Mint condition never worn vintage 50s 2pc swimsuit and skirt. Gorgeous floral watercolor print. A rare and very collectible set! Boning structure in the
Crisp clean and in excellent condition.
Catalina size 14 swimsuit
Catalina size 16 matching skirt
The material feels like silk but is really a nylon fabric.
Center back metal zipper
There is some stretchy smocking on both sides
of the bodice
Adjustable button shoulder straps (3 diff holes)
The swimsuit is cut like shorts on the bottom (full coverage) with a pretty twist bust detail in the bust area.
Worn together, the skirt and the swimsuit transform into a gorgeous vintage pin up ensemble that can be easily worn as day or nightwear. (not just poolside!)
We think this suit was designed and meant originally for more of a poolside "decorative" look than actual swimming. What we nowadays call "resort wear".
If you want to rock a pin up sexy look at
your next pool party or VLV...this is the numbah for you!
We estimate this suit to correspond with a modern day
size small to medium. All garment and size labels are intact in both the swimsuit and the skirt.
