Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Taken from Chapter 10: Sportswear The first bathing suitsIn the 1860s doctors began promoting bathing in lakes and oceans as an aid to good health. The first bathing suits for women were made up of baggy trousers, over which a large, belted cotton shirt was worn. A net or bathing cap kept the hair in place. Men's bathing suits consisted of shorts and a short-sleeved shirt.

Review:

19th Century Clothing is every bit as delightful as its eighteenth-century counterpart -- Joan Payzant, CM, Sept. 1993
