Jantzen Swimgirl Pt. 1 - Member Comments

An underwater photoset capturing the essence of this website! It serves as a reminder of why fans of the classic “swimgirl” style totally adore Aquawomen.com! Beautiful Mermaid Porchia certainly possesses the perfect shape and swim skills needed to become that “girl on the logo;” and what a cool treat these images are to all those of us who are fascinated by the design and fit of the “classic” swimsuits and caps from that fabled mid-20th Century era of “swim glamour.”

Image 24 happens to be my own fave here, but I also love so many of the other pictures in this photoset! Take a good look at image 2 for example...a shot of “submerged awesomeness!”

Mermaid Tara’s ultra-sharp photography not only allows us all to see exactly why Porchia is perfect in the role as Jantzen Girl, but also helps to illustrate exactly why this trademark logo has “worked” so well for so many years. It’s such a basic design that it triggers instant recognition with no margin for doubt; one sees it and immediately thinks: “THAT is the symbol of a serious woman swimmer!”

Speaking of which...whether going “retro” or a “modern” with their scenarios, it’s only the “serious women swimmers” of Aquawomen.com who can so consistently produce photosets as good as this one; THANKS to Mermaids P & T! As the old saying goes, “the proof is in the pudding!”


Ttime :-D :-D :-D

...Pics 1, 5, and 6 are my faves. Porchia as perfect Jantzen girl!

Not to be too PICKY, mind you! But some pics are worthy of SPECIAL note!

Smiles Tommies! And so WELL DONE!


Ttime! :-O

HOW on Earth could we not love Mermaid Porchia like this!?!?!?!?!

Ttime :-)

Oh my, my, my, such a beautiful, classic swimwear combination.
And a really nice variation on the normal well known red swimsuit and red bathing cap Jantzen symbol that has graced such swimwear for almost a hundred years and that I remember so well.
Thank you so much to this website for being the only place that actively keeps such beautiful vintage memories alive, in a way I never dreamed would be possible.

Porchia, you and Elise are true Swimgirl Goddesses.
My sincere thanks to you ALL.
