Vintage Beach IX

Yesterday got away from me, this is Monday's post.

The last of the vintage suits for now. The bare midriff was the beginnings of the bikini. The bikini did not make it's official appearance until 1946. The war effort required all clothing fabric usage to be reduced by 10%. The skirt was the first part to go, then the bikini became a new fashion to be embraced. However, as we have seen, women did not fully embrace the bikini until much later in the century!
