Even hippies found it shocking July 30 2009
"Mme. Prochnik, July 7, 1924."Shorpy comment of the day: "As a teenager in the '60s I was shocked and dumbfounded when I saw photos of my prim mother as a teenager in similar outfits. "How could you ever leave the house and go out in public like that? Why did your parents allow it? What did the guys say?" I asked her. She was embarrassed by my shock but answered that that's what all the bathing suits were like -- unlined jersey. If you wanted to go swimming or go to the beach, you had no choice. And since all the girls looked like that, they never gave it any thought."
