One piece bathing suits

I love this vintage photo of actresses Tokugowa Ryouko & Mizuhara Reiko in their swim suits, so 
I pulled out my own snapshots of some suits I used to wear (see below):
Here I am as an adolescent (this suit was red)

 and as a little girl in a blue suit.

There is something about the one-piece style of swim suit that has it all over the two-piece look. And, add a bathing cap and you have an Amy Crehore painting like the one I am showing in Tokyo right now (called The Waiting Room).
I hadn't seen the top photo of the Japanese actresses until the other day 
when my friend Moira Hahn pointed it out (image via, but it's right up my alley!
