I am just totally in love with this fabulous vintage bathing suit! This 1950s swimsuit is just everything the rockabilly bombshell could desire. It has a Hawaiian tiki print in blue and gold - gosh, I wish the original tag was still present! The bust is pleated, the center front is ruched, and there is a sarong style drape and tie at the hips. The back? 100% fully shirred and elasticized for a perfect fit. The bust, of course, is boned and double lined for support. A show stopper at your next pool party!


Bust: 33-38"
Waist: 20"-28"
Hips: 28"-38"
Length: 25"

Condition: Very Good minus
This suit looks fantastic, and the colors are still lovely, but when you compare the exterior to the interior, you can see that there has been fade over time, particularly in the deep purple color. A small area of elastic at the center of the buttocks has come unstitched. The elastic is still stretchy - it isn't worn out, it is the stitches that gave way. This is visible when on the hanger, but NOT when it is worn, and can be repaired by a seamstress if desired. The stay at the bust are good and straight, the lining of the crotch is fresh and white. Priced accordingly to condition. I find no other issues to note!
