Oleg Cassini swimsuit 1960s size 6-8

Product content

Possibly the cutest swimsuit I've ever had, the shape is hour-glass curvy and accentuated by that contrasting under-bust ribbon. Structured bust features deep centre front notch for maximum cleavage.

Embroidered "fleur de lys" design highlights the hips. Straps are adjustable via clear plastic buttons. Crotch is lined in black nylon.

This swimsuit featured in a swimwear exhibition at the Ballarat Heritage weekend in May 2010 and also a blog post where the Devil Dust in the bra cups was discussed. The bra cups have now been cut out and the swimsuit is ready to be worn, well and truly free of the dreaded Devil Dust.
