Larger Size, Stunning Vintage Black Pin Up Bathing Suit with Silver and Gold Lame and Rhinestone Detail, ca 1950s

$275.00 USD


This beautiful swim suit is in mint vintage condition: I can find no flaws. Although there is no actual built in bra, there is slight boning in the bust.

The suit features a sweetheart decolletage edged in rhinestones; attached to the top of this is a tucked and seamed inset with a white background and embellished with black, gold and silver lame stitching. The front of the suit is beautifully ruched. The iconic modesty panel covers the crotch of the suit which in turn is lined with white nylon. There is a long metal zipper closure in the back; the straps are adjustable, with extra buttonholes in the straps.

Approximate measurements- please note that there is quite a bit of stretch in this suit - the measurements were taken with no stretch:
bust: 34"
waist: 28"
hips: 36"
leg openings: 20"
length: 18" from top of strap to bottom edge of modesty panel
zipper: 9"

What a wonderful addition to your vintage clothing collection; this suit is a prime example of wearable 1950s textile art.
