History of Bathing Suits of Women
Are you aware about how the swimsuits of women came into existence? Did you know that womens swimsuits have only been worn by women for than a century only. In this article you will learn about the brief history of this piece of clothing of women.
For many centuries before women do not don swimsuits because swimming for recreations sake was not something that was accepted during these times. The first swimsuit for women appeared on the scene in the 1800s but it looks vastly different from the modern swimwear worn by women now. This is because in this swimwear the woman was covered from head to toe. Thus women did not find enjoyment in wearing such kind of swimsuit.
This all changed when in 1907 Annette Kellermann appeared on a beach wearing a one piece bathing suit that shows her arms, neck and legs. This kind of act was deemed as indecent exposure of ones body and that is why she was arrested. But her swimsuit made a big impact. She marketed it and by 1910 many women across Europe were already wearing it. In fact during the 1912 Olympics women who competed in the swimming category wore this swimsuit.
In the 1920s there was a time when the designer Coco Chanel was seen to have gotten a tan because of her Mediterranean cruise and people subsequently wanted that too for themselves. This led to people making alterations to the one piece swimsuit that Anne started out with. Backs of swimsuits had plunging lines in them. There were also people who made swimsuits into two-piece ones which allowed women to expose their midriff.
The infamous bikini was created by Louis Reard, a French designer, at the end of the World War II. This swimsuit was named such because it initially was expected to cause a volatile reaction among those who will see these. In 1964 the magazine Sports Illustrated has the first cover of a model in a bikini. There was then no going back after that. Around the world more women started choosing this as their swimwear when they hit the beach.
During the 1970s the material that was commonly used for swimwear is that of lycra or spandex. These materials dry quickly, lightweight and follow the bodys shape. The designers then made experimentations with the design for the swimsuits. In the 70s and 80s majority of the swimsuits were bright in color. In the 90s the bikinis had adornments in them.
Now there is a variety of choice that one has for swimsuit. It has become part and parcel of a womans wardrobe. Now on which swimsuit is appropriate for you will be your decision.
