Resort Fashions 2013 - Swimsuit Retrospective 1945 Swimsuits - East Coast, West Coast
West Coast 1945
"California" suits for 1945 are styled for active swimming. Strictly functional, they have no shoulder straps, and minimum "diaper-style" pants. These suits are the ultimate development of the skintight knitted suits which first appeared in the early 1920s.
East Coast 1945
These East Coast suits are a bit more dressy and feminine. Made of draped
material, they hint at the beginning of regression to ruffles and
frills. Many have long detachable skirts. The suits are paired to show each
with and without the skirt.
