Too Cold for Swimsuits

Who could be thinking of lounging around in a one piece swimsuit on a day like today?  Here in Sydney it’s 18 and raining.  This outfit on the front of 1952 French women’s magazine Modes & Travaux is more like it…  This is back in the time (we call vintage) when the perfect body was created by the fashion illustrator to show the garment at it’s best.
