Adorable vintage 1950s swimsuit/playsuit by Catalina. The piece is made from light yellow cotton  with thin white stripes. Sweetheart neckline and adjustable straps that button on the back (the straps have three different button holes). Decorative buttons and white lace trim down the front. There is a built in bra on the inside with boning along the cups. Fitted waist with a matching tie belt sewn in on the left side. Pleated skirt with bloomers underneath. Metal zipper up the back with hook closures on the inside. The garment is lined with white cotton. 

Era: 1950s
Brand: Catalina
Material: cotton
Estimated Size: marked a vintage 14, best fits a modern small

Shoulders: n/a
Bust: 30"-36"

Hips: 38"-42
Length: 26.5" to top of strap to hem of skirt / 27" from top of strap of skirt to cuff of bloomers. The measurements where taken at the second button hole out of three.

Good vintage condition. There is a small blue spot on the front, along with some scuffs to the buttons, and loose button threads. On the back, a repair was done on the back of the right side at the button hole strap. The back of the bloomers have some small scattered holes in the yellow top fabric, some dark marks along the leg openings that didn't come out during cleaning, and the elastic doesn't have a lot of stretch left. Regardless of this flaw, the piece presents beautifully, and has been priced accordingly.

This garment has been cleaned and is ready to wear.
