Item details

SIZZLE in a Cole of CA suit! these suits are incredible! Still with tags attached, modeled but never worn outside! If you want to be a true vintage beach babe than here's the perfect suit for you.

From 1936 through 1972, the company’s head designer was former theatrical designer, Margit Felligi. Felligi was responsible for many innovations in the swimwear industry, such as the use of Lastex fabric, nylon and spandex. She was known for her creative use of fabrics. And in 1965 she rocked the swimsuit world with her “Scandal Suit,” a daring one-piece suit with a plunging net front.
In 1951 (before she had her own line) Esther Williams was the spokeswoman for Cole swimsuits. One ad read:


“Here’s the perfect suit for real swimmers… the best I’ve ever worn. It will really do something for your form – in or out of the water.”





This particular number is a vintage Nude bust Lace up "Blasé" suit vintage size 10. Modern size 2, very stretchy but shouldn't be stretched beyond its limits.



100% Nylon. The Elastic is good. This suit is not designed to stretch to a form fit. It is designed to stretch a little and snuggly hug the body. Suit is in MINT condition.

****MINT - No problems, as close to "new" as possible for its age. Likely never worn or used.*****

********Please understand that vintage clothing is used clothing, and at least 20 years old. Very few items will be in mint (meaning "brand new") condition. All vintage clothing will be more fragile than new clothing, and should be worn with care. Like many vintage sellers, I describe my items using the following rating scale:

MINT - No problems, as close to "new" as possible for its age. Likely never worn or used.
EXCELLENT - Shows normal wear expected for age, but nothing easily visible.
VERY GOOD - Shows normal wear expected for age with some minor problems visible, but problems will not detract.
GOOD - Has some obvious visual problems. Structure is intact. Problems could be fixed. These items will be available at discounted rates.
FAIR - These items will be available at discounted rates, and if you are creative and up for a project, these are still interesting pieces.
