From large bathing suits in wool to Brazilian lingerie that barely "covers anything". The women's swimwear fashion has been constantly changing over the last hundred years.
A video that is now spreading online shows glimpses of history. "Evolution of the Bikini" showcases the beach fashion of just over a hundred year period, from 1890 to our days.
Model and actress Amanda Cerny is appearing in the video, which begins in black and white in the late 1890s, and Cerny is covered from head to toe in a striped wool suit with a matching hat. In 1910, she is wearing a T-shirt and shorts in combination.
Within the 30s the classic bathing suits we know today has occurred, only with a somewhat more conservatively cut. In the 1940s it comes in several colors and polka dots, before the swimsuit reveals increasingly more skin beyond the 50s.
The Bikini as we know it, was designed in 1946 by the Frenchman Louis Rearden. Beyond the 50s it was promoted by stars such as Marilyn Monroe and Brigitte Bardot. The first bikini in this video we see around 1960.
The design was shrinking steadily over the following years, and in the 70s we see a certain influence of the hippie movement's fashion image. In the 80s the swimsuit is back, but slimmer than ever. In the 90s the bikini is back again.
Also the "hot" fashion closer to our own time is covered in the video, as you can see below. Enjoy!
