What Houzz contributors are saying:

What a fun use of vintage swimsuits in home design! The matching frames and mats bring this collection of fashion art together into a cohesive display.
This framed vintage bathing suit collection is such a fun, quirky way to decorate with beach cottage style.
Kasey Buick added this to Five Tips for Dressing your Naked Wall
Let me tell you.....I will be heading to the flea market today after seeing the way these vintage suits are displayed. These could have been great grandma Ethel's suits...but the way the family has them as monikers...is one of the best idea's I have seen in a long time. Perfect if you had a Beach house or Lake cabin. This wall is literally dressed now.
Between Naps on the Porch added this to Collections: Display That Which You Love...
When displaying your collection, odd numbers like 3 or 5 seem to be more pleasing to the eye. How wonderful that these vintage swimsuits are here to be viewed and enjoyed instead of stuck in a drawer somewhere.
Functional items quickly become artistic displays when framed, such as this collection of vintage bathing suits...
Becky Harris added this to 20 Spectacular Beach Houses
Or wait, was Simone the first Aussie to let us into her Australian beach house? Either way, we're grateful to both Sarah and Simone for letting us see all of their creative design moves, use of vintage items, and beautiful settings.
Take a cue from Brisbane-based blogger Beach Vintage and frame a collection of vintage swimming costumes. It's quirky and charming and would certainly make any visitor smile! Or, put your own spin on it by framing whatever personal mementos you have on hand; matchbooks or coasters from vacations would have a graphic appeal when framed in a grid.
These cheerful vintage bathing suits are an interesting conversation starter in the dining room of an Australian beach cottage. Their color palettes add to the nautical theme.See the rest of this home
Sports apparel becomes instant art with the addition of a simple frame. This collection of framed vintage swimsuits is unexpected and feminine.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Give Your Home a History by Telling Your Story
Don't these swimsuits make you want to dig out some of your mom's old clothes? I especially love how they go from smaller to larger — a knowing nod to the unfortunate consequences of gravity. If your mom's attic is empty, try thrift stores. They're a great source for instant history, and they're probably where your mom's stuff went anyway. Think about replicating this idea with family sports jerseys, military uniforms or even shoes.
The rising popularity of the items has made them pricier; you can find swimsuits from the 1970s and 1980s for under $100, but suits from the 1920s can cost as much as $500. But Fierro says the construction of the earlier pieces makes them enduring keepsakes. “The old fabrics and construction methods are so superior,” she says. “If you care for them properly, they will last.”She adds that the investment is in a cheer-building statement piece. “When displayed in rooms, swimsuits are visual eye candy,” says Fierro. “There’s something about them that just makes people happy.”
