Women Model the Latest Swimwear Ca. 1951Streaming Video - 1951
During the 1950s, popular culture expected women to play the part of the honest, caring, and conservative bastion, and the fashion styles of the decade reflected that. Women's bathing suits covered the whole torso and were often skirted. This was in stark contrast to later trends. In the 1960s women's fashion had taken a turn to showing more skin. The playful mod fashion meant shortened hemlines, funkier prints, and skimpier bathing suits and bikinis.
