Vintage Beach Beauties-from bloomers to barely there (60pics)

In the dawn of the 20th century were days of conservatism, especially in swimwear. In the 1900’s it was just not done to have a swimsuit without full coverage, until in 1910 it slowly started to become more liberal. If the people back then only knew about a future filled with bikinis, speedos and burkinis. The world has come a far way taking the conservator out of swimwear. The question does remain: how do you think your grandmother look in a bathing suit? Here at Funnypicsonly.com we decided to make a list of vintage beach beauties! Enjoy and let us know what you think in the comments!
