Vintage 1940s Bathing Suit - Classic Early Catalina "A California Creator" Twist Style Bathing Suit in Pale Pink with Button Back


  • Product Description

      Vintage 1940s swimsuit is a lovely earlier Catalina style. This beautiful suit is a drapey woven fabric, lined with soft jersey. This earlier label features one of their best brand features - sized by weight range as well as a numbered size. The interior jersey has fitted panties, while the drapey exterior offers a skirt with scalloped hem. This closes up the back with buttons.


      This suit is marked a 36, for weight 125-140, but the measurements seem to fit more toward the latter end of that, or a bit larger, it will depend on your proportions.

      Bust: 39"
      Waist: 29" (ties in to 27" well)
      Hips: 41" (exterior), 36-44" interior
      Length: 32"

      Label: Catalina, A California Creator, Styled for the Stars of Hollywood
      Material: Rayon Jersey lining, blend exterior
      Condition: Good plus

      This suit is has been cleaned and is ready to wear. There is some very, very minimal fade toward the hem. The underarms have mild discoloration, only noted on inspection. There is a faint smudged area at the lower left front corner. I find no other issues to note!
