GLAMOROUS VINTAGE WATER GODDESS APPLIQUE SWIMSUIT WITH A FABULOUS BACK IN ORANGE CRUSH
A stunning glamorous vintage swimsuit in a fabulous shade of orange crush - i came across this beautiful suit in a vintage clothing store on my last shopping trip to vancouver, b.C. A couple of months ago
Glossy white nylon trims the suit & makes for a wonderful contrast with the orange - there are huge appliques on the suit both front & back for a lot of interest - an almost one-shoulder goddess look to this suit although the other side has 3 spaghetti straps which travel over the shoulder to form a spectacular latticwork-look in back
The former owner has added a lightweight bra to the inside of the suit which could be removed if you wish - the appliques have hand stitching on them so they may have been added & if so, it made the suit look stunning
There is an old invisible zipper in the back of the suit for a good fit - the suit has a lot of springy spandex to it - the bottoms of the legs are also tight with elastic for a good fit
Just an absolutely stunning vintage orange & white swimsuit which will make you look like a water goddess
Size: no tag but i wear a size 10 suit & it fit me perfectly
Bust: 34 - 42 stretched tight
Waist: 28 - 34 stretched tight
Hips: 33 - 39stretched tight
Length: from top of strap to the middle of the crotch unstretched 30-5/8 & could probably stretch down to 39
Fabric: no tag but lycra or spandex
Condition: very good vintage - some small things need to be fixed but they would be easy to do - the straps in back attach to the back of the suit with hooks & eyes - the hooks are all there on the inside back of the suit but 5 of the straps need the “eyes“ sewn on - the former owner had it pinned but i think it would be better to put the eyes back on - i thought about doing that but it really needs to be tried on by the person wearing it as the straps will have to be adjusted to that person‘s body & everyone would need the eyes in a different place so i will leave it to the new owner to do that - the cleaners can do that for you very easily & all you have to do it tell them where you want the eye placed on the strap - some of the seams inside the suit are raw which i don‘t know why but no one will see it & it doesn‘t affect the wearability of the suit
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.
