1950 - For The Beach

Images and text from Vogue May 1950

This week we explore vintage swimwear fashions from 1950.

The Lace Bathing Suit

Lace on the beach? The answer is news, is "yes"! White cotton lace, lined with fresh green, looking like a flowered print - for sunning, dipping. The opaque underlining, the wide buckled sash, of green Fuller cotton broadcloth. By Carolyn Schnurer, $20, at Best's; Himelhoch's; Hartzfeld's; Frost Bros.

Polka Dot Maillot

All time shape for a neat look, active performance. In navy-blue, now with a spatter of giant white polka dots, double shoestring straps. By Saucony in cotton and wool woven with lastex, $10. The striped terry cloth towel by Martex, $4. Both at Bloomingdale's. Suit, also at Vandervoort's; The Broadway.

Tomorrow we'll feature the Maillot Top, Beach Transparency and the Dressmaker Suit.
