swimsuits through the decades….

1910s – swimsuits were more like dresses

1920s – athletic tank suits revealed more of the female figure than previously seen

1930s – swimsuits begin to be made out of lastex and resemble more of what we wear today

1940s – bikinis were patented by Louis Reard

1950s – bikinis were still thought of as a bit “exotic” and were left mostly to movie stars

1960s – swimsuits evolved into body hugging, figure flattering pieces of clothing

1970s – flower power

1980s – ultra glam

1990s– the beginning of Baywatch and the return of the one-piece
