1950s Coles Skirted Swim Suit Play Suit

Super sexy swimsuit that doubles as a playsuit from the 1950s with the highly collectible Cole of California Originals label. That high grade cotton that one only finds from this time period is hand screened with a pretty print that blends chocolates, greys and blues. Cut pin-up style that is all curves and sexiness missed with girl next door innocence. The top is has simple straps and a built in, almost bullet bra foundation. Each side has a panel of elastic gathering for maximum comfort and perfect fit. Wide loose bloomer style shorts are hidden by a micros short skirting that has slits on both sides. Amazingly it still as its original fabric tie belt too! It's killer and could be worn as a super uber mini by a girl with great legs today! Excellent condition.

Bust: 16-19" flat across from side seam to side seam, with a solid B-C cup
Waist: 12-13.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 20" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 16" from top of shoulder to waist seam
Skirt: 12" from waist seam to hem

The bodice is fully lined in cotton and nylon runs down the front through the panel at the bottom of the suit. There is a built in lace back bra for support. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each leg has elastic. All the elastic on the suit is in great condition. No inner staining. Really fabulous condition.
