Sexy, but not in a Brigitte Bardot way

These goddesses are a perfect way to show sexy but covered up, which is something a lot of girls have forgotten how to do. The one on the right reminds me of the 50s playsuit/swimsuit pattern on the Vintage Fashion Library website. These white maillots are from Sirena, and retailed for $19 (can you imagine?). "A figure hugging cotton and Lastex knit reveals what the other suit of soft Arnel jersey conceals with flattering drapery."

I'm all about flattering drapery! The white is, I'm sure, just for show, but I'd wear this in a royal blue or a green.

From Look magazine. May 10, 1960.
