Rose Marie Reid: Born in 1906, a member of the Mormon church, Rose Marie Reid was the most important swimwear designer of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. Her career began when she made her husband a pair of trunks from an old duck fabric coat, at a time when mens' costumes were generally made from wool: these became popular, and when he claimed (inaccurately) that women's costumes were also available, Reid Holiday Togs was born. Reid's main concern was to celebrate the female form whilst preserving modesty: although some bikinis bear her label, she never came to terms with this fashion and thus her company declined throughout the 60s. Reid herself left the company in 1962, and moved to designing wigs: RMR Swimwear ceased trading in 1965, but the company name still exists, and wa bought by the Sirena Aparel Group in 1994.

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! ....
