Claire McCardell ensemble.
Halter bikini on the left of white Flex-faille by Seamold, and on the right of beige knitted wool by Jantzen.
For all day on the dunes, and dips in the sea... boxer shorts, a man-cut shirt, and a brassiere in a sharp, clear, navy-and-white Tahitian cotton print, by Catalina.
A pink-and-white bathing suit in Everlast cotton chambray, part plain, part stripes, by Bonwit Teller.
