“The Flapper awoke from her lethargy of sub-deb-ism, bobbed her hair, put on her choicest pair of earrings and a great deal of audacity and rouge and went into the battle. She flirted because it was fun to flirt and wore a one-piece bathing suit because she had a good figure … she was conscious that the things she did were the things she had always wanted to do. Mothers disapproved of their sons taking the Flapper to dances, to teas, to swim and most of all to heart."

Zelda Fitzgerald, “Eulogy on the Flapper”, Metropolitan Magazine (1922)

Amusing to see that the one-piece suit (as opposed to the Edwardian bathing-dress and drawers) was considered the daring version -- who would have dreamed that then the two-piece suit would become once again the default option? ;-)
