Marilyn Monroe White 2pc Sunsuit Bikini

 The Sun-suit worn by Marilyn Monroe for a photo shoot. Above is my version, made using a stretch poly fabric. It is self lined so that it could be worn in the pool or lake without being see through but is meant for more for poolside glam and not so much actual swimming. The top features a cuff with black buttons and black cord. I used pushup bra cups in this one but bullet bra cup could also be used for a pointier bust line. Boning in center front and sides. Elastic finishes off top and bottom edges. Hooks in back. High-waist shorts with cuff detail and same button detailing on the sides as the top. Center back zipper with hook at waistband.


  1. I love your work! Thanks for sharing the construction tips.. You should write a book, teach this method.

  2. Beautiful Job!! Looks like Marilyn could have worn the one you made!
