How far we've come.

Fashion Journal

The good people at Mode have brought together one beautiful lady, a team of body painters and a videographer to deliver this look back at 100 years of swimwear.

And it's pretty neat. It follows the liberation of female dressing, right up to the fashion-forward statements the past decade has brought.

While we're impressed at the artistic skills of the makeup squad, we're more blown away by just how this model is completely body confident every single look – including the awks nipple covers and nude undies. It's impressive stuff.
