You might not know it, but those swimsuits you’re yearning to take out of the closet (because summer’s almost here!) have come a long way.

Yeah, women’s swimsuits have evolved drastically over the past 100 years. The shapes, the colours, the styles – everything is completely different. Women walking on the beach in the ’20s would probably let out a loud gasp if they saw what we rocked on the beach today, and vice versa. Don’t believe us? Watch the video above to see for yourself.
