The latest addition to my swimsuit collection.
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh that is awesome!!!!!!
Oh Lizzie! This is glorious.
Holey Moley! It is fabulous. Enquiring minds want to know... where does this fit in to the Jantzen timeline?
Wow, that's just...
thanks for giving us a peek, Lizzie! (And I'm with Maggie--would love to know the date for it!)
oops. I see the date is in the title - 1929. But would still love to know about how this fits in overall. It's such a bold look! Was this the first appearance of the diving girl?
The company was started in 1910, and started making swimsuits several years later. The Diving Girl was introduced in 1920. There is some really interesting details on my blog.
I didn't realize your original post linked to your blog--thanks for pointing it out, Lizzie. And you are right--lots of fascinating info... I especially love learning that the belt is really a feat of knitwear trompe l'oueil!
Never saw the diving girl that large. The suit is fantastic and it looks like it's in great shape. What a great find!
WOW! That is an amazing swimsuit! What a treasure. I don't know much about the history of Jantzen...looking forward to reading the blog.
WOW....she is amazing...I've never seen one so large either, what a fabulous find, Lizzie!
Truly amazing - love it!
Oh my, that's so cute
Wow, the condition is amazing!
That is indeed very nice -- and the condition appears to be amazing.
how on earth did i miss this post back in September??? that suit is SO cool!!!
That's called branding for the blind!
Wow!! I don't know how I missed this either. What an amazing find
