Rare 1940s Cole of California Red Striped Swimsuit
This product is currently sold out.
Talk about a bombshell vintage piece! This is a rare 1940's Cole of California red and white striped 2 piece swimsuit. The top features a versatile design - it can be converted into a halter top or it can be worn a spaghetti strap. Two buttons on either side (with two button holes) allow you to change the way the straps can be worn. Almost identical to a swimsuit seen on in an original 1940s Cole of California ad (see pics), this is a one of a kind set that is not only collectible but fun to wear!
The bottoms have a wonderful smocking detail which gives the bottoms a lot of stretch, making it great for curvier girls.
Waist: 24"unstretched - 28" stretched
Hips: 30"unstretched - 40" stretched (smocking detail allows for a ton of stretch, it fit a 40" hip just fine)
Bust: 32"- cups can fit up to 34"
Condition: Excellent vintage condition. Has been laundered and pressed and is ready to wear. The color of the white in the swimusit has aged to a more cream/beige-ish color. Small/faded discoloration near bottom right of swimsuit (not very visible because of pattern and location). Rare/museum quality. One of a kind.
