More Claire McCardell Swimwear

We've talked about and shown Claire McCardells Spectacle Suit that she created in 1949 (above). Today I share with you yet another Claire McCardell swimsuit from 1950 (below). Note how the color and the fabric looks similar, and the bottoms have a bit of billowing. I would wear that in a heart beat! Which is your favorite?

The top on the bikini would make my girls look sad, but the bottom suit in olive green is beautiful, I'd wear it in an instant!!

I love the second one. The bikini top kinda looks like sunglasses.

The second one. While I love most of McCardell's designs, her bathing suits sometimes just look odd to me. The top one looks like a pair of spectacles over a bushy mustache!
