Never let it be said that we don’t offer you a crazy selection of vintage items! I mean, how often do you see bathing suits from the 1960s, which is when I would think that this cut-away green Peter Pan flower-power cossie must date to. Isn’t it just nuts? And quite fabulous! You would need quite a body to show it off properly though – I tried it on, and have to admit that it wasn’t a particularly attractive sight! I’m a size 12, so would think that this costume must a 10 or maybe even a size 8.

The blue cossie, with its wonderful little skirt (and shorts underneath) is far more generous, and was a pretty good fit on me (just to give you an idea of size), so I’d say that the label which reads 14 is accurate (although you could definitely still wear it if you’re a size 12). Unlike the green costume, which is definitely a period piece, this Jantzen costume is actually a contemporary bathing suit based on a vintage look. Jantzen cossies are pretty pricey selling for an average of $80 (R1000)!

NB: It’s important to point out (in case you’re not a fan!) that the Jantzen cossie has slightly crazy ’50s style pokey boobs built in!
