1950s 1952 JANTZEN ruched blush bathing suit swimwear xs | new spring
An incredible piece of swimwear history documented from 1952! Done in a soft blushy pink with ruching down the front. Pointed sweetheart style bustline that is boned and adjustable straps. Wide set straps can be tied as a halter, criss-crossed or buckles into straps. Back metal zipper with panel that shields your skin. Fully lined in front and crotch.
