I typically do not buy retro--anything dating beyond 1970s, but I could not pass up this holy grail of retro swimsuit. Flattering on every body type, this classically styled 1950s swimsuit is designed by the famed mid-century film and swim star Esther Williams.

The suit features:
A high-waisted, slightly skirted bottoms
Halter neck
Flirty, cinched top.

Show off your flair for vintage style without spending a fortune.

Dating this suit: White Esther Williams is still producing suits, I believe this one dates to the 1970s or 1980s.

Approximate measurements: (this suit is 80% nylon/20% spandex
Listed size 10
Bust - 32'' (flat) to 37'' (stretched)
Waist - 25'' (flat) - 30'' (stretched)
Hip - 32'' (flat) conceivable up to 40'' (I squeezed into the suit and I have a 42'' hip and 37'' bust -- guess it all depends on how much squeezing you want to do)

Condition: Excellent! Looks to have never been worn. One very very light mark on interior crotch (looks like a rust stain). Elastic and boning in excellent condition. No stretching or sagging to not.

Ships Priority US. Will ship internationally - Priority preferred, 1st Class (quoted above). Message me for a shipment quote.

Layaway available.
