Swim Cap Glamour

Jantzen’s® earliest swim caps in the 1920s were knit of wool worsted yarn in shades that matched the color of their swimming suits. The intent was to protect the hair and keep water filters from becoming clogged as swimming pools became popular throughout the country. Gradually swim fashion began to dominate swim function and sparkling colors and striking styles began to emerge. The heyday was seen in the late 1950s as caps with colorful petals, flowers, ruffles and innovative designs came into vogue. The 1960s marked the last decades for demand of swim caps and by the mid 1970s they were no longer required for public pools.

The striking Head Swimmer cap that is featured here was produced by Jantzen® in 1960. It is a strapless cap with a contrasting flower and it retailed for $1.98.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

No matter what your relationship status is, celebrate Valentine’s Day because there is much to love in the world! The color red is linked to love worldwide and at Jantzen® red has been our signature color over 100 years. The rationale behind this red-hot color is that a lady in red always looks timeless, elegant and glamorous. And men have been writing songs and poetry about it for decades.

So, whether you’re single or hitched, Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to flaunt your sexy red suit.

And when it comes to bestowing tokens of love this holiday, we can’t think of a better gift than a red swimsuit; it’s sexy, stylish and chic. Our personal faves in the red arena are our bejeweled halters with shirred bottom, the one piece Heritage Maillot, and the Pretty Pin-Dot Halter Bra and Shirred Bottom. These Jantzen® suits will certainly turn heads… and hearts!

Lots of love & Happy Valentines Day!
