Marilyn models Two Piece Swimsuits

We continue with our Marilyn Monroe in swimwear series today focusing on the Two Piece bathing suit. You can see part two of our series of Marilyn in one piece swimsuits here, or read a bit about her start in modeling here.

Which is cuter, Marilyn or the little dog?

Marilyn models the "Temptation" suit by Jantzen.

Marilyn poses in Jantzens "Double Dare" swimsuit in 1947. The Double Dare got it's name because one could see the upper thigh through the two circular portholes.

We love the lace up look of this two piece bathing suit.

Ruffles, so Lolita and playful!

Marilyn also modeled for Catalina. This suit has the Catalina flying fish logo crest.

Above in black and white and below the same suit in color.

I'd love to have this swimsuit in our collection. Perhaps some day, A girl can dream! Do you have a favorite?
