A Walkthrough How Women Swimsuits Have Changed From The 1910s Till Now

Different times bring different changes to us and everything, here are the changes that women swimsuits have done through the years

Before 18 century, there were no specific clothes to wear if you wanted to go to the beach and have a swim in the sea. It all started to change when moving and visiting other places and tourist attractions became more accessible to people.
At first, it was a bit difficult for women to undress and have a swim barely clothed. The society of that time was judgemental towards free and emancipated women.

We at Viral Strange have collected 12 photos of different periods of history for you to see how our women have changed swimsuits from time to time.

1. Swimsuit from the 1910s.


The rising of railway transport made way for tourism to expand and flourish. The boom of tourism made people travel more and visit different resorts, but it was uncommon for them to get undressed to swim at the beach. The first swimsuit for women was a pair of wide pants and a dress.

2. Swimsuit from the 1920s.

The big change came at the Olympic games, held in 1912. The addition of swimming as one of the competing sports led to an immediate need for a new design of swimwear. The big pants and dresses could make the athletes not achieve great results. Women athletes were introduced first to the new swimsuits, making them show more of their bodies, like legs and arms.


3. Swimsuit from the 1930s

During this period, tanned skin became a trend, and women loved it. Swimwear didn’t experience very much change, but more accessories and colors were used by women. We have to say that men were still not allowed to wear short pants and reveal their hairy chests.

4. Swimsuit from the 1940s

The World War impacted people’s lives, even swimwear. They didn’t have the luxury to spend that much fabric on clothes. This was how 2 pieces of swimwear were invented. Also, women tried to always roll up their swimsuits to get better-tanned skin. An underwear businessman named Louis Reard created the first bikinis for women in 1946. At first, opinions were divided because people were not still used to revealing so much of their bodies.

5. Swimsuit from the 1950s

Bikinis were sensational, and women loved them very much because they attracted the hearts and souls of men. The first woman to be brave enough to wear such a body-relieving suit was Brigitte Bardot.


6. Swimsuit from the 1960s

In those years, people tried many classic swimsuits. However, they mostly tried to create swimsuits from fast-drying materials because the old ones took too much time to dry.

7. Swimsuit from the 1970s

For better tanning results, women started to prefer these sideless and one-piece swimsuits. This made underwear manufacturers produce more of these suits because of the high demands from the consumers. They also added ”kini” in every swimsuit model, and that’s how monokini came into existence.

8. Swimsuit from the 1980s

Women didn’t care much about tanning at pool parties during this period. The classic one-piece swimsuits came back into fashion and those who still wanted to go to the beach and get tanned preferred bikinis.

9. Swimsuit from the 1990s

Pamela Anderson from the Baywatch Tv show amazed everyone with her red full-body swimsuit running in slow motion through the beach. This affected the public, so the Baywatch swimsuits became popular fast.

10. Swimsuit from the 2000s

The mini bikinis came back in fashion during those years but with an add-on of the wraparound skirt. This wraparound skirt has different sizes, from short to big ones.

11. Swimsuit from the 2010s

Those years were a bit difficult for women because of the bandeau swimsuits without straps that would look good only on certain body types. Also, the monokini was back in fashion but could mess up your body tanning.

12. Swimsuit from the 2019s

The most wanted and fashionable swimsuits were the retro ones. Sports swimwear in bright colors was also wanted for perfect tanning.
