From The Archives: 1950's Wonder Girl

Appropriately named “Wonder Girl”, this stunning sheath recently became a new addition to the Jantzen Archives collection. It is a classic beauty of elasticized taffeta shirring designed to flatter any figure and “make a body beautiful”. Rapidly becoming a best seller, it appeared in the line continually from 1951 through 1960 making it one the longest produced Jantzen swimsuits in history; truly a great run. This is swimsuit perfection at its best. The “Wonder Girl” continues today as an inspirational suit for our designers and our current collections which reference our historic suits.

The image features the “Wonder Girl” suit on the Wolf and Vine mannequin in 1956.
