Good wearable condition with some flaws.
-Some very very slight discolouration to the gusset lining and some yellowing to the lower part of the bust lining. Neither visible when worn. Swimsuit has been handwashed and gusset treated with hydrogen peroxide.
-I think this originally had two shoulder straps, but only one remaining, which hooks on as a halter strap.
-The fabric is a little bit stretched.
