Go Caribbean with Catalina's Bermuda Butterfly - Vintage Swimwear 1951

In 1951 Catalina came out with a number of swimsuits with the Caribbean being the inspiration. We've shown you Rhumba Ruffles, so today we'll take a peek at the Bermuda Butterfly one of the most colorful and comfortable suits in the Catalina line. A floppy butterfly at the top of panelled bosom and shirring for extra stretch-ability. This suit cost a mere $9.00 in 1951. LOVE!
