Vintage Sterling size 32" bust turquoise 2 piece swimming costume

£50.00

Product description

This amazing two piece swimming costume dating from around 1950's is from the 'S & S Stirling £' label. Made in turquoise woven fabric, that feels like stiffened cotton with a satin finish, it consists of a sun dress which is smocked and elasticated over the bust cups and down to the waist where there is a 7" deep frilly skirt. The costume has long narrow straps which go over the shoulders, through back loops then ties at mid back. The skirt frill has a white embroidered edge and the costume has matching 'big' pants with a central seam front and back and elasticated, gathered waist and legs. The costume is in extremely good condition for age with a scant inch length where the stitching has come undone on the elasticated top of the pants and a hemming repair on both inside legs. The elastic is in very good condition throughout the costume.
