Bathing Suits & Body Paint...60's Style

To Bare or Not To Bare Is No Longer The Question

In 1967 girls weren't worried about the effects of the sun on the skin. They wanted that bronze tan and would go to extreme measures to achieve. During that year, bathing suits became more daring with popping cutouts strategically placed for provocative tanning. Water-based paints decorate the body and hair goes wild with dynel tresses pinned to the hair. Yes, you may call these wide-open-space-suits...

Also seen in 1967 was the higher cut on the leg for a longer, leggier look. Colorful, large, op-art earrings were a must to wear.
