true vintage late 1940's - 1950's CALTEX of california white slub booty dip shorts & top playsuit swimsuit

sensual, or scandalous ala vikki dougan --it's up to you!

note:  this set actually appeared unworn when found but covered in storage soiling over decades. there was a plastic tape shield still attached to the crotch of the underliner in the shorts but we had to soak it for a very long time in order to restore it.

  • underliner and back metal zip
  • top is convertible with straps that can buttoned over the shoulder to the back, or unbuttoned and tied around neck

very good. the plastic tape that was attached to inside of the crotch for decades (on under panties only) caused some holes and there were a couple tiny stitch repairs at the right strap. price adjusted acccordingly.
