I am playing along with Martha at Seaside Simplicity with the meme Flashback Friday.   Come join in on the fun and link up your photo.

I’ve been digging through old photos and found one I’d never seen before of my mom as a teenager.  Swimsuits were so different back then, but oh so feminine.

  • That’s the year I was born….1955….your mom is really small! And very pretty! I wonder what color the bathing suit was.

    • I think it was yellow if I remember what she said right.

  • What a sweet photo! Your Mom was so cute!

  • How beautiful she is and what a sweet swimsuit. This really does make you wish we had more choices in swimwear! Happy Friday!

  • Beautiful photo of your mom! I want to know how the women back then had such teeny tiny waists?!!

    • My older SIL says it was that they always wore belts. They knew the minute they began to put on even an extra ounce because of belted dresses and skirts!

    What a great photo of your mom. She looks so darling..

  • What a sweet image! Sometimes (well, most of the time) I wish those olden styles would come back into fashion.

    Your mom is such a teeny tiny little thing – so cute. The photo reminds me very much of my mom from the same time. I stopped by from Seaside Simplicity.
