Sucaryl. I just did some minor research to see if it was still being produced, but no, not in the United States. You can however find it in other countries. I don't use much sugar, but I use real organic sugar when I do use it. All of these artificial sweeteners make me cringe. But back to the suit, love the stripes and it fits her so beautifully, don't you think? One of the advantages of authentic vintage swimwear is accentuating your curves in a sexy but modest way.

This image illustration is from 1930. I've always been amused by this sort of flaunting imagery from the past.
Here's another press photo with pretty girls showing off the old and the new.
An finally this one, from 1945. The suit in the middle is from 1917 while the one on the left is prior to the 1900s. And that gorgeous two piece on the right is from 1945. I'd love to model a pin up shoot like this with suits ranging in time, wouldn't that be fun?
