Photoplay (Dec 1927)
“Are We Returning to Eve?
Order in the class-room. The subject of today’s lecture is the history of the bathing suit, illustrated by Dorothy Sebastian. When Eve went swimming, she wore long hair and a sad expression. The 1898 girl tried to swim in a high-necked gingham outfit with long pantaloons. It couldn’t be done, so Miss 1900 romped in taffeta rompers. The girl of 1927 wears a one-piece suit of jersey, and when she swims, she swims.”
