60s blue vintage swimsuit by Spinney.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
My fourteen-year-old, ultra-cool, ultra-glam niece 'borrowed' this costume to wear to a party (over fishnet tights) and was only found out when she flashed the photos (which she then refused to let us use)...the Princess went potty, of course, but the effect was excellent, largely because of the colours: neon blue on black It's a very classy suit!
The only label gives the maker's name, no garment details, so I don't know what this is made from, but it's very flattering, whatever it is!
The suit has narrow straps, moulded cups and a low back. There is a little skirt effect at the front; I believe there is also some kind of tummy control, as the pants part are separated from the front (though not at the back...sort of sem-detached?) and, as I say, the suit is both slimming and curve-enhancing.
Measuring swimwear is always difficult, but I would say this is a modern size 10 - 12. Approximate garment measurements are: bust 36 ins/91.5 cms, hips 32 ins/81 cms, length from centre front to bottom of skirt 20 ins/51 cms. Remember there is plenty of stretch to the fabric, and it should fit tightly when dry. NB: MODEL IS WEARING UNDERWEAR
