Sun Bonnets

It's good to see that the Amish ladies enjoyed swimming too.

Curiousity contained

Yes, they wore swimming corsets. See an example at the bottom of an earlier Shorpy post here.

Dress Code

I think all women should go swimming in a dress to appreciate the evolution of the swimsuit.

Just curious

Did women wear corsets under their swimming suits back then? They all seem to have very slender waists.
