one piece

For the ultimate in summer sophistication when we are at the beach or sipping cocktails at the pool, little beats the glamor and beauty of a one piece swimsuit. First seen in 1900, when it was described as a maillot, it gained further notoriety when Australian swimmer Annette Kellerman was arrested on a Boston beach for indecency while wearing one. Public outrage was the response and the one piece became accepted as swimwear by 1910. We do not have to wear only modern styles with sexy cut-outs, if we prefer we can look on Tumblr for ideas on vintage pieces or we can sport swimsuits in cute colors or prints. The possibilities are endless.
