The coolest 50s swimsuit ever. An
abstract, atomic style sketchwork print
of birds in rather compromising
positions in grey and black on sunshine
yellow. Sarong inspired side wrap, boy
shorts, ruched bodice with petal bust and
smocked sides. Metal zip up back, by
Catalina....quite likely one of the most
unusual and rare Catalina swimsuits
ever made! Mint condition. Click picture
