SWIMSUITS

Betty Paige





1950s bathing suits
Swimwear in the 1950s was still fairly conservative. Most of the pictures shown below are of fashion models and pin-up girls. The swimwear is not necessarily what you would have found the average woman wearing to the beach or out in public.

Two piece suits were becoming the norm but the belly button was generally covered. Lower suit bottoms were hitting the market from France and younger girls in particular were beginning to show their courage in wearing them.

American designers were slow to catch up to the trend so fashion models were forced to improvise. Bunny Yeager a model turned fashion photographer often made her own suits for her models to wear giving her a leg up on her all male competition. Many of the photos below were taken by her.

Some of these models names you will easily recognize, others could have been found gracing the pages of the Men's Magazines of the day.
