To be warned, some of the swimsuits are very revealing minus the early years. In fact, back in 1915, the vintage swimsuit could double as long underwear, which slightly improved by 1925 when the bathing attire began to look like a wrestling singlet. It also seemed that over time, the swimsuits got smaller and smaller, peaking in the 1970s. Do you agree?
