From swimming costumes to bikinis, bathing suits styles have fluctuated from the modest to the more revealing, all in a desire to make us fashionable by the water’s edge. As a city surrounded by water, going to the beach and owning a swimsuit is an essential part of both our wardrobe and our Vancouver identity. Drawing primarily on the collections of fashion historian Ivan Sayers, the Maritime Museum will display examples of swimwear worn in Vancouver from the 1890s to the 1980s. This summer explore the styles, fashions and heritage of our beaches at Babes & Bathers: History of the Swimsuit.
