Modern 1920s-Style Swimsuits Perfect For Any Body

Swimsuits have gotten a whole lot skimpier and sexier since the 1920s, but the variety of styles and cuts available have also increased, so beachgoers can choose to go with a modest one piece or a suit that leaves little to the imagination and still look stylish.

And now the swimsuit has officially gone full circle with the release of the genderless swimsuits with a decidedly 20s vibe released by the Portland, Oregon based company Beefcake Swimwear.

Owner Mel Wells is a self-professed tomboy who wanted to create a swimsuit that both men and women could wear to the beach without looking like a loon, and after a successful Kickstarter campaign by jove she's done it!

Her "Beefcakes" are stylish yet functional, and as she told PopSugar they help beachgoers avoid body shaming too:

"If you look at old photos of people on the beach, [body shame] didn't used to be a part of our culture," she said. "The main excitement [I've heard from people is] 'I've been looking for a swimsuit like this for years.' . . . I think a lot of people are looking for swimwear that is more function than fashion, but not ugly. A lot of performance swimwear is not very fashionable — it's all about performance. And I think there's a lot of people who want something kind of in between."
