Vintage Suits by Mary

Vintage Suits by Mary

Vintage suits by Mary is a fabulous U.S.-based online source for high quality, custom fitting swimsuits and playsuits that are a must-have item in any modern pin up girl or rockabilly gal’s wardrobe, and what they deliver is well worth the price.

With fun-in-the-sun play suits like the Army Romper, the Shaheen Style Sarong Set, the Milk Maid Play Suit and the Gingham Farmer’s Daughter Two-piece Play Set, plus swimsuits like the Aqua Hawaiian Sarong Suit, the Flame Sheath and the Orange Blossom Sarong One-Piece Suit for hula girls, Vintage Suits by Mary sells 35 varieties of form-fitting, curved-hugging, period-perfect works of wearable pin up art. They even offer a Cabana Boy set for men living the retro Tiki lifestyle.

As the mother of an athletic diver, Mary began custom-designing and sewing her daughter’s swimsuits instead of buying expensive and unattractive new swimwear for her every few months. Her suits were an instant hit and before too long she was sewing for the whole team so after decades working in the garment industry in swimwear she started Suits by Mary in 1998 and soon expanded it to include her Vintage line.

all shops and brands

With a degree in design and patternmaking Mary knows very well how to create proper fit and form in her swimwear, and at Vintage Suits by Mary one can find more than just curvaceous swimsuits and playsuits: customers can cook and clean fashionably while wearing one of her vintage style aprons, while in the Vintage Deluxe a section Mary will work with you to custom-embellish a vintage or vintage-style suit you already own or to design an original burlesque costume exclusively for you. For glamour girls with $1500 to burn there is a smoking-hot Rhinestone Corset with over 40,000 Swarovski Crystals hand-sewn to cover every inch.

Most Vintage by Mary suits cost from $85 to $100 and are custom made-to-order and take approximately one month to arrive, but some vintage suits are in-stock and will ship immediately. Returns are not accepted, so it is important to carefully check the sizing chart before placing any order. Payment can be made through most major credit cards and PayPal; for international orders customers may contact Vintage Suits by Mary for sizing and shipping options.

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. If you’re a retro girl at heart, check out the shop and dive in to one of the hottest pin up style swimsuits on the market!
