Woman's Striped Bathing Suit, 1920s
This is a Woman's Striped Bathing Suit.
This object is not part of the Cooper Hewitt's permanent collection. It was able to spend time at the museum on loan from Kent State University Libraries as part of The Jazz Age: American Style in the 1920s.
The 1920s witnessed the introduction of formfitting modern bathing suits. This knitted tubular silhouette, with a scoop-necked sleeveless top sewn into a pair of trunks, was worn by men and women. Often available in bright colors, this casual design was known as the "California-style" suit.
