Wow! Barbie can change her swim look, depending on her mood, at least four times a day! Here she has a red Helenca suit, which she wore in the box, or as a Pak outfit. These were available 1961 through about 1965. The horizontal stripes, with a blue bottom, adorned the American Girl Barbie, from 1965 to 1966. The striped top, now belted, and ending in a pink bottom, belonged to Barbie 's Mod cousin, Francie. Francie came out in 1966, and was a Twist and Turn doll. The "classic " zebra stripe, in pink and white, is a later edition of Barbie's original black and white swimsuit. It also came in light blue and white. The fun geometric design, two piece swimsuit, belonged to Stacy, a Barbie friend, who arrived in 1968. These are all original pieces, from the 1960's, in very good condition, lightly played with. Please note that Francie and Stacy have different bodies than Barbie. They are slightly smaller and do not fit a Barbie body.
