This is a Vintage pink and white Ladies bathing suit from the 1950's or 60's.
It has a coral pink lining, straps and wrap around belt.
The top layer is a pretty white eyelet fabric with little cut-out areas in the flowers so the pink underlayer shows through.
It has a metal zipper up the back.
The straps are adjustable inside the suit with little buttons.
The "panty" area has elastic around the hem.
At first glance, one would assume that it is a "skirt style" but it's actually two layers of shorts. The underlayer is the elasticized "panty" type in pink and then the outer layer with the white eyelet fabric. I tried to show this in the photos, but please message me if you have any questions.
There are elastic panels at the back of the waist for comfort and fit.
The fabric appears to be a cotton blend.
The size tag inside the suit is 16 - though that is the Vintage size - It is equivalent to about a size 6-8 by today's standards. Please check the measurements because this is not returnable.
Bust will fit 32-36", waist 28-29", hips 37-40".
The elasticized portion in the back allows for these measurements to expand a bit.
When on the body, the suit falls approximately 26" long from the top of the shoulder to the bottom hem of the shorts.
It is in very good condition. A few loose threads, but no tears anywhere. A slight musty smell.
