    Bathing Suit

    Dezember 9th, 2013

    A bathing suit is a garment that is worn for swimming or bathing in public and cover different amounts of the body. The first swimsuits were worn in ancient Greece then dropped out of fashion and came back in the 18th century when cleaning oneself with water became more popular again. The first bathing suits were made of cotton and were made for the sole purpose of hiding especially the female body from the opposite sex. Over the time swimsuits became shorter and smaller as it became more acceptable for women to show skin in public. As of the 1940’s bathing suits were made of nylon and in the late 40’s the bikini was invented by French automobile engineer Louis Réard (1897 – 1984) and fashion designer Jacques Heim (1899 – 1967) in Paris. Men were always allowed to show more skin and therefore have always been bathing in the nude or dressed only with trunks although bathing suits for men exist.
