Thirties • White Belted Swimming Costume

•  from about 1927 to 1933
The fashion started in the late 1920s and continued into the early 1930s.

Some bought belted costumes others just bought a white belt.

Another example of a popular fashion which is easy to adopt.
An inexpensive white belt buckled round the waist made any old costume fashionable.

Note that one piece costumes with a hooped or contrasting colour top section were also popular at this time.

All aged about 18 years old   • and date from about 1933  •
