A Short History of Bodysuits
The which was invented by a famous French acrobat performer Jules Leotard (1838-1870). The leotard is a unisex piece of clothing which covers the exposed legs. The first time the leotard was used was back in 1886. In the early 20th century, leotards were worn by acrobats and circus performers. In the 1920s and 1930s, leotards inspired the creation of women’s swimsuits, which even at the present resemble the classical look of leotards.
Now, unlike a leotard, a bodysuit is made from different fabrics as snaps, velcro or hooks in the crotch area, so that it can be easily closed there. The bodysuit made its appearance in women’s clothing back in 1950, being initially presented by fashion designer Claire McCardell, in any setting: during a concert, for a casual look or for a red carpet appearance. Some of them are Kim Kardashian – of course, Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez or Selena Gomez.
