Bikini with twist bandeau top

This Pazazz bikini has a twist top bandeau top made of two contrasting colours - a feature of design in the mid 1980s. As fashions for the legline crept higher, the waist also rose and became a focus for decoration, in this case it has a gathering almost like a loin cloth.
