A gorgeous pinup-worthy late 1940s swimsuit in glossy black satin, with white jumbo ricrac set into front seams, and white bust cuffs. Boned, with removable halter neck strap and fully shirred back. We replaced broken boning and entirely reshirred the piece so she is in restored structurally excellent condition!
I’m measuring the suit using the flat front and then stretching the back a little, so these should go to +1” more but will be showing a little more of the shirring at the front of the body if that makes sense! First measurements below are not super taut
Chest 33-4”
Waist 24-6”
Hip 36-8”
20.5” centre front to bottom of crotch
Strap 20 3/4” long

Someone has shortened the neck strap (why who knows) so there is one buttonhole at one side and two at the other, plus the edge is dipped inwards with fraying to reverse side which doesn’t affect structural integrity or use at all. A few little catches to satin cuff at armpit
