Although this bathing suit would be perfect for Annette Funiccello in 1961, it comes from the mid 1950’s. By Lanz (remember the red Jingle Bells dress I showed in December, also by this company?), with a metal zipper in the middle back of the bottoms(!). Boy, was I thrilled to find this one!!!
A froth of pastel gingham ruffles, it couldn’t be sweeter. Seems that it would also enhance your measurements a bit! Anyhow, it is sturdy enough for playing volleyball, too, or maybe even a little jog (those ’50’s bra-tops are STURDY!)
So, even at the YMCA, there might be a chance to show off this one. Summer’s definitely here and you just never know . . . . . . . . . ..
