They just don't make swimsuits like this anymore, girls! This swimsuit is an absolute stunner. It is in pristine condition - no stains tears or holes of any sort. We love the very "proper" bow detail on the side front of the skirt, and the criss cross weave on the bodice.
Alix of Miami was a designer of high end resort wear, cocktail dresses and swimwear in the 50's and 60's. His designs are very sought after by vintage clothing collectors and aficionados with good reason; The fabrics and the fabrication are top notch, and the designs themselves are so femininely fabulous!
The label reads, "Florida's first name in American fashion."
This swimsuit is tagged Size 16, but this is a vintage size 16. The measurements correspond with a modern day size large or a misses size 10.
Bust: up to a size 38" (the built-in bullet bra does not look like it will accommodate larger than a C cup)
Waist: up to 30" inches
Hips: 40" - 41" inches
A very rare & wearable piece of history! Our mannequin does not do this swimsuit justice!
