This suit is styled after the suit worn by Marilyn Monroe. Made using Aqua spandex, fully lined. bust has boning and bra cups. I also put boning in the side seams to better support the suit. The front is skirted from seam to seam. Scoop back with ties. I added a removable halter strap for a more secure fit. below is the suit, the first picture is the suit with out the straps and elastic, and the finished suit.
And a little side note, this suit would just about fit the measurements given in the first photograph of Marilyn, only my suit has a slightly smaller bust.
