Blue and white rayon and cotton knit bathing suit with a V-neck going into knit ribbon straps, to a low back with metal buckles. The elongated torso ends in a tight skirt over the attached seat. Blue and white flowers decorate the lower right skirt and upper left breast. The bustline has seamed cups, and the entire suit is unlined, but taken in at the waist for shaping.

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