All the Throwback Swimwear You Forgot
Imagine swimming in a midi skirt?
Oh, how far we ladies have come in history. Women are running for president. We’re leading Fortune 500 companies. And we’re not forced to sport a petticoat on the beach.
Let's all refresh ourselves on just how much has changed in our bikini-line area alone.
Bathing suit or bathing…dress?
So long, bloomers. Bare legs have emerged.
With the ’20s came even lower necklines but the same public hem-length rules.
Oh hey, spaghetti straps.
The bikini is born--just as shorts.
Guess bold colors weren’t a thing yet?
Now entering the sexual revolution and the arrival of the “Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini.”
It was an era characterized by mesh, crochet and clearly unsupportive Lycra.
Ah, the faux-thletic supermodel and her fanny packs.
Nothing else came close to a Baywatch high-cut this decade.
You couldn’t throw a rock and not hit a tiny triangle top.
Here we are. The world of bloggers, the need for nostalgia and the return of the high-waisted suit. Can’t say we can complain.
