Vintage Barbie Black and White Swimsuit

Vintage Barbie Black and White Swimsuit

Vintage Barbie Black and White Swimsuit was the original outfit for the first Barbie dolls. The ponytail Barbie dolls sold in 1959 to 1961 were wearing the famous zebra striped suit. The first Bubblecuts were also wearing this.

In 1962 Barbie's outfit was changed to the Red Helenca Swimsuit.

The outfit always included Black Open Toe Heels and White Sunglasses with Blue Lens.

The swimsuits are very "stretchy" and are prone to stretch out, especially at the bust. They are also prone to runs and usually look "dingy". They do clean up well with a soak in Oxiclean. They are fairly easy to find.
