The one piece swimming costume is Australia's contribution to Modernity, and a significant one it is too! We can thank early twentieth-century feminists like Annette Kellerman and
Isabel Latham for taking the style to a world that still swam in pantaloons.
The one piece allowed for athleticism, among men and women alike. The reasons for that are as relevant now, in the age of bikinis and briefs, as they were in the interwar era celebrated in these swimming costumes. With no indirect pressure on the diaphragm, breathing is freed without limited the hight one might from o the weight of the waves they bodysurf.
Items in our heritage range are not for the self-conscious and are certainly not for the weak. They are intended for those ready to scare the living daylights out of anyone swimming slow in their lap lane.
