Since the debut of Hulu’s Pam & Tommy, viewers have been totally enthralled with both Lily James’ transformation into Pamela Anderson and the style of the 90s icon herself. 'Pamcore' is actually trending on TikTok, with users trying to recreate some signature Pam Anderson outfits—right down to those trademark skinny brows. But most of all, what fans really want is Pam’s red Baywatch swimsuit.

Even the Gen-Z’s among us will recognize that red swimsuit from episode three of Pam & Tommy. Arguably one of the most famous swimsuits ever it features in every episode of the 90s lifeguard show Baywatch

The iconic suit was worn by Pam, and the likes of Yasmine Bleeth and Alexandra Paul, as they ran—in slow-mo no less—across the beach.
