Of Note

  • What a stunner! This suit was built to last and can certainly still be worn for a day at the beach. I also recommend wearing it as a pin-up costume with red lips and heels . . .
  • Please see the images below for more detail, but imperfections include: minor 1/4" discoloration on the lower right leg area; two 1/4" holes under the actual buttons where other buttons may have once been placed; visible thread near the buttons; slight color fading over time.
  • Molded bra.
  • Straps can be worn criss-crossed or straight across the back.
  • Like all Reel Vintage items, this piece has been laundered!
