Early Teens Era Bathing Suit
From the seller:
I believe this swimsuit is late 1800s to early 1900s. It is tagged with a Philadelphia maker. Waist measures 34". Color is vivid Navy Blue with clear white trim.All original buttons are present. Seems to be a barely visible repair maybe back in 1911 as you might see in one of the close ups I provided. This is the only blemish I see. and is not really noticeable.
The style, the lack of gathers around the cuffs, the sleeves, all look more Teen's Era to me.
