    I am feeling EVERYTHING about this photo! First, I love the cut and design of the bathing suit. Next I am LOVING how the blue from the beach chair pops from the dull color of the sand. I like how the photographer was about to capture (a) texture, (b) design, and (c) a piece of the fashion of the time.

    I love this. Memories just came crashing in ….my dear mother, late 1960′s, the beach along Lake Michigan. My brothers and sister and I digging sand castles next to her. Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Could have been her. Could have been us. Thank you!!! xox kcm

    I know women didn’t have as many rights as they do now and I know minorities were exploited, but if I could live in any other decade besides the present it may be this era b/c of her aura – so cool.

    Yes, there was a time when women wanted to look great and glamourous even at the beach!!
    I think that’s missing a bit today. Is it a crime to put your mascara and lipstick on before you leave the house in the morning?
    Is it necessary to go buy bread almost in pijamas? Of course I don’t go for a walk all dressed up, but if I love leaving the house the way I like seeing myself in the morning.

    This was a time when women were allowed, even expected, to have some weight on their bodies. Take a look at her thighs and hips and arms compared to how thin and “toned” they all strive to be today. This woman looks healthy and gorgeous. Wouldn’t it be great if fashionistas – both leaders and followers – stopped obsessing and insisting that women have stick-thin bodies?

      i can’t agree more. While reading the comments I couldn’t help myself thinking that – sadly – nowadays this woman would be considered overweight and would not be able to wear most of the “hop designers” clothes.
      She is/was gorgeous, and confident, and healthy.

        This woman is a bit heavy only from the POV of a tiny fraction of the American public. Compared to most of today’s women, she is actually quite slender!

    tough look..along with the cigarettes butts

      It’s so true what you observe that no one else has commented on. This is a tough look – she is the beach goddess on her adirondack throne absorbing all the sunlight and looking defiantly spectacular even though a suntan and cigarettes butts may not be images that belong to perfectly ideal health.

    Wonderful colours. My mother was a teenager in the 50s, she always said that the clothes then were about making women look attractive (I think she meant sexy!) but without showing off too much flesh, so clothes were made to fit and flatter a woman’s shape (ie breasts, hips, bottom, thighs…)

    I love the tan lines on her feet from her shoes – probably heels? :) Glamorous and gorgeous.
