An adorable vintage 1950s / 1960s swimsuit / romper by Cole of California in a vibrant really cute patchwork print. Red hearts, flowers in flower pots, cross stiches and more. Soft white bra which has not yellowed with netting in the center to keep one cool.

Very top of the suit above the bra is lined with white fabric and extends a bit up the straps. Part of the upper back is also lined. Some light stays in the bra for shaping along with an elastic band at the bottom of the bra. Adjustable straps with 3 buttonholes. At one point, there was some thin elastic on 2 side inserts of the suit but no longer and is not noticeable. Attached panties with a crotch lining which goes from the waist on the front to the back. Zipper in back with a long strip of double fabric which goes over the zipper with a snap at the top so if the zipper was opened, one would see the fabric rather than skin. Nice touch. The suit had some loops on the side so I am adding a white cording for a belt. (The photos do not show the cord but another one that I had handy. The corded one looks cute with it.)

I love the bright cheerful pattern of the hearts and flowers!

Care Instructions

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.

Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.

Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.

Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.

The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.

International customer have 14 days to contact Midnight Glamour about returning an item if they should want to.  International customers may have to pay be additional customs and import taxes and there maybe unforeseen customs delays. The seller is not responsible for these delays nor for the custom charges as that is the international customer's obligation when purchasing an item outside your country.

Since we are a small business we do not credit your return back to a credit card. We only allow an exchange for another item or a store credit which is good for one month after which time, it is canceled if not used.  We do not accept returns or cancellations.  Shipping fees are not refundable.
