Swimwear has changed a lot in the past century. Women didn’t always have the freedom to wear whatever they wanted to the beach. It’s fair to say that we’ve come a long way in the past century, and so have swimsuits.
You probably don’t think twice about the little bikini sitting in your closet, but 120 years ago you might have gone to jail for wearing it! That little piece of string and cloth has caused quite an uproar through the ages and has come a long way from where it started.
What women have been able to wear to the beach has been a direct reflection of changing social climates and increased freedom for women and girls everywhere. Empowered women everywhere can now choose to wear bikinis that let them look as free and beautiful as they feel.
The evolution of the swimsuit is fascinating and nobody tells the story better than the one and only Amanda Cerny. We loved this video she made showing off how swimsuits have changed through the decades and thought you would too! Check it out below.
