In 1890, when women were just beginning to venture into the traditional men's sports arena, a bathing outfit could weigh as much as 20 pounds and cover up as much as full street dress. Our lighter-weight version features a knee-length gored skirt that buttons over a one-piece romper, topped off with a jaunty cap.

Suggested fabrics: Medium-weight cottons, linens, blends. Original garments were made in light to medium-weight wools.
