Summer Swimsuits

Bathing suits are not to be feared, trust us.

July 30, 2015

There is quite possibly no article of clothing more electrifying than the bathing suit. What other scrap of fabric has the power to elicit protests (from Pope Pius XII, 1951), inspire love (Bond girl Ursula Andress, 1962), and send legions of women into change rooms, cowering in abject fear (time immemorial)? Whether you lean toward a bikini or full-piece, off-the-shoulder or thong, they’re not arguing that the suit holds power—be it for miracles (Miraclesuit.com) or subtle change (Vancouver’s Nettle’s Tale). Dive in at the city’s new Brit-based Ted Baker boutique in Pacific Centre where pretty swimsuits hail from across the Pond (Tedbaker.com).
