1930s Jantzen

Now on eBay! LINK

This vintage swimsuit dates from the 1930s and was made in the USA by Jantzen. It’s made of wool, and maybe a bit of lastex- there’s a tag that’s faded that is the size and shape of “Lastex” tags. It is maroon and ribbed, with a wide white belt. The buckle has the Jantzen girl on it, as does the body of the suit. There is a flapped watch pocket, and a cotton lining in the front. It shows a bit of age, but I don’t see any moth holes or noticeable damage.

Marked size: 38″
Waist unstretched (side to side): 17″
Waist stretched (side to side): 19″
rise: 17″
