$ 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.

$ 66.00Fantastic 1960s black maillot swimsuit. Inner bra support, flirty skirt over the bottom. Halter style with back straps as well. Label reads: Robby Len Fashions. Extra cool bit of trivia about this swimsuit? It has another tag that reads: You're a "Snap" away from a better silhouette when you buy your snap in 'shape lee'. Robby Len patented this little bust enhancing inner bra like fixture in 1959 and introduced it in 1960. Poly, I'd say. With cotton, nylon and lycra in the lining and bra. Even better about this suit? Its a bigger size!
