Ladies 1930's Swimsuit

From the seller:

A wonderful and rare to find vintage bathing swim suit called Beach Mate by Bergman Mills. It has the cloth tag. Made of wool.

This one is very nice in blue with belt and pretty bow on back.


Shoulder to bottom shirt front 24 inches

Shoulder to bottom shorts back 25 inches

Under armpits across chest 14 inches

Front waist from side to side 13 inches.

Light spotting, small nibble holes in places. Tiny bleed on corner of belt, minor.

Overall in very nice shape. These early suits just didn't last.

Circa 1920/30s era

Just found from an estate.

From Me:

Mid to late 1930's based on the waistline and details. As for the measurements, wool swimsuits stretch a lot. :-)


  1. ROFL! I remember my mom wearing something like this, in the 1960s.

    1. You can still find some similar to this style with all the vintage/retro lines.
