RARE VINTAGE MARGARET MARTEN FOR FLORENCE EISEMAN SWIMMING SUIT
I love florence eiseman’s clothes that she designs for children but i have never seen a swimsuit with her label on it - i did not realize that she manufactured any adult clothes - however, i do know that her brand was sold in high end stores like saks fifth avenue, neiman marcus, etc.
The colors of the suit are black, a medium golden rust & white in a mod design - black zigzag stitching along the v neckline, straps & arms - there are attached panties under the a-line skirt - beautiful low scoop back - nylon fabric in crotch - there is a very nice built in bra with elastic under it for a snug fit - the bra cups are shaped very nicely & should give you wonderful support

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.
