Beachwear and Bathing Suit Portraits of Ida Lupino in the 1930s

The 1930s ushered in a new era in bathing suit history. The Maillot style of swimwear, which was the first commercial one-piece swimsuit, became the iconic look of the decade. A company named Lastex invented a thin fabric that gave support to women in the form of girdles and bras. In a huge departure from formerly wool swimsuits, this new fabric was shiny and sleek.


Women in the ’30s showed more skin than in previous years, too: The suits had lower backs and necklines and higher cut legs. Women’s swimsuits varied in styles from one color to multicolor stripes. Some swimsuits even included sea creature and marine-themed appliques!

Here below is a set of glamorous photos that shows portraits of Ida Lupino in beachwear and bathing suits taken for Paramount Pictures in 1934.
