We never tire of Marilyn Monroe in swimwear. The first two images of her are from Holiday magazine 1948.
Untarnishable silver thread woven into a diamond pattern shines in this matelasse taffeta. The suit is a one piece classic with specially constructed bra by Caltex of California.
Here she basks in a one piece swimsuit in 1948. It is made of soft velvet treated chemically for water repellency. The bow tie bra and shirred trunks are separated in front for a two piece effect. This one is by Cole of California.
We have a similar swimsuit in our store Glamoursurf.com. This one is by Del Mar in a black stretch satin.
Isn't Marilyn adorable here? I love the classic look of a white swimsuit paired with that polka dot parasol.
Tennis anyone? Slip some shorts over your swimsuit for a game on the court, then head back to the pool to cool off.
