Knitted 1950s bikini

A young girl wearing a knitted 1950s bikini top and shorts. The photos were taken in Leipzig in 1950. How on earth does a knitted bikini top not stretch out of shape when she comes out of the water..??

    Apparently there was special wool sold for knitting swimming costumes. I learnt this interesting vintage fact when researching old knitting patterns. What a sad life we lead here at TheBigForest!
