Marilyn Monroe was a well-respected American actress, model and singer. Her glamorous sex appeal and acting skills precede her even to this date. She overcame a difficult childhood to become one of the world’s biggest and most enduring sex symbols. No doubt, she influenced a few styles that managed to survive throughout the years and we couldn’t thank her enough. Hollywood lost Marilyn Monroe over 50 years ago, but as we all know, she remains as iconic as ever.

In the early 1800s, going to the beach became a social activity, so bathing gowns turned into a fashion statement. High-Waisted Bikinis were originally welcomed in the 1900’s and to the average woman, they soon seemed like a thing of the past. No way! Skins was hidden away at best and the navel had no room to be exposed. Marilyn Monroe embraced the design wholeheartedly, her swimsuit moments being high;y adored throughout the years and she kept the idea alive.Her girly and cute portrayal in the modest garb proved to be better than anyone ever thought. Shaping of bodies through swimsuits through the fabrication is now the key.

Knitted swimsuits were made with cotton or elasticated thread, and the body-hugging aesthetic continued well into the future.
