Retro Swimwear by For Luna & Give Away!

I recently discovered this awesome retro swimwear online boutique through Tatty Bo Jangles.  Which i am now on their approved supplier directory, might i just add, see here.

As soon as discovered For Luna retro swimwear i had to tell the world about it, i tweeted, i posted on Facebook.  Why hadn't i heard of them before, i thought i had my finger on the retro pulse! I straight away emailed them, as i wanted them to feature them in my blog.  I got an email back right away from Vicki their managing director.  Offering a give away prize for my lovely fans and readers.  Details to follow at the end of the post .. so carry on reading!


For Luna was launched in May 2009 as a sister-website to La Magia. Having established ourselves as one of the top luxury lingerie websites in the UK, we wanted to extend our sense of style and passion for quality to the swimwear market. And so For Luna was born.



Our aim is to bring glamour, sophistication and femininity to the beach. We take inspiration from a time when ladies carried themselves with a grace and poise which seems to have been largely lost in a culture where almost nothing is left to the imagination!


 All our swimwear has been chosen because it harks back to this image of the beach belle. Whether it is an out-and-out faux vintage swimsuit, or a modern bikini with retro-style print, we have carefully selected pieces that offer elegance and style.


Vicki then went on to tell me in her email.  "In terms of our inspiration, we just feel that modern day swimwear leaves little to the imagination, and I have a yearning for all things sophisticated and glamorous so I wanted to apply this to swimwear. I wanted to provide swimwear for women of all ages, shapes and sizes to feel and look amazing in, and our feedback over the years has told us that we are doing exactly that. It is all about empowerment, as a new mother to a 7 month old baby boy I love our swimwear because it makes my tummy disappear and I feel like a glamour puss in my swimsuits rather than wishing I was still slim enough to wear my bikinis!"


So all you have to do to enter is head over to For Luna's website and post a comment on this blog post as to which suit is your favorite and why.  You must also share this blog post either on your blog, facebook page or tweet about it.  Or even better do all three!  Winner will be drawn at random and drawn out of a vintage hat.  All entries must be received by 30th April 2011 at midnight UK time.  



The winner will win a costume of their choice, in their size.  Your details will be sent to Vicki, who can help you chose the cossie of your dreams!

The winner will be announce both here and my Facebook page on 2nd May 2011.  So make sure you follow my blog or 'like' me on facebook.

Head over to For Luna's facebook page and become a fan, to keep up to date with new styles and new photoshoots.



Good Luck!

  2. it's got to be the cherry swimsuit! Ah it's gorgeous! And don't get me started on modern day swimsuits, I actually feel embarrassed to go swimming, most girls look like they've just come off an FHM shoot.
    Anyway.. Boo Boo Kitty Couture, great post (love your dresses too!)
    For Luna, beautiful costumes, if only this fashion completely took over once again :) x

  3. Mine is the Black and White Polka Dot swimsuit! Am also Tweeting about it and will post on FB!! I did a post a couple of months ago about these gorgeous swimsuits- love them!

  4. Argh, I soooo need a vintage style swimsuit. I dont swim cause I refuse to wear something non vintage but have never been able to find anything instore in Australia.
    My fav is definitely the blue cherries all in one. But maybe black would make me look slimmer???? So maybe the black polkadots???!!

    I added this giveaway to my giveaways page- konadlicious.blogspot.com. I dont Twitter or Facebook but my giveaway page gets lotsa hits ;)

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  5. Definitely the Black and White Polka Dot Retro swimsuit! I have been looking everywhere for swimsuits like these but can never afford them! If only swimsuits today were anything like these, I find the modern ones much too revealing for me personally.
    Gorgeous swimsuits for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  6. I simply love the red retro swimsuit. The coulour is just so intense and would be beautiful with my dark hair and an excotic flower. And as it isn't really swimsuit'y it would be so easy to dress it up as a top in the evening and woosh out for a drink with some hansome fella... hmm I think I have to buy this one;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. My favourite has to be the first one! I'm a sucker for polkadots :) It's cute and sexy without being trashy and too revealing (like most modern style swimsuits!). Also good for us girls that don't like their stomach on display.

