This swimsuit was made in the early 1950s by Aetna. It is their Miamian model, for which I found newspaper ads in 1952 and 1953. It is made of Acetate, Nylon and Rubber, in a heavy textured fabric. The front panel has stripes, the back panel is plain white. There is a bit of light staining on the back. They have a drawstring waist.

Waist stretched: 20″ (doubled = 40″)
Rise: 12-1/2″
