Pamela Levenson started sewing retro swimsuits in her basement 15 years ago because she wanted something comfortable and flattering.
Now her business, Popina Swimwear, has two Portland locations and offers a wide variety of unique 1940s and 1950s inspired swimsuits.
Popina is seeing a boom this summer thanks to the comeback of the retro one piece.
Levenson hopes to one day have a little swimwear museum in the Popina location in Northeast Portland to show off her collection of vintage swimsuits.
