1950s 60s Dorothy Perkins cotton skirted swimsuit - Extra small
A sweet late 1950s swimsuit from British high street stalwart 'Dorothy Perkins' who, as a bit of late- 1960s trivia, co-funded Biba's expansion into it's large Kensington boutique, the iconic 'Big Biba'. If you owned any beauty products, menswear, or homeware from Biba, it's down to DP's 70% stake in the business allowing this growth!
In crisp mushroom grey and pale sky blue cotton, printed in stripes, with contrast paisley print, it features double-pleated skirt to cover elasticated brief. Fully shirred back, with slightly conical bust and straps adjusting with (original galalith) buttons inside the garment.
