Swimsuit Fashion Throughout History:

As you may have guessed, All Wet Beachwear loves everything about swimwear fashion.  Whether bikinis, one pieces or cover ups we love it all! Therefore, we decided to dedicate this blog post to the history of swimsuit fashion. From the days when swimwear fashion consisted of your birthday suit to present day celebrity lines this post exposes it all.

Back in classical antiquity there was no such thing as swimwear fashion. Men and women bathed in the nude.  It was only in the 18th century when people started covering their bodies when swimming.  In fact, the swimsuit was created for the purpose of hiding the human body.  It was thought to be immoral to show ones body and thus the swimsuit was born.

In the 19th century public bathing started to become more popular. The 19th century swimwear fashion was nothing like today's.  Women wearing 19th century swimsuits were covered, almost entirely. These swimsuits were usually made of wool and resembled a gown covering the body from a woman’s shoulders down to her knees. In addition, they included a set of trousers with leggings.

Bikini’s began to be introduced just after World War II.  Interestingly enough, bikinis were named after the site of nuclear weapons testing, Bikini Atoll, because they had an “explosive effect”. The early two piece suits were not the sexy ones we know today, instead they covered much more of the body.  It wasn’t until the “60’s that bikini’s began to become known as sexy, revealing swimwear.

In 2010 swimwear is oh so popular. Celebrities to the ever day average girls spend hours picking out just the right suit.  There are countless designers and styles to pick from and covering up the body generally isn’t the goal. And, the very sexy Monokini has found its way into the closets of some of the most stylish women.

What will the next biggest swimwear fashion be?

Swimwear Do's and Don'ts

Looking your best, feeling comfortable and keeping on top of the latest fashions can be difficult to say the least. But don’t worry, All Wet Beachwear is here to help! Here are some Do’s and Don'ts we think every lady should know:

Do wear the right color suit:

Blonds look their best in pastel colors like light pink, lavender and mint green.

Brunettes will also benefit from a beautiful pastel bikini but can, if the mood strikes, wear more vivid colors like red, deep purple and orange.

Black haired beauties should consider rich wintry colors like emerald green, icy blues and luscious pinks.

Redheads do better in blues, browns, and golden yellows.

Still not sure which color suit to get? Black and white generally go with every hair color.

Don’t wear the wrong style suit for your body type:

Bandeau tops may help limit tan lines but should not be worn by busty ladies. These strapless tops can’t support a larger chest leaving the busty woman pulling up her bikini top all day and avoiding those waves.

To enhance a smaller chest try wearing a bikini top with layers of tiered ruffles.  This look will instantly add volume and give the illusion of a fuller chest. Try our Despi Cindy- Etnopop.

Do show your style with the right accessories:

Cover ups are all the rage these days! Whether you’re attending a lavish pool side event or playing around on the beach cover ups take your swimwear style to another level.

Pick the right footwear.  If you can walk across the sand in a pair of stilettos, you deserve a gold medal, but it’s still a Don’t. Instead try one of our elegant sandals or if you want that causal look we suggest the simple flip flop.

What are some of your favorite beach and poolside styles?

Honeymoon Prepared: From Swimsuits to Sandals

You’ve just gotten married and are ready to head to the tropics for a much anticipated honeymoon. What do you pack? Keep in mind you will be spending the majority of your days on beautiful white beaches and nights dancing under the stars. Make sure to pack the right clothes, keeping all eyes on the bride.

Most brides spend countless hours prepping to look their best for that one special day.  Don't let months of dieting, working out and grooming go to waste. Make sure to pack some sexy swimwear to show off all that hard work to your new hubby.


Be sure to bring several suits to fit your mood and show your new husband how stylish his bride is.  We suggest bringing at least three suits, a stunning one piece, flirty two piece and of course a sexy two piece as well.

Despi Diamond 1 Piece: This white one-piece double strap halter with dramatic plunging neckline and elegant tie with stone detail is the perfect honeymoon swimwear. Just because it isn’t your wedding day doesn’t mean you aren’t still the blushing bride.

Poko Pano Cabana 2 Piece: The bride should always be simply beautiful and this glamorous, white, solid two piece will assure you are. It has a twisted bandeau top with molded cups for support and ties in the back for a subtly sexy look. The adjustable side bottom features square gold hardware to ad a splash of color.

Paola Robba Vanessa: Every honeymoon requires at least one sexy two piece. Our red, U ring, bandeau top will definitely grab your new husband's eye. Its low rise tanga single tie-side bottom with white rope detail on the left hip adds just a hint of your newly wed status.

Cover Ups

When packing for a tropical honeymoon the focus tends to be on swimsuits but don’t forget to pack at least two cover ups. Cover ups protect you from the sun and can be worn when dining in and outdoors, keeping your look stylish, day and night.

Vix Daisy Tunic: This white plunging v-neck tunic with daisy embroidery on sleeves and bottom is perfect for day time wear on the beach or a quick walk into town.

Hale Bob "Cabana" Blue Silk Chiffon Beaded Tunic Top: Going for a more sexy/sophisticated look? Our Cabana Color Me Pretty Sand-Washed Silk Chiffon long sleeve beaded V neck tunic top is perfect for an evening sipping Mai Tai’s and dancing under the stars.


Now that you’ve packed your suits and cover ups its time to focus on footwear.  Although you will be spending most of your trip barefoot on the beach, don’t forget that the perfect sandal is key to a great look.

Mystique Sandals Silver Beaded Thong: One word sums these sandals up, seductive. Our silver studded thong sandals will sparkle in the sun or under the stars and go beautifully with any party dress or bikini. They feature a 1/2 inch stacked heel with a tan leather sole and comfortable suede lining on the straps. Get ready to dance the night away!

Mystique Sandals White and Gold Sandals: Every tropical honeymooner needs a casual sandal. These white and gold sandals are single toned with a pretty white pearl centerpiece. To give them that seashore feel these sandals are finished with tiny seashells and golden straps.

Now get packing and enjoy your honeymoon!
