I was so amazed to see my Nana's picture here on Pinterest and that someone else had pinned it.

The sun has been out for a whole week. Nearly all the snow has melted and I planted out my veggie patch at the weekend. I think I can officially say that spring is here :) As the weather has gotten warmer and my many layers of woolly jumpers have come off I have been surprised at how much of the padding was me and not wool. It appears that, like a good little seal pup, I fattened up to help keep warm over the winter so now that spring is here some damage control is called for before the summer wardrobe will get an airing (or fit). So it is off to the swimming pool for me. In Japan when you go to a swimming pool everyone must wear a swim cap. Mine is bright red an makes me look like a rooster which generally adds to the love I have for my swimming outfit (please read in a sarcastic tone). On top of the aesthetic value, or lack there of, my swim cap is pretty useless as the Japanese wear them to keep hair out of the pool not to keep your hair dry so you still emerge from the swimming pool looking like a chlorine soaked rat. They say all fashions come back around and so I am putting this out there for the fashion powers that be to take note and bring back the amazing swim caps of yesteryear. What do you guys think? Dead and buried or due a revival?

A blog with a daily splash of vintage swimwear, vintage fashion, news, designer profiles and all things retro
Yesterday, Freddy and I spent the day strolling down Haight Street ... very slowly, might I add, being as how my knee is slightly out of commission. And as usual, we wandered into La Rosa Vintage Boutique, one of my favorite vintage stores of all time. I was hell-bent on not trying on any clothes, for fear of twisting the knee ... but that thought went out the window when I came across a perfect little pile of vintage swimsuits! Yes ... it's rather cold in San Francisco. And yes ... I'm probably the palest person on this side of the Mississippi. But I couldn't resist. And as you can see, this adorable little "Granny Apple Green" number made it home with me, and is resting sweetly on one of my Nana's dainty satin hangers. So as usual, I sat down and did a bit of research on the brand. It's a Catalina swimsuit... And as you can see from this vintage ad, they were all the rage in the 30's, 40's and 50's. Their slogan was, "Styled for the Stars of Hollywood." They were modeled by Bettie Davis, Joan Blondell, Olivia de Havilland, and no other than Norma Jean herself. The coolest ads that I've found are the ones with matching "couple" suits. Can you imagine matching your honey, playing beach volleyball, sipping Coca-Cola ... and frolicking in the waves on a sunny CA day in the 50's? In doing my research I found these pictures on a really cool site called, "Glamour Surf." Check it out if you are interested in starting your own Catalina swimwear collection. They've also got some amazing vintage advertisements for swimwear and the like. Also, the blog "Glamour Splash" if you are interested in daily vintage photos of starlets in fabulous swimwear from days gone by. Oh, and I can't end this blog without telling you about my coolest discovery... The notorious Bettie Page herself is sporting a Catalina swimsuit in the picture below. Love, love - LOVE! :)

I find the women of the 1930's and 1940's more beautiful than the celebrities and models of today. Women in the 1930's and 1940's were strong willed, independent, and loved their bodies no matter what size they were, so instead of looking at Megan Fox wishing you had her body look at these women and wish you had their spirit.

I have talked about the ideal body when it comes to the ideal movie stars, but how about the ordinary woman? Well, slim is pretty much the ideal now and it was the ideal back then too. However, it didn’t mean exactly the same thing as it does today. The thin athletic body that we see on fashion spreads today is not the same as the slim, but still rather curvaceous ideal of the 1940’s. I have no doubt that women back then were concerned about their looks and their weights, but I think the difference between a model and what was considered a normal woman was much smaller than it is today. We are constantly told that people in the Western world are constantly getting bigger, but the models only get thinner. The ideal body 70 years ago was probably much easier to achieve than it is today. Ideal weight and body measurements for a woman of my height, 1.70 centimeters according to my beauty books was: Wight: 60-65 kilos Chest: 88-89 cm Waist: 67-70 cm Upper hips: 87-89cm Lower hips: 92-95 cm This actually is pretty much the numbers for Myrna Loy, who also was 170 cm tall: Weight: 62.5 kilos Chest: 86 cm Waist: 67 cm Lower hips: 92 cm Then consider that the ideal measurements for the same height that model agencies and fitness experts today are: Chest: 86 cm Waist: 60 cm Hips: 86 cm If you consider that 1 cm difference on the waist measurement generally means one kilos difference, then the ideal weight in the 1940’s were 7-10 kilos more than today… Just because I’m curious, I went back in my sewing journal and checked out my body measurements when my weight was 65 kilos: Chest: 102 cm Waist: 72 cm Hips: 98 cm Definitely more than the forties ideal, but then I have always had a very hour-glassed shape. And way, way more than the model ideal of today. So, what advice to my book gives me as to maintain the ideal body? A) Make sure you maintain a good blood circulation with the help of exercise walks and massage. B) Eat food in proper proportions, of good and varied quality. C) Make sure you sleep and rest as much as your body need! But, even if the book advices against too much fat in the body, it also strongly advice against too little too! If you are too skinny, then you can cure that with eating many small delicious meals during the day to stimulate the appetite! Sweets, cream and lots of bread are excellent ways to make sure you don’t get too slim! Last, here are some of the 1940’s problem areas, according to a magazine in 1940.
