A fabulous eye-catching white and blue floral patterned Nylon one-piece swimsuit original from 1960s, made by Ariella. The classic design represents a sophisticated and feminine style which is representative of earlier California surf culture and beach lifestyle. The more dense-knit characteristic of these earlier designs allows for a very stretchy yet durable feel, but also creates a very slimming and body-contouring look which accentuates natural curves. There is a built-in plastic shelf bra (signature of this era) with v-neck which helps form and accentuate the chest region and the bottom cut is a brief-style boy short cut; backside is a low round scooped open back. This swim suit is a stylish feminine design and a definite statement piece for any classic ladyslider surfer or beach-loving gal.
