1930s Cotton shirred Slix swimsuit - Extra small
A collectible little swimsuit, and the earliest example I've handled from British label Slix (not the modern Australian brand!), in mid blue cotton. Entirely shirred, with main body elasticated vertically and horizontally from 'bubble' finish, and rows of plainer elastication to the midrif and between bust. Pull on, with flat straps crossing at the back and passing through loops before tying as desired.
Hip up to 26"
19" centrefront to crotch
Wearable with a few condition notes; a few short lengths of elastication have broken in the areas indicated however still generally very stretchy. Small hole at chest and some rust marks as pictured
