Fact of the Day: Swim Suits

Swimming outdoors had once been something highly discouraged in the Western World. As such the use of a "swim-suit" slowly evolved between the 18th and early 20th century for both men and women. Even the popular bikini swimsuits took quite some time to be adopted by most women. The Catholic church even went to formally say that the bikini was sinful around that time. It was partly-due to Hollywood actresses that made the bikini popular.
