1950s Ruffled Plaid Catalina Swimsuit

Super sexy printed plaid 1950s swimsuit that can double as a playsuit for a really brave girl. It's made from that high grade cotton that one only finds from this time period. It is cut in that classic pin-up bombshell style of the day - all curves and sexiness missed with girl next door innocence. The top is halter style, with two straps and a built in foundation. A pretty tiered row of ruffles goes down the front highlighted with pretty white buttons. Each side has a panel of elastic gathers allowing for maximum comfort and a perfect fit. It is a Catalina suit and I think my favorite thing about it is it boy cut sleek bottom! Amazing! Excellent condition.

Bust: 15-17" flat across from side seam to side seam, with a solid B-C cup
Waist: 12" flat across from side seam to side seam
Hips: to 16.5" flat across from side seam to side seam
Bodice: 14" from top of shoulder to waist seam

Fully lined in cotton with a built in lace back bra for support. It closes with a back painted metal zipper. Each leg has elastic and the bloomer type bottom under the top part is made entirely of cotton All the elastic on the suit is in great condition. Belt loops but no belt. Very minor and faint discoloration here and there inside.
