Navy blue synthetic taffeta bathing suit with narrow straps, V-neck, and a tailored waistline. The suit is trimmed with point-scalloped trim along the neckline and bottom hem, and has an A-line mini skirt covering an attached seat. The tailored, cone-shaped bust is lined with the same taffeta while the torso and seat are lined with blue tricot. The straps should button to the garment in back, however the buttons are missing. A metal zipper closes the back.
