Athleticwear of Yesteryear
Yesterday, we shared Ralph Lauren's designs for the USA Olympic uniforms. Not suprisingly, they're a perfect representation of the country and our style. However, they also got us thinking: where did we get THAT look? I mentioned previously that Olympians used to compete completely naked, but somewhere down the line, athletes added a bit of clothing. Bathing suits used to be much more conservative, and uniforms were altogether more constricting. Don't believe me? Here are 17 pictures of women athletes and their uniforms. Clearly, we've come a long way. Go USA!
We found tons of jetskiing pics. Must've been big back in the day.
