1920s Swim Suit - Authentic 20s Deadstock Forest Green Bathing Suit - XS Flapper Swimwear - As Is Wool Knit by Munsingwear NWT - Bust to 32

$ 159.99

Authentic 1920s swimsuit, amazing to see with the original tag! This forest green wool bathing suit is a bandeau one-piece with wide straps, a hip seam, and a very slim skirt panel over attached legs. The hangtag was originally attached by a string (still on shoulder), describing this 20s swim suit as a "sun top" design, with all the best features available at the time. From the deadstock of a drygoods store that opened in 1911... we even found the original box! It's included too.
