WTF is a “Playsuit?!”


I found this great Flickr page where someone had scanned a Frederick’s of Hollywood catalog from 1964.  Besides being fabulous and scary at the same time, some of the fashions are somewhat out of this world.  This page is a page of “Playsuits.”  WTF is a playsuit?  

I am quite intrigued…

See Flickr page here.

  1. Excellent! All the playsuits include the iconic bullet bra.

    Be careful though; it’s all fun and games until someone loses an eye.

  2. Yeah, I would go with “scary,” although there’s also an element of Catwoman lurking in the background. A bit pricing at $12.99 though.

  3. It’s what fashion, today, describes as “goes from office attire to evening wear in the blink of an eye.” Only, you know, “evening out” was “booze on the beach blankets” instead of a club, so hotpants and bullet bra (or swimsuit) were a must.
