$ 106.00 - Sold OutI've been hoarding this insanely wonderful swimsuit for ages. I'm so crazy about the lobster embroidered on the front! One of my favorite things in the shop right now. This is a Rose Marie Reid design and is one of the first from her Skintite label, which she started in 1942 while still married to Jack Reid and before she moved to California from Canada. I see quite a few late 40s and later Rose Marie Reids, not so common to find the early 40s so this makes it extra special. Shoulder straps are adjustable, and are meant to be crisscrossed as I've shown it. Has an inner knit bra. Flirty skirt style with the bikini brief underneath. Metal zipper up the back. Label reads: Skintite Style , which is a Rose Marie Reid Design. Not sure of the fabric but there is no give to it and its has a sheen so probably a rayon or poly. The inner bra feels like a woven cotton or something else light. This is just the most incredible suit, I'll miss it!
$ 46.00 - Sold OutFantastic 1960s, late 50s swimsuit in palest blue. Bullet Bra with the inner bra built in. Princess seams for a great shape. Cute little skirt over the front. I'm not sure what this fabric is, but its supportive and a bit stretchy. And it has some very fun white sparkles on it, so it looks like you're covered in water droplets even when you're dry. :) No label.
$ 50.00Wonderful black bathing suit from the 50s. This is the top of what would have been a two piece. The bottoms are missing alas, but because of the length of this, one could adjust about any black bottoms and be fine, or a contrasting color for a peek a boo effect! Has adjustable shoulder straps with buttons that can be placed at any of three holes. Elasticize smocking at the sides. Its hard to see in the photos but do you see where the two center seams come together with the cute bows over it? Right there is a white center panel giving this a tuxedo look. The two black seams are not sewn together so one can see the white panel when one moves around. No labels, feels like a nylon parachute type material. Extra large size.
$ 90.00 - Sold OutFantastic late 1950s possibly early 60s romper playsuit in a light teal-ish blue. It is too large for dress form so I've pinned it for the photos. Inner bullet bra support, inner panty, shoulder straps which are adjustable to 3 different lengths via buttons inside the top and can be worn straight as I've shown or crisscrossed in back. The fabric is textured in such a way as too imitate waves, which is kinda cool. There is a tie belt attached to the center back. I've shown it tied in most photos but then left it hanging in the last. Smocking on either side at the waist. Back metal zipper with a extra hook and eye at the top, and fully lined in white cotton. Outside feels like cotton too. Definitely a larger size. No label but you can see where there was one. That said, this is very, very similar to a Catalina playsuit I had in the shop at one time, so it could be Catalina. That's just a suspicion though, I've nothing to back that up.
