This adorable silhouette was adapted from a vintage bathing suit from 1936. The types of fabrics used in the original garment were matched exactly. This means that stretch lycra used in contemporary bathing suits are not used in this or any of our other designs. You will find your experience wearing this suit to be comparible to the experience of a woman who wore the original in 1936.
