This is amazing. Modern day swimsuit competition clearly became less about the suit!

Yep, Not much of a swimsuit anymore. Its all about showing the most skin.

It's amazing how people didn't even have belly buttons until the seventies.

I love the modest approach so much more. I think it's WAY sexier to let the imagination be flirted with rather than to be flooded.

Please point me in the direction of a one-piece bathing suit with a giraffe on it. Thanks.

the now pictures make me sad. They're the reason I refuse to go near Jamaica during March, no matter how much my boyfriend wants to go.
