Get ready for some fun in the sun in this original vintage swimsuit from the Fifties! The fabric is 100% smooth polished cotton in vivid shades of blues, teal to aquamarine. Classic design, with adjustable straps that criss-cross in back. It closes with a metal zipper in back. The suit is lined in light blue cotton and the bra is formed with darts instead of any type of elastic. Nice fit! Has a pleated bodice with a great shape. The bottoms are like boy shorts. So flattering! The fabric is in great shape, no fading! There are panels of smocked elastic at the sides, which have lost a bit of the elasticity, but still look good.
Made in Honolulu, Hawaii, by Kahala.
