From bloomers to bikinis, from practical sportswear to sexy fashion statement, this book considers the swimsuit for women as a barometer of changing social convention while providing plenty of examples in color and black and white fashion photographs, drawings, film stills, and magazine advertisements. Organized chronologically, the book focuses on such topics as the bikini, beauty pageants, and popular brands, as well as the influence of couture houses and modern swimsuit designers. Ultimately the book is as much about women and their perceptions of themselves as it is about an article of clothing.
