Vintage 1970s Bikini Hand Crochet Knit Two Piece Swimsuit Tan Bathing Suit Sz S
Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing
This wonderful 1970s era bikini was hand crochet knitted. You can tell that it is an older one by the quality of the crochet yarn and the density of the knit. I acquired this about 35 years ago and it was old at that point, so definitely an original vintage bikini, not a newly made piece. The top does up with straps around the neck, like a halter style, and with ties at the back. The top is quite skimpy in construction, a little revealing - it is unlined. The set is unlabeled as it was hand made. It looks to have seen no use and is very clean. Difficult to measure because of the adjustable ties, but it appears to be small - please note the following measurements for fit:
Top edge: 29” and its does have a bit of “give” - note that this part hits
Leg opening: 19” around
Height at the front: 8 1/4”, measured flat
Bottom edge: 16” across the bottom of the cups, exclusive of the ties - 58” around including the ties
Cup: Not sure, but small
Please write if there are any other specific measurements that you may need.
This is a very nice quality hand knit bikini…..very sexy!
