chart put me in an LX and that was too big, the girls were coming out of the bottom. I exchanged for a large and it’s perfect. I wear a 36G or 38DDD bra.

Great quality

Amazing quality!! The swimsuit is super thick and is a flattering cut. It’s so cute on. My only complaint would be the sanitary sticker they used was too sticky and it took me a good hour to peel a million tiny stickies off when the paper ripped.. other than that it’s an amazing swimsuit and will definitely buy more when I can!
