A Little History About The One Piece Bathing Suits
Austrian-born Rudi Gernreich is credited with designing the modern one-piece bathing suit in 1964. He was interested in creating designs that freed women from restrictive clothing, and his one-piece swimsuit was intended to do just that. Though it was initially met with criticism and ridicule, the one-piece bathing suit has become a popular choice for women who want to feel comfortable and stylish at the beach or pool.
One piece bathing suits come in a variety of styles, designs, and shapes, including monokinis, string bodies, sling bikinis, and halter-necks. The two-piece bikini swimsuit was originally designed in the 1940s as a modification of the one-piece Bikini swimsuit. The popularity of one-piece swimwear is continuing to rise.
The tank suit is probably the most popular one-piece swimming costume. The name “tank” comes from the phrase “swimming tank,” referring to a pool that used to be called a “pool.” The tankini which combines a tank top and bottom section of the bikini into one garment has replaced the tank suit.
The One-Piece Sling Bikini
The popular one-piece bathing suit is the sling bikini. It has side straps that rise up over women’s breasts and then stretch down their shoulders, covering their backs and creating a thong. This way, the sling bikini becomes extremely handy since it combines two elements (the top and bottom pieces) into a single garment.
The monokini was created by Austrian Rudi Gernreich in 1967. It’s a one-piece topless bathing suit for females that includes only the lower portion of the bikini. Gernreich took the term from mono-indicating single or single and is another variation of the original two-piece bikini bathing suit. The word may also be used to refer to one-piece swimsuits other than a sling suit, such as a triangle bikini.
String body, halter-necks, maillots, tank suits, plunge fronts, and pretzel suits are just a few examples of one-piece bathing costumes for women.
