Sweet Disorder Vintage
1930s Black & White Striped Swimsuit
Utterly fabulous vintage 1930s knitted swimsuit in black & white stripes. Wonderful shaping around the bust where the stripes meet in a Deco chevron~esque pattern. Classic 30s silhouette with a low leg and faux skirt on the front. Criss cross straps button on the front of the suit with big white shell buttons. Super soft knit, probably zephyr wool, but no label present. No itchy or scratchiness. Inside attached nylon shelf bra. Boning for shape at the side seams of the bra. The bottoms are attached to the bra on the inside of the suit with a vertical piece of elastic, typical of this style. It creates the seamless smooth effect at the waist. Excellent condition with no damage to the knit or staining. Only note a few small holes in the nylon gusset and bra linings (see photo). Both the knit and elastic are still stretchy. Clean fresh & ready to wear.
