Hollywood Swimsuits for 1936


This siren is Patricia Ellis, relaxing in an all wool zephyr suit of coral and white. It is triple knit, shadow, shrink and stretch proof. Parallel air cord trimming affords perfect front fit.


Left: White dots on dubonnet are perfect for Germaine Greer’s clothing. Knitted in all wool zephyr, her suit had adjustable shoulder straps ending in brassiere tie-back belt.
Middle: A clever cut suit of chenille matelasse stitching worn by Charlotte Russell. The skirt width is exactly right and the shirred neckline treatment enables the wearer to adjust the front of the bodice in height at will.
Right: Excellent for figure control is Irene Bennett‘s knit swimming suit. The contrasting neck lacing provide a smart uplift effect. The navy and white color scheme is carried out in the smart beach sandals.


Diana Gibson has chosen the new carrot shade in a wide wale ribbed woolen for her swim suit. Matching socks and white shoes.


A citron yellow play suit, built high at the neck, for Marion Talley. Chinese sun hat and striped robe for lounging on the beach.
