Two-Piece Bathing Suit: 1910-1920. "Towards the end of the 19th century, swimming was becoming a more and more popular pastime in Quebec... During this time, women's bathing suits were like long dresses and were difficult to swim in since they were often worn over a corset until the 1890s. A practical, comfortable women's bathing suit, which only became available at the beginning of the 20th century, would be adopted by woman who... really wanted to swim.
Such a beautiful picture. I love this so much. I also want that bathing suit. It's classic.
