Back to the Sun - 1959

This is the kind of unhampered exposure the lovely female back deserves. The plunge is deep, flattering - for Catalina follows the natural curves of the back to emphasize the core of it's beauty. The result not only bares you beautifully, but also acts as a perfect backdrop for a glorious suntan. Only a Catalina can enhance your special charms so completely.

Careerist, (in color) an Orlon and Lastex knit sheath flattering the figure from all angles. Buttons accent the low back. Empire bodice $19.95 ($149.58 in today's dollar.)

Primavera, striking satin Lastex leaf print, with square bodice, gathered waist, slimming boy leg, $22.95. ($172.07 in today's dollar.) Matching Cover-Up in fine cotton. $9.95 ($74.60 today's dollar.)

Smash Hit, figure flattery in plaid cotton satin, with built-up shoulders and puckered derriere, $12.95 ($97.09 in today's dollar.) Matching Cover-Up, sleeveless, hip level, $6.95 ($52.11 in today's dollar.)

Sportswoman, sun-baring simplicity in tweed plaid Lastex. Square low back has cording detail on bodice, slimming quarter panel skirt front. $15.95 ($119.59 in today's dollar.)

Sun Stunner, curvaceous sheath in iridescent Lastex with figure controlling uniskirt. Front cowl effect, soft draped back. $19.95 ($149.58 in today's dollar.)

The headline to the pictoral says "Enhance your special beauty with a Catalina." I find it interesting and refreshing that they chose to shoot the models from the back side. Which is your favorite?
