From Bloomers and Black Stockings to Baggies and BikinisAt the turn of the century, lounging couples covered the beach much as they do today. But the women were fully dressed, and men wore hats and coats. Laws prohibited sitting on the beach in bathing attire.Today, from bikinis to tankinis, women's beachwear stresses comfort and individuality. The popularity of the local surf culture makes baggy "board shorts" the most popular choice of men's swimsuits.
