Lovely Women’s Two-Piece Swimsuit From the Early 1940s

In the 1940s, when Americans were faced with fabric shortages, hemlines became shorter, necklines became lower, and outfits became slimmer and more streamlined.

In addition to everyday wear, bathing attire also changed. For the first time in the United States, the two-piece swimsuit emerged presumably due, at least in part, to fabric rationing. It should be noted, however, that modesty was still very much in still, so ladies’ two-piece bathing suits still covered a far amount of skin.

One thing that is quite noticeable about two-piece swimwear at the time is that few, if any, revealed a lady’s belly button! What tasteful way to introduce the latest in swim fashion while maintaining a proper, lady-like appearance!
