Orange, white, and black striped satin synthetic bathing suit with V neck and elongated torso, ending in a short flared skirt over an attached seat. The spaghetti straps extend into long ties, criss-crossing over the wearer's back, then threaded through loops. Darts help fit the bust cups, with a pointed seam at the waistline, and a red jersey lining fits the suit to the body.

Gift of the Anderson Family, Sullivan's Island, South Carolina.
