Via Jezebel we discovered an adorable presentation of 1950's swimming caps. Using the puppet stage of Punch & Judy, women in strapless suits peek up in variously decorated rubber caps. Remember, most women didn't really swim in the sense we know today. Instead, they bathed, mainly going for a dip up to the neck at most. The reason? It took a lot of effort to style & set the hair, and no woman wanted to end up with a limp, unstyled coif for the remainder of the day. So much has changed for the better, but I do find the swim caps cute!
