1943 Poolside Glamour

This image above is from a magazine from 1943 and as always you can click the image to enlarge. The swimsuits (and models) are all lovely, the one on the right is a pink Jantzen two piece, the middle two are possibly Catalina and the one that Ester is wearing? That's a Cole of California, and she's got the matching skirt in her hands. And that iconic suit, one of my favorites, was designed by Margit Fellegi. Esthers' suit has a small print pattern to it.

And the reason I share this with you today is look at the lovely Yvonne De Carlo, I could swear that's the same suit, only the one Yvonne is sporting has a long skirt and it looks as if there is no pattern to the orange fabric. And I'll take a pair of those shoes that Lynn Bari is wearing above and pair them with that fabulous suit. Which one is your favorite?
