Absolutely stunning Vintage 1940s Skirted One piece Swimming Costume.
Handmade for a 40s starlet it’s remained unworn and stored.
The costume is in a man made silk Jersey and lined with an elasticated fabric which is firm and offers shape and support as well as giving a little control.
The elastic at the leg is firm and without rot. The material still has its original elasticity properties and is stretchy and firm. All the stitched seams are complete and without breaks. The straps have two sets of buttons to alter the length. The costume fastens at the back with a zip which is hidden.
The fit is exquisite and styled to compliment a vintage size 16/18
As the item is vintage and unsized Accordingly, I have taken the measurements when the suit was laid flat and relaxed, not stretched for you to make comparisons against a similar garment for the correct fit.
Guide Size; 14
Length from neckline to edge of skirt; 20”
Underarm to underarm; 38”-42”
The costume has been shown on a size 38” bust ISO mannequin and is a tad too big
The swimsuit was previously part of vintage collection from a retired dresser to Hollywood stars. Please drop me a line if you have any questions.
