Her line, The Red Dolly, consists of pin up and retro style swimsuits. The suits are created with styles from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s in mind, ranging from simple black one-piece suits to itsy bitsy polka dotted bikinis.
Vintage bathing suits typically left far more to the imagination than the suits worn by women today. Shorts covering the bum and part of the thigh, high-cut halter tops and low-cut backs are popular components of a one-piece retro style bathing suit.
For a retro two-piece bathing suit, it’s common for the bottoms to cover the belly button and even part of the thigh, while the top reveals far less cleavage than a string bikini you’d find in stores today. These retro styles are some of the reasons why The Red Dolly has such popular bathing suits.
Swimsuit colors available in The Red Dolly swimwear boutique range from simple and basic to flashy and bright. Basic blacks, bold primaries, contrasting polka dots and fancy plaid are all available at The Red Dolly boutique. If you’re looking to stand out on the beach or poolside, the two-toned leopard print and black one-piece.
One pieces, two pieces and even a yellow polka dot bikini are all available in what appears to be an endless variety of styles, prints and colors. If you’re extra bold and looking for something that is guaranteed to stand out from the crowd, there is a denim bikini with the sides cut out, crafted especially for the bold girl who wants to shine.
The Red Dolly takes custom orders on many suits, so if you are looking for a suit in a specific size or fabric, Heather will take the specifications and make a suit that customizes you, your body and your style perfectly. If your receive your suit in the mail and it is not as described in the product description, returns are accepted.
