SOLD - FROM MY OWN PERSONAL COLLECTION - GORGEOUS VINTAGE ‘50s LOOK CARMEN MARC VALVO SWEETHEART NECKLINE BLACK SPANDEX SWIMSUIT WITH METAL TRIMMED BELT & FABULOUS BACK
An absolutely gorgeous new vintage ‘50s starlet-look Carmen Marc Valvo swimsuit with a sweetheart neckline, metal trimmed belt & a fabulous back from my own personal collection
I purchased this retro look one piece suit for myself without trying it on & i should have bought the suit in 1 or 2 sizes larger than my normal size which is a size 10 - i could not get the suit on even to try it on - with all the spandex in the suit, one needs to buy a larger size than normal - since the suit is a size 10, it should comfortably fit a size 6 or 8 but go by the measurements just to be sure - the suit sold for around $170 when i purchased it
The suit has a fabulous sweetheart neckline which is to die for & that is why i purchased the suit - built in molded cups bra with underwiring for plenty of support - the swimsuit is loaded with spandex for an hourglass figure -there is a belt around the waist with 2 bright shiny gold tone decorations on either side of the waist which look like nail heads on them - I have lightened several photos so the detail may be seen better
There are rubberized strips under the arm area to help keep the suit in place - the strap that goes around the neck is missing but that can be replaced quickly by another one & there is so much spandex in the suit that one probably does not need the strap to keep it up - the loops for the straps are very far over on the sides to give the suit a spectacular halter look
High-cut legs give a long, lean, skinny look to your figure - the back is beautiful with a cut out section with a band which stretches across the back with a gold tone hook for closure - the suit looks as though there will be plenty of coverage in the seat area which is important - suit is fully lined

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.
