1950s Wet Proof Paper Bikini..?

1950s waterproof paper bikini

Er, I can’t claim to tell you much about these photos except that they were labelled ‘wet proof paper’ 1953.

I have to assume that the bikini and beachwear are made from ‘wet proof paper’. Why, or what that is, and whether it’s suitable material for swimwear I have no idea. Sorry! If you can shed any light on this please do!

Either way, it’s a very stylish bikini, let’s hope it doesn’t dissolve once you get it wet!
