Vintage Swim Caps

Now that we’ve finally entered summer, it’s time to focus on what’s really important this season- vintage swim caps!  Back when women invested lots of time in rollers sets, swim caps were not just a fabulous fashion statement but a necessary part of glamour maintenance.  I think today’s woman spends equally as much time, if not more so, on hair color and styling processes so why not help them last longer with “Old Hollywood” style?   Some brands to search for are Kleinert’s, Jantzen and Playtex which you can find on cool specialty sites like Glamoursurf as well as from various sellers on Etsy, but act fast because they sell quickly!   There are even “retro style” caps being manufactured today which give a similar look and feel without the higher price tag.  Just be sure and do some research because they can often be mislabeled and you don’t want to pay vintage prices for something that really only costs around $12 – 14.

Above are some hot styles from Glamoursurf and below from various sellers on Etsy (LOVE the hot pink cap with fab 60’s original box from DrStrangeGoods!)

Below are some adorable retro style caps that come in lots of fun colors available at www.allswim.com
