A bathing costume in brown wool with bands of colour. The costume is knitted with a front and back, U shaped neck and fastens with three plastic buttons and buttonholes on both shoulders. The armholes have ovals of plain brown knit sewn in at the bottom. Bands of green, orange and blue decorate the bottom of the skirt which partially covers the sewn in drawers which themselves fasten on the outside of the leg with two plastic buttons. The costume has the printed label 'The Ocean Bathing Suit Co, New York' and comes from the former premises of Meridian. It is likely that this, and others now in the museum's collection, were obtained for research purposes.
