1940s Jantzen Gathered Pin Up Swimsuit

Super sexy, early deco 1940s Jantzen swimsuit that can double as a play suit for a really brave girl. It's made from a high grade early nylon like fabric that one only finds from this time period - probably the most cutting edge swimwear fabric in its day! It is cut in that classic pin-up bombshell style - all curves and sexiness missed with girl next door innocence. The top is halter style, with two straps and a built in foundation and sweetheart neckline. You can wear this one with or without the straps. A pretty row of gathering creates a ruffle-like detail that highlights the neckline and the body of the suit is completely gathered through the back and that same ruffle look detail goes down the front - I love it - totally pin-up! The back is a panel of elastic gathers allowing for maximum comfort and a perfect fit. Amazing and a gorgeous color too! Excellent condition.
