Reinventing 1920s Modest Swimwear Styles

<strong>Reinventing 1920s Modest Swimwear Styles</strong>

The 1920s or the ‘Roaring Twenties’ were a time characterized by true opulence and elegance. And fashion was no exception! As women’s roles in society transformed following the First World War, so did their styles. While trends remained relatively conservative, the luxurious flapper styles became more accessible and practical. This was true for day wear, evening wear, and especially swimwear.

While swim suits were considered revealing for this era, their styles are often considered modest in modern times. Ella Mae Fashion has redesigned 1920s swimwear with a modern twist, implementing bright colors and fun prints with similar silhouettes and cuts. Check out side by side images of 1920s and Ella Mae Fashion swimwear too see if you can tell the difference!
