    That's good because those girls have absolutely no figure whatsoever.

    Probably does not help but in the late 60s to early 70s "skin out" suits like those could be bought at Sears, Montgomery Wards and K-Mart. I only remember black and maybe blue and in 3/16 inch and 1/4 inch. Mine was 3/16 and was slick on the outside and lined with nylon on the inside and I think it was 40 dollars, hood and boots were extra. Some were textured as if they had scales. I don't remember lady versions but I don't remeber very much. N

    Forget about the wetsuit, where can I find her...........I think she's over weighted btw, don't let her go diving.

    You know, until I too began the search for a vintage looking wet suit, one that is a logo free zone, one that has a smooth external skin of only one single color perhaps with a yellow stripe, maybe in black or dark blue etc, I did not realize what search results for wetsuits, neoprene, rubber suits, dive suits would yield! There are apparently some really--well----let me just say they are not scuba diving in their suits! I don't get it actually and I still have not found what I am looking for.
    Yeah, I saw all the weight on those "girls" and now realize they may not be all about diving either! but in any case they are certainly carrying enough lead. N

    I would like to pick up a vintage style suit as well, so please let me know how it works out. I tried searching for the company, but couldn't find much. You might have to go to the mixnuts MSN group and see if the photographer will give you contact info.

    Take care,
    BD
