Note that in the late 19th century it was often still considered obscene to be seen ''even in an Old-Timey Bathing Suit'', and beaches installed elaborate [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathing_machine bathing machines]] to ensure there was no chance of [[FullyClothedNudity accidentally seeing a woman's legs]] from the beach. That made this kind of swimsuit also a porn trope when bathing machines were at their zenith, before mixed gender bathing started to become more acceptable in the 1900s. Even during TheEdwardianEra, when standards started to relax, the female version of the Old-Timey Bathing Suit, with its extremely short (by the standards of the 1900s) skirt and the sheer (usually black) [[StockingFiller silk stockings]] that always covered the wearer's legs, was an immensely popular motif in the pinup art and photography (the so-called "French postcards") of the period. The famous illustrator Charles Dana Gibson (creator of the "Gibson Girl"), for instance, drew a lot of pictures of beautiful young women disporting themselves at the seashore in these outfits -- very likely, according to one biographer, so that [[AuthorAppeal he could legitimately draw shapely and exposed feminine legs]].

Annette Kellerman, the Australian swimmer who was one of the first women to attempt to swim the English Channel, was arrested for indecent exposure in Boston when she appeared in public in a swimsuit of her own design.
