Go from pool, to party, in this fabulous plaid cotton bathing suit that doubles as a play suit!
Made from a lightweight blue plaid cotton fabric, this one-piece suit has spaghetti style straps that may be worn buttoned to the back, or tied up into a halter style neckline. The bodice is super fitted, with slightly pointed bust. There's a funny little blue p[iping detail at waistline, and the lower portion is actually two separate layers. The inner layer is made of lightweight black cotton, and has elasticized cuff shorty-shorts beneath the plaid shell layer. The same blue piping is echoed at the outer layer short cuffs. The closure is a center back metal zipper with hook & eye at top, and the back is fairly open. Overall this piece is in excellent condition, with some small repairs (somewhat obvious) at both underarm sides, pinhead sized hole at right bust area, the inner cuffs have lost some of their elasticity (but they do not poke out beneath the outer layer, so you still won't see then), with some light overall signs of wear -please review photographs for full details. Only label reads 'Bobbie Brooks, U.S. Reg.' (I can tell you fro other Bobbie Brooks pieces I've seen from this era, that they are quality, well-made pieces!).
- shoulder straps are adjustable with button holes at three different lengths (plus, you can always go halter style instead)
- 34 inch bust (I'd say up to CCC cup size)
- 26 inch waist
- up to 36 inch hips
- approximately 26.5 inches total length from shoulder to hem
