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!
