(Photos from: here)
I was browsing the internet and stumbled across this little gem of a gallery at the Elle Magazine website. Seems appropriate now that we’re going into summer and all. But I was especially taken by the earlier photos that could only be in black and white. Such great photos. And it’s such an interesting topic. For me anyway. I had no idea that bikini’s, bare bellies and butts were acceptable in the 40′s! The 30′s even! I thought they were still wearing long johns. I stand corrected. Nice to know I could have slightly fit in back then.
It was a nice little bikini history.. refresher.
