Gorgeous vintage 60s one-piece cotton swimsuit by St Michael.Please
FREE delivery worldwide!!Add to wishlist
This is a beautiful swimming costume, in really excellent condition: it appears never to have been worn, in fact! Made from thick cotton, with bullet bra cups and a little skirt, it's a charming relic of the late fifties or early sixties.
The main colour is white - still fresh and clean - and there is an all over pattern of flowers (daffodils? dahlias?) outlined in bluey-green.
Because this is cotton, there is no stretch to it, which makes it less flattering (but more comfortable to wear) than suits in man made fibres. I would suggest that best fit would be a modern UK size 12 - 14: approximate measurements are bust 38 ins/96.5 cms, waist 32 ins/81 cms, hips 39 ins/99 cms, length from centre front to hem of skirt 18 ins/46 cms. (NB ALL SWIMWEAR IS MODELLED IN UNDERWEAR)
