I admit it, I'm a swim suit addict.

And when I found this 1949 Fashion Layout on the history of "The Bathing Suit" I thought it was the neatest thing since sliced bread. There are 8 pages (15 counting front and back) of historical swin suits and modern re-enactments of swim and bathing scenes, along with color layouts of many stars and starlettes of the summer of 1949. Including Marilyn Monroe. It a fun look at Mid Century fashion and how far fashion had come in less than 50 years. Compare to today's suits and you might be surprised.

Click on the record player to hear my fav 60's swim wear song.
