Vintage 70s/80s white pleated cossie by Gottex.Please

Very classy swimsuit by Gottex, made from a textured, pleated fabric and fully lined. Gottex is an Israeli company, founded in 1956 and the USA's biggest swimwear importer.
The fabric gives the impression of having been wrapped around the figure like a bandage, which flatters the figure, and with 5% lycra there is plenty of stretch if required!
It's made mainly from polyamid(e) (which is basically another name for nylon) with lycra for four-way stretch, and is fully lined with elasticated support under the bust. Gottex is the firm which 'put glamour and fashion onto the beach', partly with their use of Spandex - with which, I believe, this suit is lined.
In lovely condition, this is closest to a modern UK size 12. Approximate unstretched measurements, taken flat and doubled, are 25 inches (63.5 cms) bust; 21 inches (53.5 cms) waist; and 28 inches (71 cms) hips. Length from top of shoulder, 26 inches (66cms).
