What goes around comes around in the fashion world. We never seem to reinvent high fashion, but high fashion seems to follow a cyclical pattern as the years pass on. Today’s swimsuits could be compared to the times of ancient Greece. Nude to almost nothing there, is the direction to which we seem to be headed.

So when it comes to swimwear why would we want to go all the way back to primitive times? I would argue that the 1940s was when we finally got the fashion of swimwear right. Today we call them pin up swimsuits for a reason. It was the height of curve flattering femininity. The idea was not to be unnatural and let it all hang out, but to have a swimsuit that makes a woman’s body beautify and sexy, in a mysterious, dignified, yet sexy way.
