It’s easy to get carried away and think that swimwear styles in the past was more beautiful, more elegant and more chic than those available today, but as these photos prove that wasn’t necessarily the case!
The photo above, for example, is a gorgeous photo full of joy and laughter, but unfortunately those flimsy woolen swimsuits have gone completely transparent. How those ladies got out of the water with their modesty in tact I have no idea – and I’m guessing that see-through swimwear would be way more scandalous on a 1920s beach than now. Perhaps they just lounged in the shallows (like the lady below) and hid beneath their voluminous swimming caps until everyone had disappeared and they could make a dash for it.

That is Duke Kahanamoku the Father of Surfing in Hawaii, the 2nd to the last pictures has the young ladies sledding in some snow during the summer at Mt Rainier in Washington State … Don’t know what that’s about …!
LOL, no all the caption said that it was a promotional photo for something (sledging in swimsuits maybe..?). Thanks for the extra info 🙂
On a clear day I can see Mt Rainier and 4 other volcanoes … Have never seen any beachwear sledding however …!
wow, that sounds amazing! Perhaps the beachwaer sledding is something to try next time you have a quiet day 😉
