Same Suit, Different Babe: Kim and Carol, 1983

Bellazon user Juju62 has been tirelessly collecting scans of swimsuit issues and calendars from the 80s and 90s. Because of his efforts, I found a new “Same Suit, Different Babe”: Kim Alexis in the 1983 issue, Carol Alt in the subsequent 1984 Calendar

You may notice that the design on the suit is reversed. I’m not sure which photo was flipped, but there may be a clue in Heaven.
This is the Kim suit as it appears in the coffee table book. It matches Carol’s. So I’m guessing Kim’s was flipped for the magazine.

Happy One-Piece Wednesday.

I've been a Kim fan for awhile, but I have only recently come around to Carol. They are two of the very best the Swimsuit Issue has offered over the years. Thank your for those pictures.

They're gorgeous--a great couple of golden age throwbacks.

Kim Alexis's mole is on the left side of her face. So, the image published in the magazine is flipped.

Well done, Peter! Confirmed.
