The two styles shown are typical of the summer fashions, designed to give nature , a helping hand. Credit for flattering planes and molding curves goes to the elasti- cized fabrics used for both suits. The fabric seen In the strapless navy and while suit (left) is new blister-knit wool—a imiTy lextmc which allows a .style like this one to t>c built aloiiE: classically simple lines. The blister-knit puffs arc Recked with white and the scalloped Lop of the suit is edged with red. What, strctchability for gives this swimming suit ami the j.'llng of a second skin when it's not in motion is an elastic thread knit into the wool. Metallic rayon taffeta gives glamorous gleam and satin lastex clinging fit to the two-piece swim suit (right). Combining with the glinting taffeta of colorful stripes are panels of solid color satin lasiex which give shorls their slim fit and the bandeau bra its flattering curves.
