The Diving Belle 2.0 1940s Jantzen Bathing Suit

The Diving Belle 2.0 1940s Jantzen Bathing Suit


Be the belle of the diving board this summer in this stunning early 1940s Jantzen bathing suit. Fashioned in a Lastex Miracle Yarn fabric, this suit has the appearance of a woollen bathing suit without the weight or rigidity.

With softly shaped bust cups, elegant cross back straps that fasten through the sweetest white bow clips, a drawstring at the lower back and a modesty skirt over built in shorts, this bathing suit is oh so streamlined and elegant.

From our research the fabric appears to be a Lastex Miracle Yarn which was developed for Jantzen bathing suits in the early 1930s. The fabric resembles a velour and has an elastic core which is wrapped in cotton, silk or rayon.
