Deadstock 1940s/1950s swimsuits

Medium http://www.ebay.com/itm/281321108323

Large http://www.ebay.com/itm/281321112134

This vintage swimsuit was made in the early to mid 1950s. It is a brief style, with an elastic waistband and zipper coin/key pocket. The zipper was made by Savoy. The un- belted brief men’s bathing suit came into style around 1948 and remained popular through until about 1958. The 1940s models generally had flapped pockets, whereas by the later 1950s, most had lost the pocket altogether. These stylistic changes help with the dating. The suit is deadstock, that is, it was never sold originally and has never been worn. It still has the creases from having been folded for the last sixty years or so.

1950s / 1960s Ocean Champion swimsuit

http://www.ebay.com/itm/271234498990
This vintage swimsuit was made in the 1950s or 1960s by Ocean Champion. Ocean Champion was one of the first companies to move away from wool and lastex blends, and into modern materials. This box is slightly later than the other pair I’m listing, rephrased to read “The Choice of World Champions” instead of “Chosen by the U.S. Olympic Team”. The pattern and model is the same.
As the box says, the suit is two independent layers, a trunk within a trunk. At this point, the manufacturer Ocean Pool Supply Co., was headquartered in Huntington Station, Long Island, NY.

Waist (unstretched): 13″ (doubled = 26″)
Waist (stretched): 17″ (doubled = 34″)
Rise: 14-1/2″
Side Seam: 10″
