Diving Belle 1940s Jantzen Bathing Suit

180.00

Be the belle of the diving board this summer in this stunning early 1940s Jantzen bathing suit. Fashioned in a Lastex Miracle Yarn fabric, this suit has the appearance of a woollen bathing suit without the weight or rigidity.

With softly shaped bust cups, elegant cross back straps that fasten through the sweetest white bow clips, a drawstring at the lower back and a modesty skirt over built in shorts, this bathing suit is oh so streamlined and elegant.

From our research the fabric appears to be a Lastex Miracle Yarn which was developed for Jantzen bathing suits in the early 1930s. The fabric resembles a velour and has an elastic core which is wrapped in cotton, silk or rayon.
