1950s Maurice Handler Black One Piece Bathing Suit


1950s Maurice Handler Black one piece bathing suit. Like most bathing suits of the 50s, this one features an hourglass silhouette, complete with boning along almost every seam. The straps are detachable from the back. There is ruching detail at the hips that look like a skirt from the front and an average bathing suit from the back. A bow and winged detail at the bust help to capture the essence of femininity of the era. It has a zippered and hook-and-eye closure at center back. Fits a modern U.S. size: 0-2. *All MRS Couture garments and accessories have been professionally cleaned and thoroughly checked before shipping. They are ready to wear upon arrival.
