The Evolution of Women’s Swimsuits

Swim hutThe popular women’s swimsuit has changed drastically over past few decades – from basically a suit to something smaller than what many wear under business suits.  How has the change come about?  How did the desire to empower women get involved in the popularity of the bikini?  According to a Princeton study, what kind of empowerment has occurred?  Are the only options a bikini or a grandma swimsuit?  Could it be possible for a woman to display her beauty in a swimsuit that is fashionable, empowering, and yet neither a bikini or a grandma swimsuit?

The video below by Jessica Rey (with no scandalous or alluring photos of women in bikini’s) answers the above questions and gives the viewer food for thought.  The well thought-out and insightful video is well worth watching.
