1960s Nautical Retro Pinup Style Swimsuit

1960s Nautical Retro Pinup Style Swimsuit

This navy blue vintage one piece swimsuit is made of a nice thick stretchy fabric. The built in bra has molded cups and an elastic band for added shape and support. Almost like new! I could not find any flaws or damage to this swimsuit.

Measured flat, the dimensions of this cute swimsuit are:

  • waist: 28 inches
  • hips: 30 inches
  • under-bust: 30 inches
  • widest point bust (approximate, as measured over molded cups): 34 – I would guess this is a B cup, although since the back is open, you could probably be slightly larger and still fit
  • low point of neck to bottom of crotch in front – 23 inches
  • arm hole diameter- 18 inches

This would be great to do retro pinup shoots in; as you can tell, I already have. I think it looks 1940s (I have slides from 1947 of someone in a very similarly styled suit), but dated to the 1960s because of the molded cups and the tag that says “hand wash dry flat”.

Any questions, please ask!

Shipping within the USA is free, in a medium flat rate box.
