Almost luminescent orange 60s bikini, still with original tags, by Confezioni Dean, an Italian label. Approx early 60s era, and a great fit, classic for the era. Bra is underwire design with a U cup which curves up between the breasts, it's so flattering and great little 60s vintage shape to the cup too - very Bond girl! Thin halter strap which attaches to the wire between the cups and ties to the neck, this could be removed if you prefered it strapless for sun bathing. Back fastens with small hook and has a section of elastic to either side of the clasp for a snug fit. Bra cup is lined with synthetic. Matching low rise pants with v-shaped lace trimmed ruffle. Waist and leg cuffs elasticated. Pants are lined in thin white cotton.
The bikini is labeled a size 5.
Pants would fit approx a Small, but elastic gives them some flexibility, please see measurements.
The bust /cup I would estimate to a 36D or a 38C, but please refer to the measurements and ideally compare to a wired bra that suits you well. Please note sizing is an estimation only!
Fit on model: as shown, cup and underband size is a too big on a 32D/34C so would advice for larger by at least one cup size and 1-2 band sizes up
Chest: approx 32" unstretched to 37" stretched (there is additional fullness in the cup)
Underbust: 30" to approx 37" max stretched
Underwire measure 12" from around the U from edge to edge. Cup measures 8" across the centre seam when expanded.
Length from top of bust to underbust: approx 6.5"
Low Waist (sits on your upper hip a couple of inches below belly button): 22" unstretched, stretches to approx 36" max stretched
Hip: 32" unstretched to approx 38" max stretched (best fit somewhere inbetween)
Rise from gusset seam: 11" unstretched to 12.5" stretched
Length: 13" approx waist to hem when stretched out
Very good condition. New with tags. Please note as these had been in storage, I have untagged to wash and iron them, but they are unworn. The cups are lined with a very very slight thin padding lining, which feels like it has dried and very very slight lumping to the padding material, but it's still perfectly wearable as is, this is really quite slight and not at all visible when worn.
