1940's 1950's Vintage Catalina Deep Rich Black Velvet Shelf Bust Dead Stock Swimsuit Bathing Suit Like New

$ 395.00

 

This 1940's 1950's vintage beautiful deep rich black velvet bathing suit is to die for. The pictures don't do this suit justice. I had to lighten the pictures so all of you could see the details of this amazing suit. The velvet is a true deep rich black velvet and looks to be hardly worn if not at all and has never touched water. To me it truly looks dead stock. It has a shelf bust line. The sewn in bra is black satin and in perfect new condition and all of the elastic is in perfect condition throughout the suit as well. The bra has boning which is in perfect condition also. The straps are adjustable and button in the front by the bust line with the original plastic buttons. The back of the swimsuit is smocked with elastic in the back which they called "Puckered Fabric". The small label states the following:

Puckered Fabric U.S. Pat. 2649062
8/18/1953
