EDITORS COMMENTS
Step into the world of leisure and relaxation with this charming photograph from 1931, showcasing a selection of fashionable sea suits designed for sunning and swimming. The image features three outfits that embodied the spirit of the 1930s, an era known for its preoccupation with both sunbathing and swimming. On the left, a woman dons a gaily coloured outfit from Woollands. The two-piece ensemble consists of a striped blue and white heavy cotton swimsuit with braces to the trousers and a short bolero coat. This outfit was perfect for both swimming and sunbathing, providing ample coverage and protection from the sun. In the middle, another woman is seen wearing a swimsuit, shorts, and a sweater from Lillywhites. The swimsuit, designed to absorb the sun's rays, is a one-piece with a high waistline and straps that crisscross at the back. The shorts and sweater were essential for keeping warm between swims, making this outfit a versatile choice for a day at the beach. Lastly, a third woman is pictured in a swimming costume also from Lillywhites. This costume, with its bold geometric design and high-waisted silhouette, was a popular choice for sunbathing and swimming during the 1930s. The era's fashionable women embraced the trend of wearing colourful, eye-catching outfits that allowed them to enjoy the sun and water in style. This photograph is a captivating glimpse into the past, offering a glimpse into the world of 1930s beachwear and the leisurely pursuits of the time. Whether you're a fan of fashion history or simply looking for inspiration for your next beach vacation, this image is sure to transport you to a bygone era of sun, sand, and style.
