Esther with the WAVES.

While filming 1952's Skirts Ahoy, Williams learned that members of the WAVES program received thin, cotton, shapeless swimsuits as part of their uniforms. Williams modeled a Cole swimsuit for the Secretary of the Navy and explained that the new swimsuits helped support women's figures; the United States Navy ordered 50,000 suits immediately.
