This is a super find! An original 1960's beach dress from Rose Marie Reid, the famous swimwear designer who patented innovative costumes, changed the face of swimwear in the 1950s and dressed Hollywood stars, including Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth.

Features mother of pearl button down shoulders to make the dress easy to slip on over your bathing suit and is a fairly straight style, which followed the same design as other RMR dresses produced during this era - many of which were created alongside matching swimsuits.

Best fit: Extra small approx UK6/8.
This slips over the head and was originally worn very loosely.
The measurements of the actual dress are as follows but this will not comfortably fit over the shoulders of a UK10, hence the best fit suggestion:
Bust: 34"
Waist: 35"
Hips: 36 1'2"
Length: 37"

Please contact me if you have any queries.

Label: Rose Marie Reid medium

Condition: Excellent | Clean and ready to wear

Details: For more information about Rose Marie Reid, see http://exhibits.lib.byu.edu/rose-marie-reid/

All vintage items have been pre-used, unless stated otherwise, and may have gentle signs of wear.
