1967 White Swimsuits

Nothing looks better with a deep tan than white. Now, I'm not advocating sun exposure, but if you've got it why not show it off to advantage? Here, white swimsuits from 1967 photographed by Irving Penn for Vogue magazine.

Skirted swimsuit with a surprising bare back criss-crossed by straps. Suit by Bill Blass for Roxanne in double knit nylon. Sold for $30.00 (about $196.00 in today's dollar).

Tiny bikini with bows by DeWeese in nylon jersey. Sold for $20.00 (about $131.00 in today's dollar). P.S. - I have no idea what is holding that top up!

Dotted swiss cotton/dacron blend in a girly pinafore with bikini pants by Ladybug. Sold for $23.00 (about $150.00 in today's dollar).

Pleats, pleats, and more pleats form a swim dress by Rose Marie Reid in a dacron/nylon blend. Sold for $30.00 (about $196.00 in today's dollar).

All hair ornaments are by Sant Angelo.
