1950s pin up swimsuit from the famous Hawaiian designer, Alfred Shaheen in a striking blue and puple tropical floral print.This suit is in good vintage condition. The smocking on the side is a bit stretched out (but still somewhat "stretchy"), and the top of the bust line has some extremely faint yellowish spots (very hard to see in the print and because they are so faint). The elastic in the legs has also stretched out (but it is not "crinkly" feeling, so there may have never been elastic in the legs to begin with). Material is a sturdy and soft cotton. The shoulder straps have two button options to make the straps longer or shorter (they can also be cris crossed). Back has a metal zipper.

Measurements:

Bust: should be at least a large B cup or C to fill them out (bust has structure and gives a flattering look without being 50s pointy or padded): 17 inches across but needs to be larger because of the stretch and extra cup room, so bust should be at least 35 inches-38 or larger
Waist: 14.5 inches across, and little stretch there
Hips: 19.5 inches
Length: 21 inches without straps and 27.75 inches total with straps in longest position
