This is a pin up perfect 1940s authentic Jantzen swimsuit!! Two piece style with skirted bottom that has hidden attached boy shorts and halter bra style top (unlined); body of both pieces is a paler canary yellow lastex that almost has the look and feel of a terry cloth; green cotton ruffle trim on both top and along skirt bottom. Draw string inside waist of bottoms allows for waist adjustment; top neck and back ties allow wearer to loosen or tighten top as well. All in all, a fabulous forties set!!

Approximate Measurements of garments (in inches):
Top:
Bust: fit 35.5" mannequin but inner tag says 34;

Bottoms:
Waist: 29 at rest (can be adjusted smaller using inner ties--shown on 26.5" waisted mannequin)
Hips: 34" at rest (measuring boy shorts) but has stretch (fit 36" hips of mannequin and seems like can go to 38?
Length: 13"

Condition: Very very good. Both pieces are in intact and wearable condition, which is fantastic considering the age of this set! On very very close inspection, it looks like the red dye from the jantzen girl has migrated and left a subtle pinkish cast (and a couple of streaks) on the yellow fabric in places. As shown in the images, these are very hard to spot, especially when garment is worn, unless examined very closely. I should note that the top of this set is unlined, which means it may be a set best saved for wear on the beach or for pinup photoshoots (may get more see-through in areas when wet). All in all, set is lovely and has lots of life left; still, listing items are sold AS IS and are a final sale, so please ask all questions and request any extra photos prior to purchase.
