Ladies 1900s Bathing Suit, Navy

Item: 002383

$54.95


CHOOSE YOUR SIZE 


Make a splash in our vintage styled swimsuit. As more people flocked to beaches, the bathing garments became more fitted and shorter much to the dismay of the conservative bystanders. This well tailored sailor suit was the height of beach fashion in the 1890ís and early 1900ís and would even pass the Beach Patrolís whose job was to ensure that ladiesí skirts were not too short.

For modesty and authenticity, pair with our pantaloons and mobcap. Our version features the most popular naval middy collar with a v-neck front and large square flap across the back, which has contrasting trim. Authentic details include an attached contrasting bow tie, cap sleeves, and contrasting trim at the sleeves and ruffled skirt bottom. Skirt measures approximately 26 inches in length from set in waist.

Imported. Made of 97% Cotton and 3% Spandex for comfort. Machine wash in cold water on gentle cycle and hang to dry or dry clean. Also available in Black. Offered in sizes S - 3X.

PLEASE NOTE: This item runs SMALL. Please verify your measurements and check the sizing chart. If you have questions, please call us.

Quality
Thick cotton material. Look is genuine and makes me feel like the 1900s. I bought matching bloomers. I am 5"7', athletic, 149 lbs. I usually wear between a size 6-8. The dress in a large fits comfortably. Biceps are snug. My waist is 28 and there is plenty of room. Not skin tight. I bought the bloomers in a size small and those fit prefect.

Great!!!
Beautiful dress; can't wait to wear it for Halloween. I am grateful for previous reviews that suggested ordering one size up. I usually wear a size 6 or eight and ordered a medium, and it fits snug.

Early 1900's swim suits
I purchased three of these for an event that will take place next February, and I'm eagerly awaiting the opportunity to wear mine. I may use it at Halloween so I won't have to wait several months to enjoy it. I'm greatly impressed with the quality of the bathing suit. The fabric is of a nice quality, and the construction is of good quality. I'm most impressed. I feel the suits were a "bargain" at the price we paid for them. We are constructing our own mob caps as we want a patterned fabric rather than plain white, but most likely the quality of the mob cap would follow suit. Now that I've seen the quality of product, I know I will be buying other items from your site. Love it!

Loved the authenitcy
I loved the look and quality of this product. However, I needed to order a larger size than normal which meant I needed to return the first order and reorder a larger size which came very quickly. I am very satisfied with this purchase from Historical Emporium.

The swimming dress is very well made - it's cute! I would caution (and thank you for publishing your reviews when I purchased mine) to order a larger size. I wear size 8 and ordered a size Large dress - it fits very well.

Adorable!!!
I took others review comments to heart and ordered the size 3x, ( I normally wear a size 12) The comment that drew my attention was tightness in the arm area. It is easier to take clothing in than try to enlarge. I have room in the sleeve, and I do have larger arms. Rather than take in the waist I got navy fabric and made a tie belt, and I am very happy with my vintage style suit. I did get the white bloomers as well and plan to add a navy strip to trim, I ordered the bloomers in a size large and they fit fine , but do not think someone over size 14 clothing would be able to wear them! In all a very adorable outfit at a very reasonable price! Just follow the caution for sizing being small!

1900a Bathing Suit
I love this item. It is made well and is just what the picture shows. the only thing is it comes very small. I usually wear a size large so I ordered an extra large. IN the end I needed the 2X. Nevertheless, I am pleased with the item.
