Paper bikinis?


Came across this great 60s advert here. Maybe right, maybe wrong, not sure. Tracy looks pretty nervous as the first couple of shories froth around her waist and her absorbant swimmers start swelling, just like those ‘transpiration’ experiments in year 7 science, wondering what’s she’s gonna be left with in a few minutes – no doubt a soggy and tattered film of printed paper delaminating about her privates…oh well there’s another pair in the bucket Trace.

  2. Maybe the material was a bit like those Japanese paper ‘wallets’ that were so popular for christmas presents to children in the late 60s early 70s… I’ve still got one – they are fairly durable, though its fair to say I never took it surfing!
