As an appreciater of vintage swimwear, I love Rose Marie Reid! I was really excited when we unearthed this, as I'd never seen anything other than swimsuits with her label... I wonder whether the great lady herself was directly responsible for this dinky little number, which we date to the late fifties, possibly very early sixties. In flourescent pink, yellow and green on a barely-detectable white ground, this gorgeous beach dress epitomises the era's beach style!

Fastening with little buttons on the shoulders, it is very slightly fitted - darts at the bust, then hanging almost straight - and fully lined. It's to slip on over your cossie before you wander to the cafe for that cold drink, in a day when ladies simply didn't show more flesh than necessary, even on the beach!

It's not quite perfect - there is a cigarette burn on the front, which I have shown in the picture: otherwise it appears to be in very good condition. Approximate measurements are 35 inch (89 cms) bust, 34 inch (87.5 cms) length; best fit would be a modern UK size 10 or smaller.

Here are all the pictures she has of this item - as usual, clicking on any picture will produce a large version of the picture - some of the files can be quite large....
