Vintage 1950s White Swimsuit by Elon, John Weitz
Stunning creamy white swimsuit from John Weitz, from the 1950s. Inner bra support, adjustable tie shoulder straps too! I adore the smocking at the sides and the overskirt front and back. Feels like a cotton or blend. Crotch is lined with cotton as well. Label reads: Elon, John Weitz.
Excellent to great vintage condition. Ok, so clearly this is not as white as it once was. When I found it it had been stored in a dusty old garage for who knows how many decades and was basically al over vaguely orange with foxing ad age. I've gotten as much of that out as I can. Structurally this suit is pretty much perfect, I've found no holes or tears or weak spots at all. Its literally just the discoloration. I don't min the foxing all that much, just because its signs of life to me, but perhaps one could dye it a dark color? Priced accordingly, this would be much more if it was snow white.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust waist and hip. Bust: 32" This is where the smocking is so theres some room to play here. Waist: 25" Hip: 38" Shoulder to bottom of crotch: 28" ish depending on where you adjust the straps. Waist to crotch seam: 13"
