Used bathing suit anyone?

Now, I know that what I'm about to propose might sound as grody to some of you as the idea of eating toenails, but listen: Vintage bathing suits are cute! And germs can be washed away! I'll admit, there is a weird ick factor surrounding not-new swimwear that makes some folks feel mighty hesitant, and on top of that there's the fit issue, which is always challenging/nightmarish-even more so when an item can't be returned.

What about used shoes from eBay? Scary or fine?

However, I'm still going to argue that the merits of a glam retro one-piece, an '80s-fabulous version like this, or a flirty shorts-kini that covers up a lumpy belly far outweigh the minor hygienic risks. Plus, they're cheap! Okay. Let the debate begin.