  8. Blue swimsuit, all the way! Ahoy there, sailor! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  9. My friend has the Esther Williams suit, it's pretty! (but it was too small for her so she had to sell it :/) I guess I couldn't decide which I really like the best, but perhaps the leopard bikini...

    ps.Turrrbocherry will tweet.

  15. My favourite is the white cherry one! It's gorgeous. Oh, I'd love to win that!

    Because it's the closest they've got to Marilyn Munroe's famous white swimsuit. (Hey, they should make a white one next season!)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Did my first comment work?

    I like the white cherries swimsuit because they remind me of Marilyn Munroe's famous white swimming costume!

    ReplyDelete

  18. I love all of the halter neck tankini designs! As they are both retro and vintage but with a modern twist, they look amazing and are timeless pieces!

  19. This year, i WILL have a retro swimsuit! I love the red one peice with the white polka dots! Red goes well with my black hair and I'm a sucker for polka dots!

    ReplyDelete
  20. So happy you are all loving our swimsuits :) We tried the white retro bikini previously and found it tough because people are very concerned that the fabric will become transparent. This would never happen with our swimsuits, but convincing people of that can be very difficult! Maybe in the future we'll try again though. Vicki x

  21. I looooove the leopard print swimsuit! I've been looking for one forever and ding ding ding now we have a winner! I will also tweet about this as missoliviarouge!

    ReplyDelete
  22. My favourite is the solid red bikini! Sooo cute. <3

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the retro bikini in either red or black!
    They're awesome and I love the skirty style bottoms. :)

    love Stef www.facebook.com/pinupstephaniejay

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh they're all great, it's very hard to decide on a favourite. I would choose the red polka dot one piece as a halter is best for my boobs, or the leopard bikini for when I'm feeling slimmer. Can imagine the girls from Grease wearing all these, which is a winner for me!

    Have tweeted this post @FHCShopping

  25. Prefer swimsuits to bikinis, and something different to navy style... and love white for swimming costumes, so the cherry swimsuit is my choice!! (http://www.forluna.co.uk/94-blue-retro-cherry-print-swimsuit)

    Just shared!! Good luck everybody! http://www.facebook.com/sescun

  27. I cannot make up my mind I love both the one piece black polka dot and the cherry print swimsuit.

  28. I just got rid of so many bathing suits and am in desperate need of new ones- and this is such a perfect website. They're all so pretty but my favorite is the Purple Skirted Bandeau and the Navy Vintage Swimsuit. I would totally love to win, they're all beautiful- thank you so much for hosting a giveaway!!

    I tweeted it here

  29. I can't decide!!!!! I think it has to be the cherry bikini.....or the red bikini....or the polka dot swimsuit....aarrghh, it's just too hard!
    I MUST have one, because I MUST do a photo shoot this summer in a paddling pool with a puppy and an ice cream as my accessories...and to look amazing whilst doing this, I MUST be wearing one of these swimsuits...it is essential I'm afraid. The fate of this shoot is in your hands...no pressure.

  30. I love the cherry bathing suit... but have to say my favorite one is the black with the polka dots. They are so fun and daring. I think we lose our daring as we age, and I for one don't want to lose that. I am just now getting into the vintage scene and am overwhelmed at times at how much I want. This would be perfect. We have an awesome photographer here, Ren and Golden Era, and his wife Dahlia, and I am sure they both would think the same.... so that is my vote.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love this. I am new to the vintage scene, so I don't have a lot to my wardrobe and so many things in my *I gotta have this* list. I think that my favorites are, as it is too hard to narrow it down... the cherry print, the solid red, and my all time favorite is the black with white polka dots. Love it.... I am soon doing a photo shoot at Golden Era here with Ren and his wife Dahlia Calor and I am sure they both would agree with my choices... maybe. Love this line.

  32. My favourite is the Black and White Polka Dot Retro Swimsuit, simple, classic, stunning :D

    I've been looking for one like it every since I saw Scarlet Johansson wearing a very similar one on the cover a magazine, posing as Woody Allen's "muse":

  50. Ah this is amazing!
    My favorite would be the Blue Retro Cherry Print Swimsuit because I have yet to see someone wear cherries on their bathing suit & it's different but extremely cute! Also, I don't like showing off too much of my body so the one piece detail is a plus ;) I love it.
