Number 2076: Jungle Girl, the Good
The full-body costume is different from the usual jungle girl togs, which are as brief as possible.

And those six pages were in the six issues of .Jungle Action, after which she appeared no more. Perhaps Gwen got heat exhaustion.
The story is by Don Rico, who also wrote Lorna, another of Atlas’s jungle girls. The art is by Al Hartley, who drew some very pretty girls, jungle and otherwise, in this period of his long comic book career.
