Black Cat Bikinis Breathes New Life into the Vintage Game

Black Cat Bikinis is a retro and custom swimwear boutique in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA. The company is the brainchild of Joanna Borres, who has lived in sunny Florida her whole life. Despite the ubiquity of retro swimwear and bikinis in Florida, Borres could never find one that fit her properly. She was tired of always having to get her swimsuits altered, so she decided to start making her own.

Borres believes that all women are beautiful, and she loves creating bathing suits that make them feel beautiful. An accomplished designer, she creates all of her patterns from scratch, and she is more than willing to draw up new patterns for customers whose figures demand it.

Black Cat Bikinis sells its own line exclusively. The tops and bottoms are sold separately to ensure that both pieces fit perfectly. The bikinis are not inexpensive, though the prices are more than reasonable for high-quality custom-made swimwear.

Borres is a truly gifted designer. Unlike other vintage-inspired brands, Black Cat Bikinis’ swimsuits are legitimately sexy. The bottoms are high-waisted and come down over the upper thighs, and the tops are full-coverage. Very little skin is on display, but the swimwear are so purely fun that the move toward modesty barely registers.

 

The one-pieces are equally sexy, with plunging necklines and eye-catching patterns. Full-figured ladies will be thrilled to learn that a fair amount of Black Cat Bikinis’ bathing suits feature underwire construction. Borres takes advantage of her larger canvases by using fabrics with large prints and uncommon colors.

Even the cover-ups from Black Cat Bikinis are sexy. These are not the typical ponchos and over-sized t-shirt dresses. These cover-ups are flirty skirts with wrap-around closures and thigh-high slits up the sides. Black Cat Bikinis is one of the only beach brands to produce cover-ups that do not hide curves under loose fits.

Borres and her team make all of the swimsuits to order, so delivery takes up to 4 weeks. As a perk, Borres is happy to alter all swimsuits if they do not fit perfectly. All orders should be placed via the website. Other vintage brands make bikinis for coy, winsome women. Black Cat Bikinis is for women who have modern sensibilities but are not done justice by contemporary swimwear trends.

The shop’s humble beginnings began on Myspace and led to a boutique shop on Etsy. Now it functions as an online independent retro and rockabilly swimwear store. The designer of the shop, Shay, knew she wanted a fashion career but she wasn’t sure what exactly. Before her online ventures, she started her career designing bikinis and lingerie for exotic dancers. Now her shop focuses on fun and flirty designs and consists only of retro inspired swimsuits and halter tops.

Sugar Doll pieces have the perfect mix of contemporary and vintage style. The tops and bottoms, which can be mixed and matched, come in classic patterns, such as stripes, animal print and gingham. High quality materials, like lace and heart-shaped buttons, are placed with purpose. This swimwear collection is fun for every rockabilly beauty or girly girl of all ages.

Even though this retro swimwear line is not as revealing as most two piece bathing suits, something about them still scream sexy. The combination of high waisted bikini bottoms and halter tops accentuate a woman’s assets, and together they allow women to look and feel confident.

High-waisted bathing suits are flattering for most bodies, since a woman’s stomach is flattened and most midsection imperfections are hidden. Women who appreciate the fun and flirty retro style make this style of swimwear look good. You have to embody the pinup and retro persona in order to pull these swimsuits off.

The shop has a small collection, which allows anyone who purchases items from this store to own something unique. The creativity behind designing just bikini tops, bottoms and halter tops is masterful, so without a doubt, keeping this collection to a minimum was deliberately done. The small selection available in the store keeps the designs and pieces cohesive.Anyone can tell the designer aims to please a specific audience.

If you are a woman who is inspired by retro and vintage fashion, Sugar Dolls Retro and Vintage swimwear deserves a spot in your closet. If pinup clothing is your go-to look on a daily basis, what you wear to the beach or pool should be no different.
