Aye well times sure have changed over the decades. And bikinis have changed with those times. Back in the 1920's, 30's, 40's and probably into the 50's women were restricted in what they could wear as "swimwear" on a public beach. In the earlier decades various cities with beaches had the Swimwear Police who would ensure that women were not showing too much. Set 1. 1. Standard women's swimwear during the late 1920's-1930's. 2. We almost have a few camel toes here... 3. Late 1920's. 4. Well the swimwear police were not on duty for this one...check out all the headlights. 5. Some late-1950's ladies swimwear attire. But that would all change in the 2000's.
