1920s swimwear

A group of young women photographed in 1920s swimwear, some of which is lovely and some of which is terribly unflattering. The photos were taken at Potomac Tidal Basic beach in Washington in 1922. The woman on the left above (and in the boat below) is actress Kay Laurell, but I don’t know about the others. Which of these 6 different outfits is your favourite? I like the lady sitting on the boat with the bandana and black swimsuit best.
