Paper Doll Swimwear Fashions of the 1930s - The Women

Recently I came across a book called Thirty from the 30's - Paper dolls for grownups, Costumes of the great stars, by Tom Tierney. What fabulous black and white illustrations from the stars of the 1930s. We scanned some of the swimwear produced there. I think it should prove as a good reference point for what swimwear fashions for women looked like in the 1930s. Enjoy!

Kay Francis - Lets Go Native

Joan Crawford - Dancing Lady

Jeanette MacDonald - Love Me Tonight

Jean Harlow - Goldie

Greta Garbo - Two Faced Woman

Ginger Rogers - Gold Diggers of 1933

Claudette Colbert - Bluebeards Eighth Wife

Carole Lombard - True Confession

Sue May Wong


Anita Louise

Tomorrow we'll take a look at the male film stars in swimwear from the 1930s.

Swimwear was infinitely more figure-flattering then, wasn't it?
